Yesterday, Microsoft released the brand new launch trailer for Halo Wars 2! Check out the new trailer below, and read on to find out more details about the game!
Here is a brief synopsis from the Xbox Wire news story – After experiencing a pyrrhic victory following the events of the first Halo Wars, Captain Cutter and the brave crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire wake up after 28 years of cryosleep to discover themselves orbiting a familiar Forerunner construct; Halo 3 fans, you know what it is. After receiving a distress signal and sending down some Spartans to investigate, the crew meets Atriox – an incredibly dangerous Brute who is as intelligent as he is strong. He poses a grave threat to humanity, and it’s up to you to stop him and his Banished.
It looks like the game will have a ton of different playing options for experienced RTS gamers as well as those (like me) who may struggle with RTS games. I love that there are a variety of modes for all gamers!
The official release date is February 21st, 2017. However, if you purchase the Ultimate Edition, you will have access on February 17th! Halo Wars 2 is a Play Anywhere title, which means one digital purchase will let you play on Xbox One or Windows 10. Retail price is $59.99.
Keep an eye on Xbox One, Beam, Twitch, Facebook Live and YouTube on Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. PST, as 343 Industries will livestream a special Launch Event! Listen to interviews from the team, see some awesome gameplay, and win prizes!
