Hype for KZ2, Halo Wars building

Building anticipation -- or, more correctly, hype -- for big titles has never been an issue for the video-game industry.

It's a good sign, then, that we're starting to hear an awful lot about KillZone 2 for PlayStation 3 and Halo Wars for Xbox 360.

KZ2 is out Feb. 27, while Halo's next themed game hits stores the following week, March 3.

This article also includes DLC 'Magic Ball' for PS3 and 'Hockey Havoc' for both Xbox 360 and PS3 being released on Feb. 27 and March 3, respectively.

That's really good to hear that both console games are getting hyped.

jammy_703151d ago

but i dont think halo wars will get hyped half as much as what killzone 2 did

but by the end of Feb, the KZ 2 + HW combo is a nice one to have.

too bad ensamble studios is closed

It definitely is sad.

RIP some of my favorite RTS games of all time (Age of Mythology, Age of Empires)...

Hopefully Ensemble will go out knowing they made a great game, their swan song.

Follow the news a bit guys, the ensemble closure was a reorganization.
2 new studio's have been formed out of it.
One will continue doing Age of games, and the other will continue on Halo wars.

Hey thanks for that update.

No, they closed. The employees created two new studios, not Microsoft. .

One will continue doing Age of games, and the other will continue on Halo wars.

Link? If it's true that would be awesome.

Halo Wars is amazing.

i just finished the demo and i never thought it would be this good.

AngryHippo3151d ago

...I went into playing the demo not expecting much at all. It impressed me on so many levels, the controls, the story, the game play, the cut scenes, and its actually really fun to play. That is a mark of a great game.

Your not the only one that was caught by surprise. I didn't think it was possible to even like a console rts game until playing the Halo Wars demo. I'm having such a blast playing it and can't wait to hop online and battle it out in multiplayer.

after watching my friend play it for a while. I thought it looked really cool. I really didn't think this game was going to be that good. Boy was I wrong.

Kinda wish I could play it, even though I'm not an RTS fan. This game doesn't seem to have that "you have to be an RTS fan to like it" feel. if you know what I mean.

I loved the halo wars demo and i would buy halo wars on release date if microsoft didn't bring the release date of it forward to 27th of feb in the uk, same day as killzone 2, because sorry - killzone 2 takes priority!
