Halo has and probably always will be a staple of the Xbox gaming community having been around as long as the platform itself, it’s hard to imagine an Xbox generation not having the ability to play a Halo game. Halo started as little more than a neatly packed trilogy ending in 2007 but since then it has exploded into a universe of diverse story telling in the form of novels, secret websites and even new games. Halo Wars (Released February 2009) was the first game to show us a taste of the new and improved Haloverse that was to come, no longer … Read More »

Since the last of the planned Halo 5: Guardians updates – Firefight – things have been pretty quiet on the Halo 5 front, with attention shifting to Halo Wars 2. Quiet, but not silent. We can still expect more content for Halo 5, and this week’s Community Update sheds a little light on what we can expect. First up is Halo 5 Forge for Windows 10, which will bring the much vaunted creation tool to Windows PCs for the first time. We admit we love Forge but we just can’t seem to find the time to tinker with it, so … Read More »

Today has seen quite a lot of information released onto the world wide web regarding the development status of Halo Wars 2. The update came from Dan Ayoub, Studio Head of Strategy Games, 343 Industries. In a post on the official Halo Waypoint website Ayoub stressed that the studio have been working hard to rectify and fine tune some of the issues brought to their attention during the BETA stage a couple of months ago. One of the biggest problems the game faced during its BETA stage was the plague of connectivity and de-synch issues. The Head of Strategy Games at 343 … Read More »

Gamescom 2015 was a big deal for Microsoft and Xbox – the premiere European event of the season showcased “the greatest games lineup in Xbox history” and the 90 minute briefing was jam-packed with Xbox goodness. Xbox supremo Phil Spencer has confirmed there’ll be no similar briefing at Gamescom (Cologne, Germany, 17-21 August) this year – but there will be a Sea-of-Thieves-galleon-sized boatload of games to play, including Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2, ReCore, We Happy Few, Everspace, and Cuphead. With six stands across three areas and two halls, Microsoft’s presence will be anything but low key. Mr … Read More »

The universe of Halo is huge and ever-expanding, and we await each new reveal with the same wonderment that we felt stepping out of that crashed pod on Installation 4 way back in Halo: Combat Evolved. So the publication of a Halo Wars 2 vidoc that explores the setting and character of Halo Wars 2 – due out February 2017 for Xbox and Windows 10 PC – is not to be missed. This vidoc expands on what you might have seen in the trailers, and builds on what we learned in the recent Halo Wars 2 Beta. And it gives us … Read More »

Thinking. Let’s be honest – it’s not everyone’s strong suit. You, though. You look like an intelligent, thoughtful person (unless you are, you know, the presumptive Republican nominee) and I just bet you love a bit of strategic thinking. We do, too. So here are five quite brilliant Xbox One strategy games that’ll work the old grey matter more than the trigger finger. 5. The Living Dungeon There’s something comforting about a board game. Whether it’s harking back to a childhood we never fully embraced, a yearning for simpler times, or just an excuse to hang out with friends, board … Read More »

Halo Wars 2 is slated for a February 2017 launch, and Microsoft has confirmed there will be another Beta opportunity close to this date. While last week’s Beta was for Xbox One owners only, this new Beta will give Windows 10 players a chance to get in on the action too – Halo Wars 2 is already confirmed as an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Buying the title digitally on either platform will net you the game on both. Quick reminder – this is cross-buy, not cross play – it’s already been confirmed that Halo Wars 2 won’t support cross-platform play. Microsoft … Read More »

Halo Wars 2 when it was first announced was received positively by most, since then the Beta has been doing very well. Even more good news for you lucky gamers, the Beta has been extended for another day so the team can roll out some extra fix’s ready for the game’s release this year. Hey!

Warzone Firefight is the next – and much anticipated – update for Halo 5: Guardians, bringing back the much-loved co-operative mode that debuted in Halo: ODST. Although still a few weeks away, April’s Beta showed the mode was in good shape and will likely be a fantastic addition to one of Xbox One’s best multiplayer titles. The update will bring the Firefight mode, some improvements and additions to Forge, a refresh of the main Warzone mode that we covered a couple of weeks ago, and a handful of new maps. In fact, this week’s Community Update from 343 Industries explains that a … Read More »
