Halo 3: ODST Released Worldwide

Halo fans will be champing at the bit to grab a copy of the latest game in the franchise

Halo 3: ODST is Microsoft’s latest installment of the popular franchise, whereby after finishing the fight with Master Chief in Halo 3, players now have the opportunity to take a step back in time and experience the “Halo” universe from a whole new perspective.

Players are put in the boots of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper and must search for clues to find out what happened to their squad when a drop into the city of New Mombasa goes wrong, and discover the secret behind the Covenant’s interest in the city.

The new game also introduces Firefight, a new cooperative multi-player mode where up to four players battle waves of unrelenting Covenant onslaughts. The game also introduces three new Halo 3 competitive multi-player maps and contains the complete, standalone Halo 3 multi-player experience on a second disc. It will also act as a key to entry into the “Halo: Reach” multi-player beta at a later date.
