    Following the cancelled launch, details of the secretive Halo project have been released. The highly speculated on Halo project has finally been officially confirmed as titled Halo 3: Recon. Bungie had previously released a short teaser video showing an attack on a human world, with drop pods also speeding towards the ground from the atmosphere above. Today Bungie expanded on this by releasing a new video which is essentially an extended version of this teaser, showing new footage of the game's protagonist and a number of the enemy "brute" soldiers on the ground.

    This standalone campaign expansion pack for the highly acclaimed Halo 3 game is set in the events preceding Halo 3, with the player taking on the role of a human character other than Master Chief for the first time in the Halo series. As highly speculated, the player will take control of a UNSC ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper,) also known as 'Hell Jumpers'. In the Halo universe, these troops are dropped from orbit in a specially built drop pods as a means of putting foot soldiers on the ground quickly and efficiently.

    Halo 3: Recon is currently scheduled to ship sometime in Fall of next year, and the trailer ends by stating "New Hero, New Campaign." The boxart for the game also reveals that it includes a number of multiplayer maps

    You can view the trailer by visiting the Bungie site here, where it is available as a wmv or quicktime movie in a range of sizes.
