|Seeing as it's a standalone title, I guess we can call it a sequel, though after reading through the description, it seems like more of an expansion pack. Oh well! |
This is still great news! So now there's something else, in addition to Halo 3, to look forward to this fall.
I'd like to think of what the new strategic features are, and I hope he doesn't overwhelm the game with useless units.
But the number 1 thing I hope for is CITY MAPS!!

|Yea, Dx10 would be nice, as long as he offers compatibility for us Dx9 users. |

|#3 - You're probably right about both, from what I'm gathering it's a standalone X-pack, just like Dark Crusade for Warhammer. |
I'm dying to find out what this "orbital weaponry" and new faction is all about

|This is just like Rise of Nations: Gold Ed., is either an expansion or a standalone, depending on your situation. |
