While most companies wind down and don’t release much new information about their upcoming games the last couple weeks of December Bungie decided to buck that trend and release a lot of concept art for Halo 3 expansion ‘Halo 3: ODST’. Being a long time fan of the Halo series the first thing that caught my eye were the weapons. It looks like Halo : ODST will be adding some new weapons to the standard ones that Master Chief had in the previous Halo games.
A silenced SMG points to Halo 3: ODST having a slightly different play style than the previous Halo games where all the weapons were focused on maximizing damage and not stealth. I guess that makes sense since Halo 3: ODST will be the first Halo game where you don’t play as Master Chief. Instead you’ll play as an Orbital Drop Ship Trooper. While the ODSTs are well trained and equipped they don’t have the augmented physique and armor of the Spartans like Master Chief.
Here are more of the concept art that Bungie released. I’m sure they have more hidden gems in their that I’ve not found yet so I’m looking forward to everyone’s analysis of them.
