AFTER being dragged into the slipstream of a spaceship your capsule has crash landed on the planet's surface.

You've lost your crack Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) squad, some of the toughest and bravest soldiers of the UNSC.

Now you must search for clues to find out what happened to your crew after the drop into the city of New Mombasa went wrong.

Then it's to detective work to drill down and decode the secret behind the Covenant's interest in the city.

Once you boot up in Halo 3: ODST, players are into a brand new, complete campaign before the game introduces a new co-op multiplayer mode called Firefight, where four players battle the Covenant onslaughts.

The game also introduces three new multiplayer Halo 3 maps and a standalone multiplayer experience on a second disc.

And for those still not convinced, Halo 3: ODST will also act as a key to entry into the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta at a later date.

After finishing the fight with Master Chief in Halo 3 players now have the opportunity to take a step back in time and experience the Halo universe from a whole new perspective.

Beginning with the original Halo: Combat Evolved for Xbox in 2001, the rich fiction of the franchise has since inspired a series of blockbuster Xbox video games, New York Times best-selling novels, comic books, action figures, apparel and more.

The franchise of games is exclusive to the Xbox 360 with more than 27 million Halo games sold worldwide.
