fans rejoice, for Red Vs. Blue
shall live again! Microsoft has announced
that a series of 5 special episodes of Red Vs. Blue
will be released in anticipation of a relatively unpublicized game called Halo 3
. As many still lament the end of The Blood Gulch Chronicles
, these new episodes should be a cause for (tactful) celebration. The promotional episodes will feature Sarge preparing the rest of the soldiers for the transition from Halo 2
to Halo 3
. We're not sure what exactly that will entail, but we can only assume antics
will be involved. And shenanigans too.
One interesting (and possibly disturbing) note: the episodes will be appearing at several retailers including GameStop, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Circuit City, and Best Buy. Considering there is no mention of the episodes appearing on Marketplace
, this leads us to believe they may not be free. Here's hoping our hunch is wrong.
