Description[edit]

Experience Halo Wars in a whole new way with the Strategic Options Game Add-on. Three new game modes will require players to re-think their entire strategy and approach to the game. The modes include: Keepaway – capture the flag style game; Tug of War – who can field and maintain the strongest army; and Reinforcements – adapt your tactics as you are granted waves of troops.[1]

Content[edit]

  • Keepaway: Players fight for control of a flag and earn points while they control it.
  • Tug of War: Players' scores are determined by the size of their army and number and size of bases.
  • Reinforcements: Rather than training units, players' supplies are converted into unit reinforcements after a period of time.
