Halo Hits the Cardboard Warzone

| 3 Jul 2008 09:46

Genius Products and B1 Games are bringing Bungie's Halo franchise to the closets of gamers everywhere in the form of a board game.

Microsoft has licensed the Halo brand for a board game, yet another extension of the franchise. Players will command the UNSC Marines and Covenant forces in family friendly "strategic battles for power."

The modular board will be re-configurable to enable fresh gameplay on a new map with every match. An included DVD will feature music from the series, as well as unseen exclusive content.

This board game is heavily focused on the Campaign mode's interactive storyline, with options for quick Heroic-level matches or lengthy Legendary battles. Head-to-head matches can be played under either Slayer or Capture-the-Flag rules.

"Halo is one of the most recognizable and successful videogame franchise of all time and boasts a tremendous worldwide presence that continues to grow," said Trevor Drinkwater, President and CEO of Genius Products. "Fans of all ages are going to love this extension of the popular brand that offers endless game play. B1 Games has created an incredibly innovative game that mirrors the hit franchise and will truly resonate with fans."

Expect the Halo Interactive Strategy Game this September at retailers nationwide.
