X06: Halo Wars details
The official Halo Wars site has gone live, carrying the trailer, wallpapers, gameplay info, and a forum. The game will apparently take place before the events of Halo 1, with the player assuming control of UNSC forces in their initial encounters with the Covenant. As the story progresses, missions will escalate from skirmishes to full-scale war. Ensemble Studios refuses to say if players will have a chance to control the Convenant; if the game will have any kind of multiplayer mode though, one can practically bet on it. UPDATE: You can view the trailer below.
