I realize I am late to the party, but I just beat Halo 3 in co-op mode. Imagine my surprise, then, when I checked the official Co-Optimus news queue and lo and behold, there's a new video for the next Halo game, Halo Wars. The video features lots of gameplay, along with a few well done cut scenes, no stranger to the Halo saga. The developers offer their perspective on what makes Halo Wars different from the typical RTS, and some choice bits about translating one of the premiere FPS series into RTS form.
I'm leery of the controls on a console, but Nick assures me that Halo Wars will change how we look at using the controller in an RTS. The demo for Halo Wars arrives next week, February 5, to be exact. The game will be released stateside on March 3. Check out the video after the break.
