Two new playable characters in Halo 3 Co-op. Yes!

h3thumbThere’s more good news coming to Halo 3 fans in addition to co-op online…Bungie announced that there will be two new playable characters too. The first two slots are occupied by Master Chief and Arbiter, of course. But slots three and four will offer the new additions.

Bungie’s website stated:

"For fictional reasons, we decided to avoid Halo’s slightly surreal compromise of two identical Master Chiefs and rather, use this opportunity to expand the Halo universe just a little bit. Player one will control the Master Chief, player two will control the Arbiter and players three and four will get the chance to control two brand new Elite characters."

(Spoiler coming) The third character in online play is N’thro ‘Sraom and "…is the youngest member of his Special Operations unit and is one of a growing number of human sympathizers amongst the Sangheili youth…"

The number four slot goes to Usze ‘Taham. (Why do all the alien guys always have an apostrophe in their names anyway?) He is described thusly, "…after receiving his first post within the Covenant Navy he was offered a place on the Prophets’ Honor Guard but he declined citing ‘lack of practical experience.’ In truth, he had no desire to be part of a largely ceremonial unit…"

So get ready to rumble. Personally, I want to be the Arbiter when I get on Co-op.
