The forthcoming Halo 3 expansion pack now has a new name.

When it was first announced at the Tokyo Game Show last month it was called Halo 3: Recon, but now it seems it's been given a new title of Halo 3: ODST.

ODST stands for Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, many of which will of course feature in the new expansion and will offer gamers a new perspective on the battle.

For those who haven't read up on the new game, it will serve as a prequel to Halo 3, where ODSTs will drop into the ruined city of New Mombassa in an attempt to uncover information about the Covenant's attack.

We still don't know when we can expect to see the expansion released, but we will of course keep you updated with any information we get.
