Attention RTS fans who also love Halo: It appears as if a small sliver of an update has landed across the Internet this morning for Halo Wars. According to some Ensemble Studio and Microsoft peeps, the game is playable and looking lovely (not like they'd say it sucked or anything). Here's what was said:
"We made sure we had a fairly polished build of our game ready for these folks to play, including some wicked new UI work by Ensemble Studios Artist Andy Gotcher and Programmer Billy Khan. By all accounts the Microsoft gang had a good time with the game and was quite impressed with its current state. We've got a long way to go still, but it's very encouraging when a group like this can sit down and have fun beating the hell out of each other so far from any ship date."
If you're like me (and I know you are), then you can't wait to get your hands on an RTS based on the Halo series. You better not f*ck this one up Ensemble! No pressure or anything, though.
