Lest you forget that Halo is a big deal — and that the series turns 10 this year — Microsoft is ready to remind you. A raft of Halo news hit this morning, including a promise of a Friday upgrade to the Xbox 360's Halo Waypoint and a tease of some big things in August. Plus... a cute 'lil Flood pet!
The current home of all things Halo, 343 Industries, is working with Powerhouse Animation Studios—responsible for the animation in Risk: Factions—on a new, ongoing Halo-themed animated series dubbed Apt. 117. Maybe you'll think it's funny?
The hub for all things Halo is live on my Xbox 360 (and yours if you have the dashboard update preview). I'm a Level 19 Halo user, it seems. Check out my video tour, which starts with... Avatar Awards.
What started conceptually as a hub for Halo content on the Xbox 360 may develop into something more, the creative director for the new Halo Waypoint Xbox destination told Kotaku.
Microsoft has released a new trailer and screenshots showcasing the Career Mode of Halo Waypoint, Xbox Live's destination for everything Halo related, launching on November 5th for Xbox Live Gold and Silver subscribers.
Microsoft's announcement of Halo Waypoint, the Halo "destination" coming to Xbox Live this Fall, was light on details, overshadowed by the reveal of the Halo Legends anime series. Fortunately, 343 Industries' Frank O'Connor was at Comic-Con to clear things up.
Microsoft has more than just Halo 3 ODST to whip the Halo fanbase into a lather this fall. It's also launching the Halo Waypoint on Xbox Live, a "destination" for fans of Bungie's space marine creation.
