Reach being a planet inhabited by Humans, that was taken over by the covenant. What makes the battle of Reach so important is because it is here that the original group of Spartan Warriors were wiped out, leaving Master Chief as one of the only Spartans in left existence.

There have been several updates on the Kojima teaser site since we mentioned the countdown on our site. Until this point the website has started to rain with lightning and thunder striking every few seconds.
