Halo 3: RECON dropping next Fall

The new campaign expansion for Halo 3 has officially been announced and is titled ‘Halo 3: RECON’. The trailer can be found on the homepage of Bungie.net and lives up to the rumour and speculation that had raced across the internet. It shows the aftermath of the supposed ‘jump’ into slipspace made by the Prophet of Regret in Halo 2 and it leads the audience to believe that all is lost. However, one ODST drop pod made it onto the surface of Earth and opens up to show our new hero. Many believed that an ODST member would become the main character and Bungie haven’t disappointed. The graphics are truly beautiful, but is not yet known whether it was pre-rendered or came straight from the game engine.

Judging by the trailer, this expansion will become available next Fall and will not be a new title but instead will be an expansion. The name of the expansion is very interesting and ironic in the fact that people have been asking for ‘Recon’ (an in-game armour perm) for a long time. It appears as if Bungie has used this as an in-joke due to the irony that people have been asking for something that they didn’t know what it was for a while now. The trailer is fucking awesome and is more than enough to make any Xbox fanboy cry with excitement.

I know I did.
