Update: The Halo Wars website has made a correction regarding the GamePro cover story. It turns out the story is in the July issue, not the June issue.
The latest Halo Wars
monthly update has been posted and, as usual, we're treated to a smorgasbord of information that is completely devoid of the kind of meaty details for which we so longingly hoped. There is, however, one small glimmer of hope for some new details in the near future, as the update mentions that the cover story for the
July issue of GamePro
will center on Halo Wars
. The magazine got a chance to actually play a recent build of the game, so we're hopeful that we'll finally get some concrete details about the game (preferably regarding playable Covenant and Flood ... pleeeeease!).
Also, the Halo Wars
Alpha, about which we reported
last month, has concluded and the devs at Ensemble Studios are apparently very pleased with the feedback gained from testers. According to the update, the much vaunted control scheme was well-received and testers had little difficulty in quickly understanding it. Let's hope so.
Finally, Ensemble has posted a high resolution version of one of the screenshots revealed
last week. Click the headline image above to view it in all its glory.
