Every Halo fan is going to be expect a fitting tribute to the end of the Halo trilogy. The standalone expansion to Halo 3 showcases the events leading up to the Master Chief’s return to New Mombasa in Halo 3.

While the feel of this new chapter will greatly resemble that of previous “Halo” experiences, “Halo 3: ODST" is said to require players to employ more elements of stealth and cunning than ever before. We can never get enough of Halo.
