Halo 2 to make European debut at Gamestars

Halo 2, the most eagerly awaited Xbox title of all time, will make its European debut at the Game Stars Live event at London’s docklands from the 1-5 of September.

This is major coup for Game Stars Live, Halo 2’s European unveiling is certain to prove a huge draw for the ExCel-based event, as it’s certainly the first time the European public will see the game in action. Not only that, but it takes a little shine out of the industry only ECTS event going on across London at the same time.

However, this won’t be just some static demo – no way – Game Stars Live will feature a dedicated Halo 2 area, with servers so you can sample some of that Covenant-smiting action all for yourself.

“Halo 2 is one of the most anticipated games on any console, and it’s coming only to Xbox this Christmas,” said Stephen McGill, Head of Xbox Marketing. “We’re sure its attendance will prove to be one of Game Stars Live’s busiest draws, and we look forward to proving that the relentless hype and enthusiasm from both press and public since its initial announcement is well-founded.”

But don’t take his word for it – get down there and check Halo 2 out for yourself. But don’t worry, you’ll get all the reports from us first since we have a four man Thunderbolt crew turning up for a pre-show press only preview…
