E3 2008: Halo Wars ‘Five Long Years’ CG Theatrical Trailer
Looks like Halo Wars is shaping up nicely from what I can tell from the screens and the trailer. The RTS based on the Halo Universe will be released sometime in the first half of 2009 for the Xbox 360.
In Halo Wars, players will command armies of familiar and new UNSC units in its initial encounters against the Covenant during an early period of the storied “Halo” universe, allowing them to experience events leading up to the first “Halo” title for Xbox.
With the guidance of Serina, gamers will direct legions of UNSC soldiers, Warthogs and Scorpions against Covenant Grunts, Elites, Ghosts and Scarabs, each group having its own strengths and uses in battle. Strategic-minded players who react well under pressure will emerge victorious.
