While Microsoft’s Press Conference failed to provide us with any Bungie or Halo related announcements (looks like we’ll have to wait until Wednesday morning for that), the guys over at Ensemble Studios have posted a brand new cinematic trailer for the forthcoming RTS, Halo Wars.
Entitled ‘Five Long Years’ the entirely pre-rendered trailer gives a short minute-and-half glimpse of the five year struggle faced by the UNSC as they battle the Covenant for the first time, and sets up more of the overall Halo Wars narrative.
Though they may not reveal all that much about the game, the Halo Wars trailers thus far have been nothing short of spectacular – delivering hefty amounts of emotional grit, whilst fleshing out the Halo universe. If nothing else, they showcase even further the massive potential for a big budget Halo movie. Bungie, Microsoft, Peter Jackson, whoever… you have got to make this happen.
An updated FAQ lets slip news that the Covenant are indeed playable in the game and we can expect a full retail release sometime during Spring 2009!
