Firefight by the Truck Load

As the hype builds around the release of Halo 3: ODST next month, Bungie, Microsoft and GameStop have joined forces to give the screaming fans an early look at this highly anticipated release.

Over the next month a team from these companies will be travelling to select GameStop stores around the United States offering the public a chance to get their hands on the new Halo multi-player mode Firefight, before the game is available in stores. The team will be cruising round the country in a military class truck, and it’s a bloody big one.

The M820A2 truck weighs a massive thirteen tons and when fully extended is twenty seven feet long and fourteen feet wide. However, the feature that is the most interesting about the special ODST truck is what’s hidden away in the back. This beast sports eight Xbox 360 console rigs which are all packing a copy of Halo 3: ODST.

That’s not the only good news either. If you’re seventeen or older and you demonstrate your alien ass-kicking ability, you could be rewarded with a ‘Halo’ swag full of everything a gamer could ever want (well perhaps not everything).

The event started on the 22nd of August and will continue through until the 19th of September so there is still plenty of time to get to a GameStop location and check out everything the ODST Transport Vehicle has to offer.

For further information on the Halo 3: ODST transport vehicle locations and dates check out GameStop’s official schedule (http://www.gamestop.com/gs/landing/h3otour/h3o_tour.pdf) which they will update when changes are made.

  1. Isn’t this all a bit… unnecessary, I mean, don’t get me wrong, I would love it if they had this event in England or Greece but, why are they doing this?

    Halo 3: ODST is bound to sell 1 million copies quickly.

    Maybe they are just doing this for their loyal fans.

    (What I’m thinking at the moment.)

  2. It gets people excited about the game. It’s a big responsibility as a game publisher to keep excited mounted from the moment you announce the game, to the days following it’s release. Events like these are good publicity.

  3. yeah, hey what about canada! Halo doesnt like Canada?! haha, they should have made the truck look like a warthog with a trailer full of games.

  4. Heh, they don’t really do things like this anymore, but it’s gonna be a huge hit. I’d have a bash but I honestly can’t use an Xbox controller without getting a cramp somewhere. XD
