Halo 3 Recon will be a ‘one-off’, Bungie have revealed to Gamespot.
The community leader, Brian Jarrad told the press at the Tokyo Games Show that: “Halo 3: Recon is our answer back to our fans, this is a game we felt like we needed to do. Our fans want more Halo 3 content and they want to do more in the Halo universe, and this is really our way to continue to support the Halo 3 fan base and given them something a little bit different than what they were expecting.
“In a nutshell, Halo 3 Recon is essentially an expansion, but it is also a standalone retail product. It will be sold in a box available next fall and will include hours of new campaign content, and an experience from an all new perspective. You will be playing the role of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, and the Master Chief will not be featured in this game in any way.”
Jarrad also confirmed that the expansion will support four player online co-op and will not be played in third person like some have suggested.
Bungie however stated they will not made add-ons on a regular basis for the title. They previously confirmed that the title will not be avaliable for download.
