The October issue of Gamepro featured a new gaming preview on the imminent and final installment in the Halo game franchise, Halo Wars. This will be new territory for fans, switching the game-play from a first person shooter to a real-time-strategy game.
While Halo 3 is where everything ends, Halo Wars will be where it all begins in the game that fleshes out the origins of Halo-verse. According to the article written by Tenacious Moses, "All vehicles and soldiers are playable, making the game truly authentic to the Halo franchise. " In addition, the game will have a much quicker and realistic feel closer to the other Halo titles; moreso than most RTS type games. The controls will follow a simple system using only the left analog stick and the face buttons of the controller.
