More info regarding RECON

Bungie have posted up an FAQ on their site and have several interesting things to say regarding their new game. Firstly, it will be released next Fall and will have it’s own retail release and will not be released on the Marketplace. It will also feature exclusive maps for Halo 3 multiplayer but will also act as a way of playing Halo 3 Multiplayer with the existing playerbase. This means that people can now play Halo 3 Multiplayer without using the Halo 3 disc and can use RECON instead. RECON will also feature it’s own set of 1,000 gamerscore points that are exclusive to the campaign mode itself. There will be no new online ones that are set just for RECON but the online achievements can be unlocked whilst using RECON to play online. Bungie have also stated that the Mythic map pack will be released early 2009 during the ‘winter’ quarter.

Despite what some rumours have been saying, Halo 3: RECON will not be a third-person squad based game but will be a First Person Shooter that won’t be too dissimilar to the rest of the Halo franchise. RECON has also been announced to be set during the events of Halo 2 and what happened after Regret slip spaced in New Mombasa.

Other than writing about Halo 3: RECON, I haven’t been too busy. I saw my family today and had a mightily hearty burger. It was good. We then went to Tesco and bought a load of rubbish. I also went to Nando’s and had only a chicken drumstick and then went to the cinema. We watched City of Embers and it was 2 hours of ‘meh’.
