Halo ODST takes place a few weeks before the events of Halo 3. The ODST soldiers are in the City of New Mombasa, Africa where parts of Halo 2 took place in. The ODST soldiers have some new tools at their disposal that the Master Chief never got such as sound suppressed weapons and a low light vision mode to help them see in the dark. We’ll also see a brand new pistol that fans of the original Halo will really dig. ODST will also have a brand new co-op mode called Firefight. Expect Halo ODST to come out this year on September 22.
That’s all we know so far, but we should be seeing the game later this week and we’ll bring you more as soon as we get to check it out. In the mean time, check out our live blog for more on the Microsoft E3 09 press conference going on right now.
