New Life is a live-action short film for the Remember Reach advertisement campaign. It depicts a couple arguing over whether they would stay in Visegrad, or abandon their old life and move to a bigger city.
July 23rd, 2552.
A man walks across his living room and sits down. We can see that the homestead is sparsely furnished.
A woman, clearly pregnant, walks towwards him.
Woman: The timing is insane.
Man: Why? All of our friends have already gone. We can't live in this kiva anymore. Manassas is the only choice.
The woman walks into the kitchen and turns around.
Woman: And leave my family? We've been here for three generations. You think I could just up and go?
Man: Why not? There's nothing in Visegrad anymore. It's dying. Right along with this farm.
Woman: I'm so sick of this argument. If we go, how are you going to support us?
The man shrugs
Man: I'll find a job. Alright, two if I have too. Things will get better.
Woman: You don't know that.
Man: Maybe not. But it's better than staying here and having no future at all.
Sirens blare as Military Warthogs and troopers rush past. The man stands up and walks to the window. A Plasma explosion can be seen reflecting off the window.
We see the sun disappearing behind the planet Reach.
- It is odd that these two are still in Visegrad when it is clear in the level "Winter Contingency", the place is deserted. However, it is possible they could be the farmers found hiding in a barn by Emile and Jorge. However, this is equally as unlikely, since the man in the video does not have a beard, as the farmer found does. However, judging by the plasma explosion at the start, that they might have been killed in the initial attack.
- It is odd to find warthogs and marines mobilizing to fight a Covenant force, when the attack is initially seen as a insurrectionist terrorist hijack. It can't be Charlie 3, because they only had ONE warthog. However, this might have been the local milita.
