The official Halo Wars trailer and Web site have now gone live. The site includes the trailer, some kick-ass images (translation: cool new wallpaper for me), an FAQ, and forums. Here are some of the highlights we can expect in Halo Wars:
• Halo Wars takes place before Halo 1 during the UNSC’s first deadly encounters with the Covenant.
• Players will lead the crew of the UNSC’s "Spirit of Fire" from initial skirmishes to an all out war against the evil Covenant.
• Trailer pre-rendered?: Yes, and it's based around our world concepts and uses lots of ingame models. Props to our friends at Blur for bringing it all together and making it really shine.
• Halo Wars was created for the Xbox 360 from the ground up, which meant we didn't have to make compromises or shoe-horn in artifacts from a Windows PC game. We were able to take all the best aspects of RTS games, make them work perfectly on the Xbox 360, and exclude the rest.
God I can't wait for this game. Check out the wallpapers here.
