Halo Wars art, new info in December


The Playstation 3 and Wii are launching this week, and it looks like Microsoft wants to make damned sure that players remember why they love Xbox. We're talking about Halo, of course. The above piece of concept are showed up in our inbox a few minutes ago. It's a UNSC Shortsword bomber, one of the units available in Ensemble Studios upcoming 360 RTS, Halo Wars. We went over to the official Halo Wars site just to see if anything was new. Sure enough, Ensemble has posted an update on the game's progress. In truth, the update is really just there to let us know that they plan to do monthly updates from now on. Still, Ensemble takes the time to congratulate Bungie on Halo's fifth-iversary and welcomes gamers to share their ideas for Halo Wars. If you have an idea, or just want to share your enthusiasm, head over to the Halo Wars forums -- you can also download hi-res versions of the above concept art in their image gallery. Expect a real update in December. What would you like to see in a Halo RTS?

1. I am really excited for this game. Maybe more so than for Halo 3!

2. Wow MS is firing on all cylinders...so they dont have a final date set?

3. I'm envisioning a post-PS3 media blitz by MS on all things HALO or 360 oriented. Keeping the hype ratcheted up only makes sense in order to try and draw in those who weren't able to grab a PS3 and want next-gen goodness.

4. Any information is good... however I didn't know the Spartans and the Klingons used the same ships. For the record, who is flying backwards? ;)
