Halo Wars is a real-time strategy (RTS) video game for the Xbox 360 video game platform, created by Ensemble Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It was released on February 26, 2009 in Australia, February 27, 2009 in Europe, and March 3, 2009 in North America. The game takes place in the Halo series’ science fiction setting in the year 2531, 21 years before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. The player commands human warriors onboard the warship Spirit of Fire to prevent the Covenant from capturing an ancient fleet of ships.

In 2006, Halo Wars was introduced at the X06 Xbox event. Ensemble created the game, particularly for the Xbox 360 controller, to avoid the problems that plagued earlier console RTS games. Microsoft shuttered Ensemble before the game’s release, but many of Ensemble’s former workers formed Robot Entertainment, supporting Halo Wars with patches and additional content.

Halo Wars garnered mostly favourable feedback. The game’s pre-rendered cinematics, attention to detail in reproducing the Halo universe, and easy control system were all praised by critics. The lack of an option to play as the Covenant side in campaign mode and a lack of strategic choices during play were also complaints against the game. Experienced RTS gamers would find the strategic components of the game lacking, according to GameSpot and USA Today critics. Through March 2009, the game has sold one million units globally, making it the best-selling console real-time strategy game ever. In December 2016, a remastered version of the game, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, was published for Windows and Xbox One. In February 2017, 343 Industries and Creative Assembly published Halo Wars 2, Halo Wars.

Halo Wars is a real-time strategy (RTS) video game for the Xbox 360 platform, allowing players to command troops from a bird’s-eye view of the battlefield. The game is mostly focused on military warfare, but it also includes resource management and base development elements. It was created with the Xbox 360 controller in mind; the A button, for example, is used to select units. A single press picks a single unit, whereas a double tap selects all units of the same kind. The right analogue stick controls the camera angle, while the d-pad navigates to current fights and cycles among bases. The foundation is built using a radial menu.


Halo Wars includes a story-driven military campaign mode that may be played solo or collaboratively through Xbox Live. Players can battle against human or computer-controlled opponents in a plotless multiplayer game termed “skirmish mode.” The human United Nations Space Command (UNSC) may be controlled by Captain Cutter, Sergeant Forge, or Professor Anders, while the alien Covenant can be controlled by the Prophet Of Regret, the Arbiter, or the Brute Chieftain. Each faction has its own set of units, strengths, and unique abilities. Each side has three “Leaders” to choose from, each of whom permits the usage of certain units and improvements during the game. Human leaders do not appear on the battlefield as troops, but Covenant Leaders do.

A “rockpaper-scissors” mechanism is used to balance combat in Halo Wars. Ground vehicles are effective against infantry, infantry are effective against aircraft, and aircraft are effective against ground vehicles in general. Human Marines, for example, may toss grenades, while the “Warthog” vehicle can run over adversaries. Humans have access to their spacecraft, the Spirit of Fire, and its unique powers, such as the M.A.C., a formidable coilgun (Magnetic Accelerator Cannon). Covenant units are usually weaker than UNSC equivalents, although they can supplement their defences with affordable and strong protective shield generators. Players create armies by constructing and expanding bases, used to train soldiers and spend resources to upgrade and develop technology. Because each scenario or map has a finite amount of possible base sites, fortification and defence of bases is a top concern. If all of a player’s bases are destroyed, he or she is defeated unless a new base is rapidly constructed. To be vanquished, a player’s army must also be annihilated.

The resources known as “supplies” are used to train units, improve structures, and trigger special powers. Supplies can be found on the battlefield or generated by constructing supply buildings at bases. The more of these structures there are, the more supplies are produced. After reaching a particular “tech level,” various structures and improvements become accessible. The UNSC can build several reactors to reach various tech levels, with some acts needing level four; the Covenant builds a single temple that permits three tech level upgrades. There is one less tech level in the Covenant, and each upgrade is more costly. When a temple is destroyed, all technology is lost until the temple is rebuilt. Players must balance their resource buildings with other facilities, such as those needed to construct military troops, because each base has a limited amount of area. The amount of units a player may deploy is restricted, although some improvements can help them overcome this restriction.
