After the debut of Halo 3: Recon earlier today, people were speculating about the nature of the game’s release. Is it DLC, a simple expansion, a full game?
Well, word has come down that Halo 3: Recon drops in Fall 2009 and will in fact be a standalone DVD, complete with Forge, new multiplayer maps, 4 player co-op, all the normal Halo fixes. And apparently, people (including myself) have been wrong about the idea that the game is squad based.
While the game is set to be similar to other Halo experiences, it “will require players to employ more elements of stealth and cunning than ever before”, according to Microsoft. Metal Gear Halo? We’ll see how that works out.
