Halo 3: ODST and what we know


We all know that Halo 3: ODST (or ODST for short) will be an expansion of the Halo universe. Now, for those who do not know about the actual “Halo Universe (read a book sometime!), the ODST unit or “Helljumpers” are a favorite for fans of Halo lore. While the game sticks with the core Halo mechanics you are in fact limited in your abilities due to you playing the roll of a regular human. This means less health and the Brutes are much bigger!


While all this is well known, what few may know is that this foray in the Halo Universe will be more of an open world (it was only a matter of time) which is a departure for the standard mission based mechanic that the Halo franchise is known for. ODST will also be shipping with 3 new maps for the Halo 3 Multiplayer: Citadel, Heretic, and Longshore. Halo: ODST will be a stand alone disc, from the likes of things, which means owning Halo 3 is not a requirement to play through the game. So for those of you who did not get Halo 3 (all ten of you) don’t worry about it!


Being that E3 is right around the corner, it won’t be to surprising to see a slew of Halo: ODST content during the event. There could be some in-game footage and new multiplayer details revealed. Halo 3: ODST will be releasing on September 30, 2009 exclusively on Xbox 360.
