Halo 3: ODST screenshots and trailer overload!

Bungie is gearing up the promotion for Halo 3: ODST, and it’s actually looking really, really nice. Taking a step away from Master Chief to focus on this “Orbital Drop Shock Trooper” fellow makes things feel a little fresher, even though he basically looks like Master Chief anyway.

We have a hype-flavored trailer for you and a bunch of sexy screenshots. Considering the game isn’t running in HD, it’s quite an achievement to get such saucy looking graphics from the engine. Looks like Halo fans are in for a treat, and as someone who isn’t a big follower of the franchise, I must confess that I’m tempted to pick it up myself. 

Hit the jump for the video.
