Halo: Reach update: Forge, filters and statues

Bungie dropped its Weekly Update on Halo: Reach a little early this week, which is probably a good thing because there's a lot to take in. First and foremost, the update lists nearly every item available in Forge -- including their cost -- allowing budding map designers a chance to start their planning phase a little early. There's also a bunch of new graphical filters to choose from, including the nifty "Pen & Ink" filter seen above.

If that's not enough for you, the update also details the return of Race mode (now with landmines!), assassination animations (there are over 40 in Reach) and details how you can win one of the Noble Team statues displayed at E3. Check out a behind the scenes video on the creation of said statues after the break.
