Halo 3: Recon Details in New Game Informer

If you’re a Halo fan and a subscriber to the popular magazine Game Informer, then you’re going to be a very happy person this weekend. In the newest issue, there is a 10 page feature over Halo 3: Recon, due out in late 2009. While the article doesn’t have anything new in terms of gameplay or screenshots, it features tons of concept art, plus a few interesting details…

For one, Recon armor will be unlockable with all of the vidmaster achievements in Halo 3, so if you do those, yes, you can has. Second, Bungie doesn’t see Halo 3: Recon as a $60 game, especially considering that it’s an expansion pack that is about 5-6 hours long in terms of its single player campaign. This is exciting news, and I really wish more developers would follow suit on this.

Hopefully I’ll get my GI in the mail today or tomorrow, so I can provide some new details. Anybody else think this is cool, or are you just not that jazzed about Halo 3: Recon?

  1. Huh. Recon armor for the masses, eh? Well, soon Bungie will have to implement a new permutation to lord over the lesser beings of the internet.

    I’m mildly excited for this game. I’m a huge Halo fan, and the ODSTs are pretty kick-ass in the fiction. I’ll wait for some more details on this game to come out before I jump on the hype train.

    I still need the Vidmaster: Annual achievement…

  2. OH GOODY! Now Recon is NO LONGER SPECIAL! Its just like the Hyabusa armor! Completely un-special!

    Bad move I think. That was something they put in there so several people could have something out of the ordinary. Lame due, lame

    Keep us updated on Recon the game though.

  3. Well there you go. Bungie was right when they said “Everyone will has their chance to gets Recon.” Now, you can has it.

    Anyway, looks sweet.
