In this first video documentary for Halo 3: ODST Gunnery Sgt. Eddie Buck introduces his (and your) team for the upcoming Bungie-developed shooter.

The video also walks us through the mission giving us a look at the new tech built into the game's characters, from weapons to electronics. We also get a taste of some of the personalities driving these new characters and plenty of in-game footage.

I like where this franchise is heading, loosening up on the whole player-as-hero feel for a lighter, more realistic future shooter.

I'm told that we can expect more of this "video documentaries" in the coming weeks leading up to the Sept. 22 launch of the Xbox 360 game.
