Halo for Vista



Halo 2, the award-winning sequel to the instant classic "Halo: Combat Evolved" to make its PC debut on the Windows Vista platform

Halo 2,the game that redefined first-person combat and multiplayer action for millions of gamers worldwide, is set to explode onto PCs exclusively for Windows Vista. "Halo 2" for Windows Vista will be developed by a dedicated Microsoft Game Studios team in partnership with Bungie Studios.

Only for Windows Vista, Halo 2 will offer gamers both the single-player campaign and multiplayer experience of the original, as well as the additional maps offered in the "Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack." Gamers will also have the exciting opportunity to build, create and customise their own multiplayer levels.

Halo: Combat Evolved and its sequel, Halo 2, have achieved phenomenal success on the Xbox video game platform as gamers around the world follow the saga of Master Chief in his battle against the Covenant forces. In 2003, the original "Halo" roared onto Windows PCs. In Halo 2 for Windows Vista, the action picks up where the first game ended. Master Chief, with the help of a small group of marines, has destroyed the religious artefact and artificial world known as Halo, and is making his way back to Earth. There, he and the last surviving Earth forces will mount a titanic struggle against the marauding Covenant enemy. To date, the Halo franchise has sold more than 14.5 million games worldwide with over 600 million hours of multiplayer action logged across Microsoft's Xbox Live

another reason not to buy it.
They should make it part of Windows Vista, like the Weezer video in Win95…

It'd be a relatively compelling reason to upgrade…
i have a question about upgrading to windows vista. will you have to wipe your HD in order to install the new OS? and does anyone know approximately when vista will be out?

thanks a bizillion and a half
I would have thought so. In fact almost certainly

Unless your sensible and have your windows on a partition and all your data on the other partition (backed-up and double backed-up of course) :)

No, you will be able to upgrade as you did with XP (which is rather neat if you ask me - i.e. that it works at all!) but i'd still recommend a clean install for sanity :)

Vista will probably make landfall late this year but the dates still aren't set. It will depend on how the beta program goes, and whether MS want a stable, complete product or a rushed one ;)
