They're Random, Baby!

Halo: Reach Cutscene Library

The Reach Cutscene Library began appearing online on September 28, 2010 - just two weeks after the game's release. Thanks once again to Cody Miller for his help in recording. As of July 20, 2013, almost all of these cutscenes are now in surround sound - again, thanks to Cody. (The variant films, and the streaming versions, are still straight stereo.) Surround audio degrades gracefully to stereo if your playback device can't handle the extra channels.

Downloads are available in 2160p, 1080p, and 720p.

You can view a streaming version of the cutscene by clicking on a thumbnail.
