US detective shows providing the inspiration behind Halo's eagerly awaited expansion...

Following last week's revelations that Halo 3: Recon would be a smaller, cheaper romp than what we traditionally expect from the series, further details on the expansion have appeared on the net courtesy of Game Informer.

Revealing the starring Orbital Drop Shock Trooper as The Rookie, players take part in a five-man squad sent into Ground Zero of New Mombassa during the events of Halo 2.  Somehow your team mates unexpectedly come upon tough times, and it's up to you to discover what happened.

Your goal within the game is to track down the four missing members of the ODST team.  Intriguingly once you've discovered one of the team mates the game triggers a flashback, in which you'll control that ODST member for the level.  Playing like a traditional Halo level, you'll eventually discover the fate of the fallen team mates and uncover the mysteries surrounding New Mombassa - perhaps even answering, "What on earth happened to all the cut Halo 2 content?"

Of course not having the physique or dual-wielding skills of a Spartan, you do at least get your hands on some new equipment, including a PDA to place waypoints on a map and allegedly a free-roam city to explore, whilst the all-new 'Visual Mode' allows you to visualise opponents with a surrounding glow depicting their location.

Bungie openly describes the experience as, "just like any detective show, Cold Case or Law and Order or whatever, where a detective can arrive at a crime scene, look at the chalk drawings and bullet holes and see what's going on."

Just one more thing... will The Rookie be switching Mjolinir armour for a a trenchcoat to help with these investigations.
