Mythic update: New Sandbox screenshots

At last, we have some screenshots of Sandbox being played and not that ugly screenshot they released last week of the map from above. There are also some nice interviews with Bungie about the new maps and they touch on some interesting topics.

Interview at IGN is here.

Interview and pics can be found at T3 here. (For an easy look at the screenshots follow this link.)

The interviews touch on several things that have already been touched upon in the past and discussed at great length. However, there is one part that caught my eye:

T3: Apart from making new Halo 3 content, Bungie is working on Halo 3: ODST – is there any crossover between the games?

Lars Bakken:  Hmmm, that’s an interesting question. There are the Vidmaster Achievements that we’ve talked about a bit in the past. The gist is that if you finish all 4 Vidmaster Challenges in Halo 3, and then also conquer the final 3 Vidmasters in Halo 3: ODST, players will unlock the coveted Recon :armour in Halo 3. There just might be some other things too, but I don’t think we can talk about that yet.

It makes me wonder what other kinds of cross-over there may be between ODST and Halo 3. Could we be seeing more armor permutations that are ODST specific besides Recon? Bungie may well do so, what with Microsoft’s aggressive marketing tactics. It will force people to buy the new game in order to sport some new armor that is not unlockable within Halo 3. I suspect that the rumour mill is only just beginning to turn.
