...is apparently how long humanity fought the Covenant over Harvest. It is not, gratefully, the amount of time you'll have to wait for Halo Wars from Ensemble Studios to come out, since supposedly the game is now set for a release sometime in Spring 2009.

So, a little less than one... long... year.

We need to see some new faces in halo games so id like to hear names and appearencs for new characters for future halo games it would be nice to hear ur ideas :P

Since the trailer was released, the time frame of events in the upcoming Halo Wars RTS have been hot topics for discussion. Did it happen before the Halo FPS games or after? Over a long period of time, or a short one? Where did those battle rifles in the trailer come from if Halo Wars is supposed to chronicle early Human-Covenant conflicts?

Avateur in the HBO forum pointed out a Halo Wars Q&A with Ensemble Studio's Graeme Devine over at GameTap. Devine is the lead designer on Halo Wars.

In addition to mentioning how Ensemble must simultaneously respect the Halo canon and being free to make the best Halo RTS game Ensemble could make, rather than the best Halo RTS game Bungie could make, the article touches on the touchy issue of console controls:

At HaloWars.com there's a new monthly update about Halo Wars, written by Thunder. It's mostly about the game's AI:

Ultimately, the philosophy that we’ve had at Ensemble Studios is that the most fun games are when you think you might lose but don’t. The CPAI should attempt to provide the player with this challenge in each game. We want to set the difficulty levels to where most players will find a challenge, but there will be a level that can beat them if they start making mistakes.

When I was reading the book Halo: Fall of Reach it tells that there is more then one spartan and it told MC's life and subortinates.Also told how he got on the Pillar of Autumn in the first place. The game trailer for Halo Wars shows master chief leading his subortinates. After very little research I find out that they use old guns and viecles. So I think the plot might be the same thing in both the game and the book.

Major Nelson posts a note that the Halo Wars "First Look" trailer, clocking in at a tad under 500 Mb in High Definition trim, is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace:

Based on the Halo universe, Halo Wars introduces a new landmark in the strategy genre. Halo Wars places the player in command of human UNSC armies as they deploy for mankind’s initial deadly encounters with the Covenant Empire.

Kotaku has a video it calls a "guided walk" through the gameplay of Halo Wars. No word yet on whether this is the same content as the rumored XBLM video "demo" due out.

UPDATE: Ensemble Studios has put up a ten minute video on their own site; this is what they showed at E3 this year.
