Good news! It’s not going to be costing you another $60. After the recent disappointment with Gears of War 2, I couldn’t be happier. It’s going to be adding about 3-5 hours of gameplay, but to my suprise it’s a prequel to Halo 3, at least, according to some leaked information.
If this is a prequel, it’s not the end to the Halo series. Unless this Halo Wars game for some reason ends it we are probably going to end up seeing a Halo 4! Don’t expect that until 2011 or 2012 though. They need to make this game perfect because it’ll be the first by Microsoft.
So yeah, it will release late 2009. Be sure to get the additional campaign because you can now get full recon armor by getting the vid master challenges next fall when the new campaign comes out. If you’ve been permabanned from recon it stinks to be you.
