    To the delight of devoted fans across the world, at the Tokyo Game Show Microsoft debuted Halo 3: Recon, developed exclusively for Xbox 360® by acclaimed developer Bungie. This new chapter in the Halo saga lets you experience events leading up to the epic story told in Halo 3 through the eyes of a new hero in the Halo universe.

    The stand-alone expansion, set to release in fall 2009, extends the award-winning Halo® 3 experience with hours of new campaign excursions and multiplayer gameplay.

    This new chapter in the Halo universe includes the following:

    * All-new campaign content: The Halo 3: Recon campaign is an intriguing side story that takes place during the terrifying events leading up to the Master Chief’s return to New Mombasa in Halo 3. Experience the fate of Earth from the brand-new perspective of a special forces ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper), adding a unique outlook and new gameplay elements to the events that unfold in the trilogy’s finale. While the feel of this new chapter greatly resembles that of previous Halo experiences, Halo 3: Recon will require you to employ more elements of stealth and cunning than ever before.
    * Prepare to drop: Known for their courage, valor and, at times, insanity, ODSTs are among the fiercest UNSC soldiers, priding themselves on being the first unit deployed into hostile situations. While not as large or supernaturally gifted as their Spartan comrades, these "Hell Jumpers" more than compensate with their ferocious attitudes and unwavering nerve.
    * Expanded multiplayer collection:No Halo experience would be complete without groundbreaking multiplayer content, and Halo 3: Recon gives fans more of what they love. With exclusive new maps and expanded Forge options, Xbox LIVE® Gold members will find more multiplayer content than ever before with Halo 3: Recon.
    * Ever-growing community options: Enjoy all the great Halo 3 technological innovations, including Saved Films, screenshots, Campaign Scoring, and four-player co-op. All of the new multiplayer maps fully support the Forge editor, offering endless gameplay customization possibilities.

    It's going to be real interesting to see how this plays. I mean, this guy is going to be weaker with no regenerating shield or high jump. The art style looks more realistic and gritty. I wonder if the multiplayer component will follow suit. Will it play like Rainbow 6?

    This 1up article seems to confirm a few things:

    - Recon will be sold as a standalone retail product in a box.
    - Hours of new single player content
    - Contains new multiplayer content as well as the Mythic map pack
    - The mythic map pack will be released early 2009 for Halo 3 owners
    - First person, not squad based
    - Takes place during the Halo 2 sequence where the Prophet of Regret and Master Chief leave Earth for Delta Halo
    - The hero is a lone soldier in a covenant occupied city, but he is not a one-man-army like Master Chief -- he is fragile and vulnerable.
    - Still contains Halo's high octane combat, but you'll have to rethink how you move around the environment. This is no Splinter Cell, but you'll certainly have to be more careful.
    - In regards to story, it will fill in some nooks and crannies, but it's pretty much a tangent from the overall story
    - A different take on the Halo universe
    - The game contains the full 1000 gamerpoints, hinting at the size and scope of the game.

    This is beginning to sound less of an expansion and more of a whole other game that takes place in this Universe. Obviously it won't have as much content as, say, Halo 3 did upon launch, but this sounds like it'll be just as big as other full-size games on the market.
