Halo Wars gets Strategic Options

Adds three modes, costs seven quid.

Microsoft has released the Strategic Options DLC for Halo Wars.

The pack costs 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) and adds three new modes: Keepaway, Tug of War and Reinforcement.

Keepaway is a take on Capture the Flag where players have to capture a roaming Forerunner Sentinel to score points; Tug of War totals up the the combined army, building and resources left at the end of a match to declare a winner; and Reinforcement provides varying units players must quickly adapt to and use against waves of incoming enemies.

Halo Wars is a real-time strategy spin-off made specially for Xbox 360. Head over to our Halo Wars review to see whether Master Chief would approve.
