X06: Halo Wars

Some people were sad that Microsoft clamped down on a mod team creating a Command and Conquer Halo modification. Microsoft seem to have explained themselves today. Live at X06, Peter Moore announced that we are getting a Halo RTS for the 360 from Microsoft themselves.

This is pretty slick. X06 is turning into some kind of 360 fanboy fangasm of epic preportions. After an hour long spiel live video on www.xbox.com of game X and why game Y was exclusive, we got to see an amazing trailer. Of god. It told us Halo is coming, and this time it is as a hopefully well designed console RTS game that looks awesome. The trailer shows us no actual gameplay, but now we know why that Command and Conquer mod was shut down…Microsoft had the idea first. This could work so well if done properly as there has never been a very well done console RTS so if Microsoft pull this one off, they are laughing at the rest of the games market with glee. The horror.

The team working on this game is Ensemble Studios, the people who previously made the Age of Empires series and Age of Mythology. These guys know how to make a good RTS game and that’s all the more reason to get excited for Halo Wars.

We all cannot wait to see this game in action. Come on Microsoft, stop being a tease and show us the good stuff!

UPDATE: Sorry guys, seems there is no PC version coming. Our apologies.

Hopefully they use the Myth 2 camera controls because that would adapt perfectly to a console controller.

Never thought I would have to deal with the ramblings of a PC fanboy.

Fuck off and sit in your little chair at your little desk while I am comfortable on my couch playing a game that you won’t get on the PC.

If there is a PC version it will be at least 12 month after the 360 version. And will be Vista only for sure!.

And halo 2 was designed for a console not pc… auto aim makes it a more indepth experience, jumping around the map, instead of a steady hand on a mouse pointer and a up,down,left,right key!! PC is different from a console, so don’t compare….. i know plent of PC geeks would can’t hack the trash talk and fast pase of life on XBL…
