Step back Chief, Halo 3: Recon announced

Straight out of Microsoft's keynote address at the Tokyo Game Show comes confirmation of the new Halo 3 campaign that has been the subject of much speculation of late. The prologue, Halo 3: Recon, will cast new recruits in the steel-tipped boots of an ODST recon marine, giving series vet Master Chief a long-deserved breather when the addition rolls onto the front lines a bit later than expected in fall 2009.

Update: The trailer is here -- and more details here.
