Microsoft has aired a mouth-watering live action cinematic for Halo 3: ODST, imagining the true battlefield experiences of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper.
Hosted on IGN and on general Xbox Live release tomorrow, the one-and-a-half-minute clip follows a soldier through his gritty training and onto a planet's war-torn surface, where he comes face-to-face with the Covenant.
Rupert Sanders, director of the Halo 3 short "Believe" (the diorama), directed the piece, which was shot in Budapest, Hungary.
The cinematic will become a TV advert to promote Halo 3: ODST, which launches for Xbox 360 on 22nd September.
