Jetpacks are a new feature in the game, hence the demonstration. The dangerous act was performed by globally renowned stunt maestro Yves Rossy aka "Rocketman", who has crossed the English Channel on his jetpack and plans to tackle the Grand Canyon.

Halo: Reach tells the story of Noble Team, a collective of brave Spartans who risk everything to save lives. The planet Reach is mankind's last line of defence against the Covenant enemy and their ultimate goal - the destruction of Earth.

Halo: Reach

More than 2.7 million players participated in the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta test in May. This figure is much higher than that of Halo 3, suggesting the title could reach new levels of popularity.

To date, nearly 34 million copies of Halo games have been sold and some 3.3 billion hours has been spent on Xbox Live playing them. Halo: Reach is released September 14 - Special midnight openings will take place in numerous shops throughout various international cities. ®
