Microsoft E3 2016 – Halo Wars 2

Published: June 13, 2016 3:02 PM /



At the Microsoft press conference we were given a look at Halo Wars 2. We were shown a cinematic trailer where two enemies were slowly walking through a chaotic battlefield to meet head on. Finishing with the tag line "Know Your Enemy".

Dan Ayoub then took to the stage to give some new details of the game. The Banashied will be a new faction lead by a character named Atriox. The game is set to come out February 2017 and will be Play Anywhere.

It was also announced that a week long beta on Xbox One will start now. Finishing up by showing off some gameplay for what people in the beta could expect.
