Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta Starts May 3

Halo fans, make sure you have your copy of Halo 3: ODST handy in May, as Bungie and Microsoft have announced the official date you can start playing the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta.

You probably already had May—or the entire spring season—booked, but put May 3 in your calendar as the day you'll start playing.

Microsoft expects the Halo: Reach preview is "on track to be the largest beta program of its kind on any console, is expected to see millions of participants when it begins."

Kotaku is at Microsoft's X10 right now and we might even be playing Halo: Reach.
