Halo: Flashpoint Miniatures Game Trailer Teased By Mantic Games

05 March 2024
Halo, the video game franchise that was a system seller alone, is getting the tabletop treatment from Mantic Games, and we're finally getting more details about it, with the release of a brand new trailer. Halo: Flashpoint is coming to retail in September 2024, and will be a skirmish miniatures game.

Halo Board Game?

Back in January, Mantic Games announced they were partnering with 343 Industries to bring Halo to the tabletop, as a miniatures combat game, to much acclaim. The Halo series of games are a real time strategy, first person shooter game, originally exclusive to Xbox. Developed by Bungie originally, and now managed and developed by 343 Industries, it spawned numerous additional games, as well as books, live-action series and films, and animated series, and has become a classic symbol of video gaming. As more and more video game franchises make their way to our tabletops, it's perhaps no surprise Halo was a contender.

Halo: Flashpoint

The new trailer for Halo: Flashpoint was revealed, alongside new information. You can see the trailer below: 


The trailer shows the characters within the video games, and the miniatures that have been made alongside them, in fighting scenarios. 

The game has promised to be first time gamer friendly – likely to appeal those who love Halo, but perhaps haven't played a miniatures game before – and will include pre assembled plastic miniatures in 40mm, and pre coloured and easy to assemble terrain. You'll be taking command of Spartan fireteams that clash against each other, using combat tactics and weapons from the Halo Universe. 

“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with 343 Industries on bringing Halo to tabletops everywhere”, said Ronnie Renton, CEO and founder of Mantic Games. “Having a firefight play out on the table while moving Spartans in and out of cover connects players to the action in a new and special way. We have a thrilling and competitive game, from a passionate team of talented sculptors, artists, and designers who have been building an incredible Halo experience.”

A first reveal of the game in person will take place at Adepticon

Mantic Games

Mantic Games are leading the creation of Halo Flashpoint, but have extraordinary form for previous miniatures. such as Firefight, Deadzone, Armada, and Kings of War. They've also worked with previous licenses on adaptations of the likes of Hellboy, The Walking Dead, Mars Attacks, the Umbrella Academy, Invincible, and are currently developing Worms: The Board Game.
