Gameplayer has gone live with an in-depth feature on Halo Wars following a visit to Ensemble Studios to see the game. Stacks of great info, quotes from the developer and a bunch of screenshots. "Can it do for RTS, what Halo did for the FPS?"
Will it copy tribes the rts, and sell 8 million copies?
Nobody's really talking about Halo Wars, now. But it will sell multi-millions. Halo fans love the Halo world, and this game shows another glimpse of that world.
That was some funny sh!t ngg. I need to start thinking like that But I'm still taking a bubble:P
is going to be awesome, especially with online play. I love RTS, I just hope that they get the control scheme down.
Keyboard and Mouse?
I seriously doubt that Halo Wars will be as successful as Halo 3. RTS games really aren't that big on consoles. The Xbox consoles sure wouldn't be anything without Halo that's for sure.... Well, here comes all the Mountain Dew Ad's and other crap again...typical Microsoft gimmicks to sell a game.
Im a Halo 3 fanboy, and im not buying this garbage.
Halo Wars will never sell like Halo 3.Microsoft doesn't expect those figures at all.But you do realize that if Halo Wars can sell over 2million copies, then it has done the deed of breaking RTS into the main stream of console owners. I have never played an RTS before apart from the C&C demo on xbox live which i played and got put off after a few minutes.So what better way of easing people into a genre than to use a game that millions of people love HALO. I am definitely looking forward to this game and if it turns out to be AAA, then all the mountain dew commercials we will be seeing will be worth it.
I have a strong feeling that this game will suck.
just like GAYLO3
and both are great games.... so I am sure it will do fine.
what's funny is that alexM used to say 'gaylo' ran at 640p. It's steadily decreasing lol. Next thing you know he'll be saying that it was 100p and ran at 1 frame per second
I am a Halo fan and an RTS fan. I played through all campaigns on C&C3 and I didn't really have a problem with the controls. Having said that, I like how they seem to have simplified the controls. I think it will also be an easier transition for Halo fans who are not originally RTS fans. Will the story come from the books? Or will this be a whole new story?
User generated content is nice addition! This game actually might turn out really good so I'm keeping my eyes open!
i never liked RTS but i got to say this one.... looks the gayest hahahahaha
Even tho Im not a halo fan (cept halo1) I really liked those screen shots, terrain looks warm and exciting. But visuals arent everything so lets hope gameplay is gonna be good. I hate playing RTS with controller so lets hope its on PC right away. mouse and hot keys are just irreplaceable. but could be fun with 46" TV, can see both bases at same time ^^
if they make it for pc im going to give it a chance, even though its a knock off futuristic version of Age Of Empires. im a fan of the ps3, but this is more of a halo game. i think their going in a slightly better direction with this 1, never liked halo or xbox, but ima be honest though, halo wars looks reasonable. if its good ,im going to stop hating on xbox
i thought Halo 3 was garbage. Ensemble Studios is not Bungie's newbies.
Gimme gimme gimme!
The people who made Age of Empires series is making Halo Wars, god Age of Empires 2 rocked and it still does. =)
make RTS go mainstream in the console market then looks like they gonna make history again. It obviously wont sell as well as Halo 3 but thats the same for all spin offs.
y did they even think of this
look at all the droid/trolls in here. PS3 COMPLETELY LACKS ANY GAMES IN THE RTS GENRE. DONT GIVE ME NONE OF THE 'RTS BELONG ON PC SH1T' PS3 HAS NOTHING AT ALL 360: COMMAND AND CONQUER 3 COMMAND AND CONQUER 3: KANES WRATH LORD OF THE RING: BATTLE FOR MIDDLE EARTH II UNIVERSE AT WAR: EARTH ASSULT BATTLE STATIONS: MIDWAY AND OTHER ARCADE GAMES WHICH ARE RTS PS3: NONE i will admit most RPG run and play better on PC. both sides agree, yes. but RTS does work and sell on 360 fact. and i am looking forward to this game.
