Halo Wars “Strategic Options” released today

We knew it was coming but downloadable content for Halo Wars will be available later today.

The downloadable content, known as “Strategic Options,” is the first Game Add-on for Halo Wars which introduces new ways to compete, while challenging players to rethink their battle strategies in both single and multiplayer skirmish gameplay.Strategic Options will feature three new game modes. They are:

• Keepaway Mode: In this “Halo Wars” adaptation of Capture the Flag, teams will battle it out to capture a free-roaming Forerunner Sentinel to score points before the other team. The number of Sentinels needed to win scales with the number of combatants.

• Tug of War Mode: Players must build a stronger army than their opponents to succeed. Defeating enemies is essential, but success is determined by a combination of the army, buildings and resources left standing in the end.

• Reinforcement Mode: Players must adapt their tactics and use the ever-changing set of units to outwit and outlast the enemy, all the while facing successive waves of incoming units.

The downloadable content will be available to download later today from the Xbox Live Marketplace and PC Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points.
