Halo Wars looks “a hell of a lot better” than it did last year

Speaking to 1UP, Ensemble lead designer Dave Pottinger has made no bones about the fact that the Halo RTS we’re going to see at E3 next week has had a major visual boost compared to the movie shown off last year.

“I think it would look a hell of a lot better,” he said when asked what the major differences between last year’s trailer and a video made today would be.

“The art’s just gone tremendously through the roof in terms of quality. The things we can do technically in the engine from a programming standpoint, and physics and whatnot, are just light years better than they were last year. The gameplay is definitely more honed – I think that would definitely come through in a gameplay video.”
