Genius Products and B1 Games today announced that the first-ever board game based on the Halo franchise - Halo Interactive Strategy Game - has shipped to retail outlets nationwide.
Featuring a modular board that can be reconfigured and original characters from the Halo video game, as well as new characters - including Kusunagi and The Prophet of Candor - the Halo Interactive Strategy Game pulls fan-favorite elements from Halo, Halo 2, and Halo 3 along with music from the video game's award-winning soundtrack. Additionally, the game features unseen exclusive DVD content to enhance game play.
In the game, players will command armies of three-dimensional collectible character pieces for multiple levels of play: Heroic for faster, more casual game play and Legendary for more strategic advanced gamers. Fans can follow storylines that expand the Halo experience in Campaign mode or go head-to-head in interactive battle sequences with Slayer or Capture the Flag modes. The battle options are endless with future add-ons of new adventures, vehicles, characters and weapons to expand the experience.
The Halo Interactive Strategy Game is suitable for ages 10+ and will be available at retailers nationwide.
