The marketing for Halo Reach is getting into over-drive now with remote-controlled robots and now the Halo: Reach "Monument of Light... commemorating the heroes of Noble Team and the planet Reach."
Yes, in an echo of the 'Tribute of Light' planned to stand at Ground Zero in New York
, Bungie and Microsoft want people to visit a website at RememberReach.com
where they can "participate in a one-of-a-kind experience: the creation of a monument of light commemorating the heroes of Noble Team and the planet Reach."
The plan is that in the lead up to the September 14th release of the game people visiting the site "can contribute a point of light that will help form a dramatic monument to Halo: Reach
. That robot arm comes into play as guiding it to their chosen coordinates, visitors will add another light to the sculpture, honouring the heroic Spartans in the most anticipated game of 2010."
Visitors can also see there live-action shorts by director Noam Murro that "bring to life glimpses of what it was like living on Reach just prior to the Covenant invasion."
