Halo 3 soundtrack confirmed by Bungie

Halo 3 soundtrack confirmed by Bungie

The Halo 3 soundtrack will definitely be released commercially, while the Halo Wars RTS will see a demo available before the final game.

You probably don't need us to tell you that the release for Halo 3 and Halo Wars, the console-RTS spin-off game, is going to be one of the most anticipated events in the history of the Xbox 360, but you probably would like us to deliver the double-whammy of Halo news we have today. So, here it is.

Firstly, the Halo 3 soundtrack is confirmed to see a form of commercial release. Whether it'll be on CD or in digital download form is yet to be confirmed, but in a recent chat, Brian Jarrard and Marty O'Donnell confirmed that there will definitely be some form of Halo 3 soundtrack available.

Marty O'Donnell is hard at work as we speak working on the music for the latest Halo title, a series which nobody can deny used some beautifully orchestrated music to great effect, and when quizzed about the release of the soundtrack said simply that "It'll happen. Sure."

The other piece of exciting Halo news is regarding the RTS spin-off, Halo Wars, which is scheduled for release in 2008 on Xbox 360.

The developers at Ensemble Studios had a little chat with Joystiq and were quick to assure console gamers that the game will definitely see a demo made available for the full product was released.

Halo Wars, which is to be set in the 27 Years War which precedes the first Halo game, will be a Xbox 360 exclusive RTS - a genre which has undeniable control problems on a console. The demo of the game is meant to allay any fears which console gamers may have about how the game may play on a 360 controller.

Pissed about all these console exclusives, or simply happy that there'll be some more Halo games available? Drop your comments below.

I don't think Halo Wars will not be aimed at RTS players, rather I think it will be used as a means to get the Halo FPS players playing something different. It probably wont be able to match any RTS games we see on the PC today in terms of gameplay.

I hope its released though CD format (so I can rip it myself in FLAC), I hate using digital methods cause in the end I know I'll probably just try and torrent a copy.

I was about to say, "I expect this will be entertaining, and I'm sure it'll get a PC port at some point." But I think Jamie's spoilt it for me... :(

I'll happily be proved wrong though. I hope it's awesome.

I hope it's composed well enough to succeed the first Halo's in-game soundtrack, which, to me, is easily the best of the franchise, so far. Conversely, I don't like Halo itself all that much, not until they push the envelope and move the player's mind.
