Shacknews has a great article describing what will be in the final product for Halo Reach's multiplayer, as well a sample of details for the May Beta. The original article is here, and I've listed some of the cool unique changes I found:

Active Roster - Like with Halo 2, you'll see a list of what your Xbox Live friends are doing within Reach at the menu. You'll get detailed information about any friends playing Reach including who they are partied with, and what game they are in.

Improved Voting System - Halo: Reach will utilize a new voting system, which will provide players with four options. The first will be a combination of map and gametype, and the other three options will offer players additional choices to vote on.

Ranked and Social Combined - Since the hardcore will be in the Arena, Bungie doesn't want to further splinter the community. In Halo 3, Ranked and Social playlists served two different purposes. Ranked games were generally of a higher quality, while social games were more casual.

Streamlined Party-Up - After a match, players will be kept together and will be automatically rolled into the next match.

Matchmaking Connection Options - The options for finding games in matchmaking will be more open to the player. If you only ever want to play in games with a good connection, that can be set in the options. If you only ever want to play against players of a similar skill, that can be set.
