Halo ODST video gives details on Firefight


1:40 PM on 08.27.2009



Halo 3: ODST drops in just under a month from now, forcing Microsoft's hand in finally beginning to promote and hype this thing up. Seriously, what makes these people think that they can wait until the last possible minute to start getting people interested in a title? Why, you'd think they would have been releasing footage and creating teaser websites a year ago if they wanted us to be sufficiently prepared for its release.

Lack of marketing aside, the upcoming expansion for teh Haloez looks pretty sharp. In a video released by Microsoft today, there's some in-depth description of the new "Firefight" multiplayer mode. It looks like some kind of "survival" test where you face off against a "horde" of enemies in increasingly more difficult waves. And you can turn skulls on and off to adjust the difficulty.

At the end, the video mentions the previously announced pre-order bonus of a playable Sgt. Johnson character. It's also reasonably funny. You can check it out for yourself by following the lovely link below.
