Halo 3: ODST Remastered

Back in December it was announced that, as an apology for the buggy multiplayer in The Master Chief Collection, anyone who bought and played the game before 19/12/2014 would be receiving a remastered version of the Halo 3: ODST campaign free of charge, along with a remastered Halo 2 MP map, Relic.

No specific date was given, just that it would be sometime in the Spring of 2015, so it can't be too far away, fingers crossed. Unfortunately, 343 haven't confirmed whether anyone who didn't play before the above date will be able to purchase it, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't available on Xbox Marketplace at some point.

Polygon ran an article last month which showed a screenshot of the ODST campaign, and a then/now comparison of the MP map.

I remember playing ODST on the 360, and I really enjoyed it, despite not being blown away by Halo 3 initially, so I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it and blasting through it again.

Anyone else looking forward to this?

Re: Halo 3: ODST Remastered

ODST is my favorite Halo game next to Reach and the original.

I'm among those who will get the Remaster for free, and I'm looking forward to replaying the campaign in co-op yet again with the fiancé.



ETA: Almost forgot about the Relic remake. What a great, beautiful map. So hype!

Re: Halo 3: ODST Remastered

So what you're saying is Halo 3 ODST your third favourite of 6 games? I played all of the Halo games but I have to say 2, 3 and 4 where underwhelming, I did like ODST and Reach though.

I'd have to say that Reach and ODST are my two favourites by a long way.

It's more like ODST and Reach are tied for second place. The original remains unrivaled.

Boy, I'm surprised to hear the good word about ODST. I was extremely disappointed with it back in the day.

I've still not popped Reach into my 360 for a play, but I really enjoyed ODST. Not least because of absence of the Flood.

Re: Halo 3: ODST Remastered

Reach was orgasmic for me as a Halo lore fanboy. The Fall of Reach is still the best Halo novel to me*, and getting to witness part of it was pretty mindblowing.

*(caveat: I stopped reading them after the fifth? one or so)

In terms of lore and settings, The Fall of Reach probably was the best, or at least most important.

Though the recent ebook-only short novel, New Blood, was awesome. It's told in first-person POV by Nathan Fillion's character from ODST, and the rest of the surviving ODST characters feature in it too. The only bad thing that I have to say about it is that Fillion didn't read the audiobook.

That sounds awesome, I'll have to check it out.
