News: And the new name is...



The Halo 3 side story coming next Fall, Halo 3: Recon, has a new name. According to Bungie, the game will now be known as Halo 3: ODST. ODST stands for Orbital Drop Shock Trooper is a special forces branch of the UNSC military and have previously appeared in Halo 2, Halo 3 and the Halo novels.

For a little more about the name change, Bungie post a quick note on their official site with the reasoning behind the switch:

This new title is a more straightforward account of the experience that awaits and the role you will assume as you explore the streets of New Mombasa. But don't worry, you can still have Recon. (the armor that is, it's still tied to the Vidmaster achievements and will be accessible via the final retail release next Fall).

"ODST" (literally pronounced "Oh-Dee-Ess-Tee" and not "ohdst") is the acronym for "Orbital Drop Shock Trooper." This special forces branch of the UNSC military force is called into action for highly specialized, small scale operations. ODST units were deployed during portions of the Halo 2 and Halo 3 campaign and have also been featured in some of the Halo novels. To learn more about this elite military operation, check out this recent interview with Bungie's Halo fiction guru, Robt McLees.


We'll have more soon.
