Halo 3 Co-Op Characters

We all knew that Bungie aims to please. It just comes with the territory – if you had the number one selling franchise on a given console, you’d aim to please as well! Well, they took their urge to please a couple steps further…

Earlier today, it was announced that Halo 3 would have four-player co-operative play over Xbox Live. Having heard that, players could understandably assume that the multiplayer would resemble Halo and Halo 2’s co-op campaign with each player controlling a Spartan. They’d be wrong, though.

Bungie’s gone the extra mile and given each player a different character! Player one will be the Master Chief, of course, but player two controls the Arbiter and players three and four control Elites that you likely haven’t heard of…

Players three and four control Sangheili (Elites) named N’Tho ‘Sraom and Usze ‘Taham, respectively. This is definitely a bit unexpected, but it leads toward the conclusion that at least some of the Elites — technically the second most powerful race in the Covenant that we know of, only behind the Brutes — aren’t too happy with the way the prohets are handling things.

Before you start to think that Elites have the advantage though, Bungie has this to say in their latest news release:

Every player will have identical abilities – only their appearance and weapon starts are different (Elites will start with Carbines versus Battle Rifles for example, depending on the mission). So there you have it. Mystery solved. Internet dramas ended. Four player online co-op it is. And a special thanks to the test, engineering, production and design teams who worked incredibly hard to make this feature happen.

Thanks to those teams, indeed. It’s going to be a long wait until September 30th!
