During yesterday's Halo 3: ODST
panel at PAX
, Bungie made a welcome announcement for fans of the Halo 2
" campaign. Bungie's Joe Staten announced that Fourth Wall Studios
-- which is comprised of former members of "ilovebees" dev, 42 Entertainment -- will be crafting a meta-game in Halo 3: ODST
called "Sadie's Story." The meta-game tells the story of what New Mombasa was like after the Covenant attack, but before the arrival of the ODSTs. The story will follow the exploits of a New Mombasa resident, Sadie.
Staten didn't reveal many details, though he did note the involvement of Fourth Wall Studios and artist Ashley Wood
. Bungie also showed some art from "Sadie's Story," including what looked like security camera footage and the face above. The meta-game will serve as a companion to the main narrative of the game and includes an entirely new cast. Bungie's Marty O'Donnell likened it to a radio play.
Whatever it is, it certainly sounds intriguing.
