Each Halo: ODST character to have “very distinct personality”

Tuesday, 2nd December 2008 13:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt


The latest issue of gamerTM’s Halo: ODST cover brings news that, according to Bungie’s Joseph Staten, each of the game’s squad mates has a “very distinct personality,” as in they have names, faces, and so forth. No more hiding behind the green mask.

“The reason we decided to keep the rookie faceless and anonymous is to help smooth these clue-triggered transitions from one ODST to another,” said Staten.

“[The game] is designed to put you in the boots of a bunch of fun, memorable characters so you can experience this awesome pocket of Halo fiction from as many points of view as possible.”

Game’s out next year. Thanks, Kotaku.

    I don’t really care about this anyway, they’ll probably end up as military stereotypes with “amusing lines” to spout that would only amuse and entertain the most average person when very drunk (or so I would hope).

    I don’t want to see “unique characters” … unique like those seen in Crysis, Gears of War 2, and Resistance 2, what I’d really like to see them try their hand at is a really great, bookworthy plot. And that’s something they haven’t done since Marathon. :(

    Bungie, tell me this’ll have a plot half as interesting as Marathon and I may just give it a look.

    …Like every other game where you work with a single squad then… Why was this even mention worthy…?
