Anticipation around the upcoming release of Halo Wars is mounting. The demo, which was released on Xbox LIVE on Feb. 5, quickly set the day-one record for the most demo downloads on the service, and in just its first five days, has been downloaded by more than 2 million Xbox LIVE Gold members around the world.
The Halo Wars demo introduces players to the game's groundbreaking control scheme through two tutorials, gives a taste of the epic story with the first two campaign missions, and allows people to experience the intense, competitive action offered via one of the game's 14 Skirmish maps. The demo is now available to Xbox LIVE Silver members.
New Halo Wars content doesn't stop there, as the third video documentary in a seven-part video series, titled "Strategy on Xbox" is now available.
