Bungie Countdown Expires, Teaser Video Unveiled

I don't know that I'd call a video teaser a "payoff," but hey, whatever.

Bungie's recent teasers led to a countdown timer that expired this morning, revealing... another teaser. At least this one is a video...

The video, described as "the teaser for one of our current projects," doesn't really reveal too much, focusing on a lot of the same style of messaging that was contained in the text and graphical teasers that have been on the developer's site lately. Security camera shots of a futuristic city are shown, revealing a ton of what appear to be drop pods, or perhaps bombs, as the shots of the intact city quickly give way to one that's been pretty ravaged.

Or maybe they really are all drop pods, because the trailer closes with a shot of what appears to be a pod screaming at the camera, followed by text that says "Halo 3" and "Prepare to Drop."

So we had teasers that led to a countdown... which led to a teaser? Seems pretty backwards to me. Then again, I'm not really getting much out of it at all. Halo dudes, or at least the Halo dude who posted about the video on a Bungie fansite claims that the video is "staggering" and contains "a TON of information." I respectfully disagree, but then again, I'm not really up on my Halo lore beyond "the dude in the metal armor befriended some of the bad guys and blew up the rest, then took a nap."

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough? I dunno. See for yourself and decide. The trailer can be downloaded from Bungie and will appear on Xbox Live Marketplace "shortly."

  


[UPDATE] The video is now up on Xbox Live Marketplace under the name "Halo 3: KEEP IT CLEAN." The description of the video uses the phrase "new Halo 3 campaign experience," so it sounds like this is going to be some sort of downloadable expansion for the original game.

ITS NOT HALO 3 becasue it says "trailer for our new game" but they use the HALO 3 logo in the trailer. WTF are they trying to mess with us i think so. LETS stop bitching and let a little thing called TIME play out and everything with come out!

Guessing an ODST (Orbital dropship trooper) stand-alone or expansion pack shooter for Halo 3.  I hope its at least 10 hours long.
