There have been plenty of rumours flying around recently suggesting that a new Halo 3 is to be released on the Marketplace this week. The same speculation also suggested that the trailer would reveal that a Brute will be a playable character in the game. Well in an update on Bungie’s official website, Frank O’Connor shot down/confirmed the rumours:
“The fact is, Brutes in Halo 3 will be significantly more exciting, clever, graphically impressive, terrifying, numerous and angrier than in Halo 2, but they won’t be playable, especially since you, in the role of Master Chief, will be spending a significant amount of effort and ammunition reducing their population.
“The documentary mentioned on the interwebs, does indeed exist, as I have mentioned before in previous updates. We’re keeping the exact contents as a kind of holiday surprise for the faithful, and you’ll be able to see the entire thing in 720p and surround sound some time next week. It’s a very interesting piece. especially if you’re interested in Campaign mode.
“And if you don’t have an Xbox 360, don’t panic. We love you, and we’re going to ensure that everyone gets to see it next week. Just know that the 360 version will have the best resolution for pausing, staring at something and saying, “Is that what I think it is!?” “
