Bungie Confirms Four Player Halo 3 Online Co-Op

Halo fans rejoice! Bungie, maker of Halo 3, one of the most anticipated games for Microsoft's Xbox360, has just confirmed today that Halo 3 will have a not two, not three, but four person co-op in campaign mode, either through System Link or over Xbox Live. The addition of a four man team promises to open up heretofore unavailable strategies, resulting in endless possible tactical scenarios, according to the announcement. In addition to the Legendary difficulty mode, developers promise to reveal "more ways to make the game more interesting and challenging for multiple players in the very near future." While split-screen co-op is still limited to only two players, two split screen games can link up to form the aforementioned four person game.

For fictional reasons, Bungie has decided to forgo the traditional compromise of multiple Master Chief characters; while the first play still controls the Chief, the second player will control the Arbiter, and the third and fourth spots will be filled by two totally new characters: N'tho 'Sraom and Usze 'Taham, both Elites. While cosmetically the players may look different, all characters will have the exact same abilities as each other.

So while playing co-op, since only one person looks like Master Chief and the others look like Covenant forces, I foresee a lot of friendly fire occurring because of confusion. Awesome.
