Halo Wars Demo
February 5th at 2 a.m. PST; the public will finally see what Halo Wars is all about. A demo will be available to public in all Xbox Live regions worldwide.
Halo Wars is the newest in the line of Halo games, with a slight twist. Halo Wars is a real-time strategy game which will allow users to control and direct large armies in realistic warfare. Players can choose between the UNSC and the Convenant and will recognize the units and vehicles from the original FPS.
The game was built for the Xbox 360 so all controls are tailored for use with the Xbox controller.
In the demo, players will be able master the control scheme in optional beginner and advanced tutorials or jump right into the action. Players will be able to go through the first two campaign missions or play the multiplayer map "Chasms" (one of the 14) in Skirmish mode vs. A.I., playing either as the UNSC with Captain Cutter’s leader powers, or as the Covenant with the Prophet of Regret’s abilities.
Halo Wars is under development by Ensemble Studios (the developers of Age of Empires).
