We saw the teaser over the weekend and now it’s become a reality. Spartan Games and Microsoft have teamed up to bring the Halo Universe to the tabletop with not just space combat but also ground combat too! Best part is, it’s all coming out in 2015!!!
The Halo Universe is richly developed from its past life as a Bungie project and even now as one through 343 Studios. It’s also one of the most well loved shooter franchises out there and Master Chief himself is a massive video gaming icon on par with the likes of Mario and Sonic nowadays.
Above you can see some of the ship designs that Spartan Games have been working on for both the UNSC Human Fleet and the Covenant one. The battles in space aren’t ones that we’ve really encountered before in the Halo-verse so it will be interesting to see how they play out on the tabletop. With Firestorm Armada under their belt it’s pretty easy to see Spartan doing something great with this.
But that’s not all. As well as the spaceship battles Spartan Games are bringing you down to the installations of the Halo rings with a bump. Prepare the ODSTs and get ready for a hell dive as they’re also working on a ground combat game as well! Spartans and UNSC Marines have been mentioned in the press release but no more than that right now. We’re excited!
“All you green horns who wanted to see the Covenant up close; this is your lucky day!”
Keep your eyes peeled for future updates on this!
