Halo 3: ODST is prepared to drop on 09/22/09. Pre-order your copy from select participating retailers and you’ll receive a token to unlock Sgt. Johnson for use in the all new cooperative mode, Firefight.

Participating major retailers in the United States include Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop and Wal-Mart. And of course this offer will also be available outside of North America as well. Here's a list of initial retailers who are part of the Johnson program abroad:

  • France: GAME, FNAC, JV&Co, Virgin, Amazon, Pixmania, Cdiscount, Rue du Commerce
  • Germany: Amazon and Gamestop
  • Italy: Gamestop
  • UK: Game, Gamestation, Amazon, Play

If we get more information on additional retailers, we will make sure to pass it along. In the meantime, check with your favorite game store to make sure they’ve got Johnson in-hand before you plunk down your hard-earned dough.

Sergeant Avery Junior Johnson is a tough as nails career Marine that has been in more life or death battles than you've had hot meals. He has survived more infectious Flood outbreaks, greased more Covenant bad guys, and kicked more ass than any other twenty soldiers. And now you get to walk a mile in his shoes.

For more information about this pre-order bonus and for extensive Halo 3: ODST coverage, check out the Project Page and Field Guide right here on

If you're still looking for more information, keep scrolling to find a trio of Halo 3: ODST screenshots featuring the man himself, Sgt. Johnson, tearing it up in Firefight alongside a squad of ODST's.

Go! Go! Go! The Corps ain't payin' us by the hour!

One down, fifty billion to go.

Don't make me take off my belt!

Looks like ubald unleashed another render over at HBO. This one's a WIP and part of a much larger collection that will ultimately serve as a webcomic. But you should check it out now.
