News

This thread was made to post any news or speculation on what this project could be and who's behind it?

____________________________________________
My first guess is it is one of the games Bungie said they would make in order to split from microsoft.

I can't see it being Halo 4 in the sense of it following the Master Chief, but I think it will be set in the Halo universe, maybe following a squad of Marines or something like that. I think it would be good to see a GRAW style squad shooter, but with a better interaction with vehicles and more open maps. I just hope another company come in and try and make a Halo clone just to make easy money off the name.

I would rather no more Halo than a cheap knockoff made without help from bungie.

It could follow one of the other spartans maybe Kelly or whatever here name is, the one that went of with Dr Halsey after Halo CE.

I still like my idea of them working on the mysterious ending to Halo 3 though.

The prequel to halo would be about when they first come into contact with the Covenant. Could be a good idea. In the first novel they follow the master chief when the other spartans go down onto reach and it could be interesting to hear the story of the sparatans that did go to reach

the story of harvest upto ? is being told by halo wars.

but a prequel or maybe Halo 1.5. Just joking about the title but there is a good story from the novels about how Master Chief makes it back to Earth.

Yeah I noticed this on Bungie this morning i was really confused. I heard a lot about the arg and stuff. Though my friend said after reading the books the vehicle chief is on is in bound to planet onyx where a few of the last spartans remain. Maybe its time to see what its like on onyx with others. No more halo maybe onyx haha?

I like that idea. Just a quick wuestion though, are the spartans on Onyx from the Spartan II program or Spartan III, because they never met each other and John (Master Chief) being a Spartan II meeting the Spartan III's would be weird. Maybe Dr Halsey is there too.

Talking

The new game is called Halo 3 Recon. It is an expansion to Halo 3. In the game you get a new set of achievents (1000GS). This time you are an ODST, and there is a new campaign, it is set in New Mombasa.

From what I have heard, yes. You enter orbit just after Regret jumps away from New Mombasa in Halo 2.

This is still supposed to run on the Halo 3 engine and you can't play as the ODST in online multiplayer. That will be left to the spartans. The mythic map pack is set to release early 2009 and more maps to come with Halo 3: Recon.

You should watch the trailer that they released on bungie.net (visit hereand follow links), it shows the ODST wielding a new gun to.

Gotta love bungie.

Can't wait till fall 2009.

Some very nice ideas a prequel would be sweet, to see how it all started.

Bungie will release two expansion packs for Halo 3 in the upcomming year. There will be Halo 3: Recon and the mythic map pack.

The mythic map pack contains:
Assembly (Purple Reign)
Citadel (unknown covenant-set map)
Heretic (unknown covenant-set map)
Orbital (human-set map aka Moonbase)
and will most likely earn you all the remaining achievements post TU2.

Halo 3: Recon, however,comes complete with a new campaign, and you will play as an ODST.

The story starts with you entering orbit just after Regret jumps away from New Mombasa in Halo 2.

This is still supposed to run on the Halo 3 engine and you can't play as the ODST in online multiplayer. That will be left to the spartans. However being a bungie game, I'm sure they will release more stuff for online play.

The release dates are currently:

Gotta love bungie. Can't wait till fall 2009.

About the achievements, no one at bungie has been very clear on this, however, I believe, from what I've heard, after the mythic map pack releases, all Halo 3 achievements should be obtainable. Halo 3: Recon should come complete with a new 1000g.

That's all I know for now. You really should watch the trailer. It is awesome.

Yes a link to the source. That was smart thinking (slaps himself across the head for not thinking of it).

^^^^^^^^^^^
I like that idea!
________________________
Don't forget though the marines in the Halo games can still take a bit of punishment and seeming as though ODST's are super-marines there must be a higher threshold for pain then graw or vegas.

To me those games serve their purpose, but there are enough games and companys that make those games. Halo has always been a bit easier to play and where other games are about stealth, Halo is about your timing (mele, grenade). It would be nice to have to strategise a bit more (like that section in Tsavo Highway; where there are tons of brutes, and you get pinned down for ages because of two phantoms full of the apes), but no where near the point where advancing 10 meters becomes impossible.

Definate Halo 4

There will DEFINATELY be Halo 4, as mentioned previously, the 'secret' Legendary ending of Halo 3, shows Master Chief drifting off towards the planet now known as Black Onyx. This planet houses larges ammounts of other Spartans, yes, there are more. One of which is female, and she designed Cortana in the likeness of herself, so perhaps even a little romance twist with the new title ?

Bungie have sold the rights to Halo, so it's all under the wing of Microsoft Game Studios, and you can be sure that they are milking this game as much as humanly possible. There are several titles for decade ahead all based both loosely and heavily on Halo. Halo 3: Recon, is of course the ODST title we had all been wondering about, Halo Wars is almost like the in-between title, and Halo 4 is probably coming next. So be prepared.

Latest bungie podcast specifically says, 'No GRAW, no squad based. Recon is a First Person Shooter, same Halo experience with different tactics (Stealth)' (Bungie employees).

I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard that!

i totaly agree with the GRAW style of gameplay i think that would bring somthing to halo that it is missing

I haven't updated this section in a while but I thought it was about time. Halo: ODST (formerly Recon) will aparently, from what I figure ODST will be the first chance for Halo fans to get their hands on the second half of the Mythic Map Pack. Also the Bungie team have apparently reached the "Representative Experience Milestone", which is fancy talk for a playable version of the game. The Bungie staff will all play through the game and discuss its awesomeness! (HELL YEAH) Marty O'Donnell is hard at work recording stuff. The mission dialogue is written and implemented. There are people working on enemy behaviours and decorating things.

In other news... Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly and Halo 3 is apparently going to be playing a bigger role this time round.
