Microsoft has announced the release date for its soon-to-be-blockbuster game, Halo 3. The game arrives to stores in North America and Australia 25th of September, and in Europe 26th of September. The game is expected to re-write the sales records set by the sequel, Halo 2. It grossed over 125 million dollars in the first 24 hours since its release.
Halo 3 is much more than a video game release; its the biggest entertainment event of the year, said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of Microsofts Interactive Entertainment Business. On Sept. 25, we intend to deliver a finale that will go down in entertainment history and leave people around the world with an experience that will be shared and enjoyed for years to come.
Today also marks the beginning of the Halo 3 Multiplayer Public Beta. Those fortunate enough to win the special competitions arranged by European fan-sites will receive their codes today. Owners of 360-exclusive Crackdown can load their beta through the ”Downloads” menu in the game. The beta should be available from 13.00 GMT.
Gentlemen. Start your Warthogs!
