As far as i know its xbox360 only, no pc version. The Faq on halowars.com states:
Q: Will I be able to play Halo Wars on Xbox 360 and PC?
A: Halo Wars is for the Xbox 360 exclusively.

So its probably not only "as far as i know" but more like "its definatley only coming to 360" ;)

The little bit of info given sounds promising. I say late 07 or 08 for a release. Which sucks.

Dave Luehmann: I don’t think we’ve made any promises on that…

hmmm i wouldnt doubt it.


i hope they dont botch something simple like the ZOMG ultra close camera zoom in LOTR:BFME2. either way, this looks promising. new halo gameplay can only be a good thing. ensemble has a good track record. they sure have a lot of work ahead of them if they plan on competing with Westwood's true, and only worthy sequel to, the original command and conquer which will dominate all that is the RTS genre.

If the trailer is any indication what-so-ever, this game is going to pwn.

Heh, i want more info, yet i don't want to ruin the experience for myself. Oh, the indecision.

I'm pretty sure Halo 3 will come out first. Frankie said they were going to stagger the releases to not overdo the Halo thing and wear it out. Since Halo 3 is coming out next November, the only feasible date for this would be March 2007 if they were going to stagger it. That's much too soon, there's no way this game is that far along? So look for Halo 3 first.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. pretty quick impressions. But even if the second area is a better stealth game.. I can't shake the feeling that Far Cry did a lot of the same things better. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wildlands doesn't really appear to benefit much for its open world. It's huge and it's gorgeous but the poor driving and lack of interesting attractions do all of that space no favors. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker As for Wildlands, this guy explains perfectly what is wrong with it and I agree. [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Im trying to think what recent open world game gave you more big mechanics after halfway through (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Its not necessarily adding more of them but spreading them out better. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker will explore through and through. In most games it's just not worth it at all. (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 With Zelda for example the amount of system /mechanics is staggering but if you dont get any new one after halfway through the game then its a problem. Not saying that the case for Botw (2 Hours ago)
