Confusion of what's set to happen with Halo

Ok so the new Mythic Map Pack has been advertised forever now and I've always wondered how it's going to work.
As of right now this is how I understand it.

You will be able to get the first 3 maps of it through Halo Wars and separate download later on. and then the last three will come with Halo 3: ODST.

For that part let me know if I'm wrong.



Now here's the second part of my confusion. To get the Recon Armor you have to do the Vid Master Challenges. Now one of those challenges is on Halo3:ODST. Is Halo3:ODST going to register as an expansion to the Halo3 game and going to work under the same save files as Halo3? If so then how is Halo3:ODST going to have it's own 1000GS? Wouldn't that technically make Halo3 a 2750GS game?

I'm really mixed up n this, if anyone can sghare accurate information and not just specualtions it would be VERY appreciated!

You will get recon in ODST, not Halo 3.

The rest is a mystery to me too.

Ive heard that ODST is a add on to the game in disc form, dont get me wrong now, it still has the full campaign plus 1000 g's, but the maps, as bungie released in a faq made by a bungie employee, the maps from this disc as well as all unlockable armour will be fully playable in halo 3, thus the games title " Halo 3 : ODST" because this is an add on.

Ok what's happening is the extra 500g added to Halo 3 is ODST's achievement.

ODST is not a full game with like 15 levels it is an expansion to Halo 3.
Bungie even told everyone this on Bungie.net

But because of how big the expansion will be it is being sold on a disc also to let the non XBL players have a chance to play ODST

And your vidmaster confusion is...When you unlock all vidmaster achievements it will unlock the recon armour for your "HALO 3" online character.

Has that cleared it up?

I feel like in the case of ODST...that it will probably come with one of those cards with the additional maps. Who knows it may be offered in the XBL Marketplace for a lot of MicroPoints, but I know that when ODST comes out, I think it will be badass to have that ODST case. But I feel that they will include those cards that you received if you pre-ordered Halo Wars with like 5 different codes for the additional maps, etc.

As far as Recon Armor goes, after you complete all the Vid aster Achievements, and then the rest of the Mythic Map Pack Achievements from the card you get with ODST, then it will most likely unlock. Although I feel like Bungie wouldn't put a new game like ODST as an add-on on the XBL Marketplace, I could be wrong.

So, would someone with Halo 3: ODST be able to play against people who decided not to get it, and still have Halo 3.

That'd what I wanna know... :P

I could have sworn I read somewhere that since the two games are practically the same thing and will have the same matchmaking, you can play people from Halo 3 while playing ODST.

It's entirely possible I'm wrong though.

There will be the other 3 maps available for download before ODST & ODST will have ALL halo 3 maps & a couple new ones.

There are the Halo 3 vid master achievements that you have to do & there is more vid master achievements on ODST.Also, ODST is on a separate disc but with the same Halo engine,matchmaking,forge,theater,& custom games the only difference is the campaign.

There is everything I know & I might be wrong or right I don't know but thats what I know for sure.

well i read that halo odst will be exatly the same as halo 3 but with a new campaign and 1000G of achievements, the server of halo 3 and odst will be the same so you can play with the people who have odst or halo 3, but its not an add-on to halo 3, its a separate game with the same server as the halo 3, and the 750G of the halo 3, will be too in the halo 3 odst, so its like (HALO 3 1000G) + (Online Achievements 750G) + (1000G HALO 3: ODST), to explain this i will write an example, if you have played halo 3 and got the achievement "vidmaster challenge: Annual" it will apear in your achievements of halo 3, AND if you buy the game halo 3 ODST and you see your achievement, you will see the 1000G points of the odst plus the 750G of the title update 2 and you will have your achievement "vidmaster challange: Annual" in the halo 3 odst achievement actived too, so probably when you get all the vidmaster challenges the Recon armor will be in the halo 3 odst only, because you will be able to see all the vidmaster challenges from the halo 3 odst achievement list only, that means that if you got all your vidmaster challanges you can't see them all in the halo 3 achievement list, unless when the halo 3 odst game comes out bungie make an update to the achievement of halo 3 so the other vidmaster challanges (that i think will worth 0G) can be seen there too

but maybe im wrong

I'm sure i read somewhere that the MP will be connecting to the EXACT same server as Halo3 does. therefore the multiplayer will be no different & Halo3 players will be connecting to Halo:ODST players and vice versa

@ ODST armour, you will unlock this after completing the 4 "Vidmaster" achievements in halo3. There may be some in Halo:ODST's achievement list we will have to see as the time comes by. Possibly cross achievements? like get the 4 Halo3 ones & the 2 Halo:ODST achievements before ODST armour will unlock?

& i have no idea about the map situation as i did not buy halo wars, i bought the maps of the marketplace.

You must be thinking of Recon Armor, the only ODST armor is the helmet. (And no they won't be adding ODST shoulders, Bungie has announced they will not be making any new multiplayer armor.)
