The Halo Wars sampler offers a beginner and an advanced tutorial, as well as the first two single-player campaign missions. Gamers can also get a jump on honing their competitive techniques, taking on a computer-controlled opponent on the Chasms multiplayer map in skirmish mode. The demo is now available to all Xbox Live members, having initially been released for just paying Gold subscribers.

Halo Wars is slated for release exclusively for the Xbox 360 on March 3. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
