Halo 3: Recon - New Prologue Campaign

It's official.  At the annual Tokyo Game Show yesterday, Micro$oft confirmed the new Halo 3 campaign called Recon from now free-agent .  It's unclear where exactly in the cannon timeline it takes place, but it is, at least, a prequel to the Halo 3 storyline.  To put that in perspective, the new Halo Wars RTS game takes place 20 years before the events of Halo CE.  The storyline of Recon will star not the Master Chief, but instead you will play as an ODST soldier, maybe several depending on the game play style.  ODST's or Orbital Drop Shock Troop are the bad-asses of the fictional space navy in the Halo universe and can be likened to the U.S. Marines in terms of how they are used/deployed.  During the first three Halo games they were the human marines always by your side helping you drive vehicles and such.  The only sad end to this story is that Halo 3: Recon will not be available till Fall 2009! I guess until then you will have to make due with the pics and video below.  Enjoy!
