Halo Wars release date pinned down

Europe gets it days ahead of US.

Microsoft has confirmed exact release dates for its 360 strategy game, Halo Wars - and the original prediction of February was only half-right.

Halo Wars will release in Japan and Asia on February 26th, in Europe on February 27th and in North and South America on March 3rd.

Pre-order the game at a participating retailer and you'll get an exclusive in-game Warthog with flame decals, whether you buy the Limited Edition or not.

You'll find more Halo Wars information, including hands-on impressions, at the Halo Wars gamepage.
