Not the most groundbreaking teaser... Kinda weird though. Why bring up Halo 3 all of a sudden?

this look quite interesting WALL-E in HALO UNIVERSE ?

Haha, how fun that would be!

Going around cleaning up the master chief's mess. Fun fun fun!

I'm very curious about the Halo 3 mention. Bungie already stated in recent interviews that they weren't adding in any new single player content for Halo 3. Could have something to do with the extra achievements for the next map pack but it seems bigger than that. Can't wait to find out!

its probably just a Halo 3 expansion....

It showed drop pods wiping out a human city and at the end it said "PREPARE TO DROP" so my guess would be ODSTs or something like that.

Is this correct MP4 5120x720
Commented on 2008-09-25 16:44:46
ok it is oficially a Halo 3 Expansion!

Xbox Live - "High action and deep mystery await players in this new Halo 3 campaign experience. Prepare to drop"

Ideas floating around forums?

There is a building labelled traxus in the beginning.
-The camera angles are labelled
-Tanaga
-Lumumba
-Mbaraki
-Error (also flashes Sidiriyai and Makadara)
-Sign says "evacuate city of New Mombasa"

The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

We think it might be squad based because of the references by Captain DARE.

Looks like ODST drop pods to me, and there is the "prepare to drop" reference.

Mbaraki is Mombasa, so the cameras are showing views of New Mombasa.

The space elevator is intact.

There is a huge explosion with an EMP pulse.

I think we are viewing the moment in Halo 2 where Truth engages his slipspace drive in the middle of New Mombasa, destroying the city.

Could the expansion pack be the squad based game we've been hearing about, based on ODST troops, telling the story of Halo 3 from a different viewpoint, starting with the destruction of New Mombasa?

Maddie were are you?
Who the hell is maddie??????

Yes, this is a Halo 3 expansion (not a multiplayer map), and the city is new Mombansa.

It seemes to be new DLC for the Campaign :) and thats much better than MP DLC :)

Then why would Brian Jarrad from Bungie lie about new single player content?

Jarrard: "We're always looking at ways to further expand and improve the Halo 3 experience, but there are currently no plans for an update to add new campaign content."

Perhaps it will be a standalone addon / spinoff.

In Halo 2 the tether in Mombasa was destroyed in a blueish, white energy burst / explosion when the covenant ship jumped to the other halo. Maybe you play as an ODST trying to survive the aftermath of that event.

More ideas..

Hey, there's a thought - maybe this expansion culminates in the sequence of events shown in the live action movies, i.e . ODST drop troops getting the laser marker to tag the Chief as he's falling back to Earth at the start of Halo 3 so that Johnson can find him?

So this expansion would actually tell the sequence of events that happened on Earth between the destruction of New Mombasa and the return of the Chief.

12 Secs in, you can see a Covenant Cruiser above the AMG(Mercedes) building, then it dissapears at 22sec. Then at the end of 24sec you can see that those are machines dropping from the sky. Like the ones in the Matrix. Actually they look like sperm at 25. Just black. Actually they are the drones from Ghost of Onyx.

at 44 sec in you can see the Cruiser taking up the whole skyline again, and then at 48 it's gone, after a message in frame 2 in sec 48 saying that Evacuation is complete.

it also says TANAGA - looking online TANAGA is a volcano in alaska - it did look like ash falling from the sky

Mbaraki is a medium sized naval port near mombasa

Very interesting...hopefully it's a new game and not Halo 3 related title.

My bad, just woke up, totally, forgot it had "Halo 3" in the end hahaha.

If it's Halo 3-related (which it almost certainly is judging by the trailer), you can count me out.

Not even particularly good CG to be honest. I'm disappointed. I wanted a new game, not a Halo 3 mission pack.
Commented on 2008-09-25 17:35:43
What I'm hoping for, is that it's from the perspective of the ODST's and that the gameplay changes from first to third person, like when you carry a machinegun in Halo 3.

Halo 3 Episode1 ?
If it has better graphics , some AA and more imaginative gameplay & enemy design , I am in...
Commented on 2008-09-25 17:39:52
So all this buzz and then it turns out it's a Halo 3 expansion .... what a disappointment ... DO SOMETHING NEW for goodness sake!

Because they have embargo and NDAs in effect until an agreed press time. I sure he doesn't want to lose his job. Denial is better than not saying anything at all.

Unless this updates a good deal of the already existing game, it's going to be just as stale as the other half of Halo 3
