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 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 »

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.
