Exclusive concept artwork from Halo: Reach

What’s left to be said about Halo: Reach? It’s the biggest entertainment launch of the year, has near perfect review scores across the board and has been in consoles worldwide for over a fortnight now. Surely it’s time for the words to stop and the game play to begin?

Well, maybe. But before you start your 200th round of Firefight of the day, why not take a peek at ShortList’s gallery of concept art for the game? Before the maps were designed and before the Spartans were rendered, this is where Bungie started the years-long process of making its final ever entry in the franchise it created.

The drawings show the game was clearly a labour of love for the team and, what’s more, they’re exclusive to the new-look ShortList.com. And there's even more, right here.

(Halo: Reach is out now exclusively on Xbox 360)
