Synopsis / Summary

It is 2555, more than two years after the Master Chief went missing-in-action following a decisive conflict on Installation 00 – the massive, extragalactic Forerunner construct known as the Ark – as part of the final chapter in humanity’s bloody thirty-year struggle against the overwhelming forces of the Covenant. Now, as a tenuous peace exists between the humans and the Elites, a startling scientific discovery is made… and the riddle behind its Forerunner origins could very well seal the fate of the entire galaxy within a matter of weeks. In order to unravel these dangerous secrets, a heroic, hastily formed coalition of humans and Elites must attempt to overcome their differences as they embark on a covert mission back to the Ark—an astonishing, enigmatic place beyond comprehension from which few have returned and where mortal danger awaits them all.

ODST

Earlier in the week we reported that the Halo 3: ODST release date had been accidentally revealed by Xbox.com only to be quashed by 343 Industries, well the very next day after the ‘release date’ eligible players started to receive codes for the game!

The Halo 3: ODST campaign will be free to players who logged in to their Xbox Live account and played Halo: The Master Chief Collection between Nov. 11, 2014 and Dec. 19, 2014.

Otherwise it’s available for the outrageous price of £3.99/$4.99.

The update to the game also includes access to Remnant, a re-imagined version of the Halo 2 multiplayer map, which is free for all.

Earlier on today you may have notice that Xbox.com was playing games with us all by revealing that the Halo 3: ODST remaster was due to be released this Friday.

— Halo (@Halo) May 27, 2015

We continue final testing and will make an official announcement once our release date is determined, and apologize for any confusion. (2/2)

— Halo (@Halo) May 27, 2015

The game is being offered as a free download to all Master Chief Collection players who bought and played the game between launch and December 19 – where frankly the game just failed to work outside of single-player.

As soon as we get a proper release date we’ll let you know.
