Halo, Gears, Forza join Eurogamer Expo

Gunstringer, Dance Central, Kinect Sports.

Platform-holder Microsoft is bringing this autumn's biggest Xbox 360 exclusives to the Eurogamer Expo 2011.

Those games are Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Forza 4, Gears of War 3, The Gunstringer, Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports 2.


Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is the sumptuous remake of Halo 1 - the game that started it all. You may remember the slogan across the back of the Eurogamer Expo 2008 t-shirts, it read, "Better than Halo". But do you know why?

Gears of War 3 was at last year's Eurogamer Expo 2011. And this year, following a delay, it's back.

Forza 4 is Turn 10's noisy new racing game. In a few short years, Forza has established itself as the Xbox answer to Gran Turismo. Eurogamer's Martin Robinson smashed down his foot on the Forza 4 pedal and found a "better, smarter game that's less sterile and much more alive".

The Gunstringer is a promising Kinect game by the maker of 'Splosion Man. Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports 2 need little introduction.

Microsoft's lusty line-up is revealed as the Eurogamer Expo 2011 sails past 25,000 ticket sales. You can't come on Saturday - there's no more room! Buy buy or bye bye.

The Eurogamer Expo 2011 bursts into life at London's Earls Court on 22nd September. And at Earl's Court we'll stay until Sunday, 25th September. Come join us - day tickets are only £10!

Halo again.
