E3 2016: Halo Wars 2 Launching Feb 2017 & Beta Goes Live Today

At their E3 press conference today, Microsoft unveiled the first trailer for the highly requested sequel to the original RTS Halo spin-off, Halo Wars 2, along with a ton of exciting details.

The game will see players taking control of the Spirit of Fire army from the original Halo Wars, taking on a brand new threat to the human race. Much like it’s predecessor you will take control of iconic Halo units like Spartans & Warthogs in an all out war.

Like the rest of Microsoft’s first party line-up, Halo Wars 2 is part of the ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ program, meaning players who purchase the game for Xbox One will also have access to the Windows 10 PC version and vice-versa, complete with cross-play between the two systems and transferable cloud saves and achievements.

The game will be available on February 21st 2017, but for those that can’t wait to try it out, a beta of the game is going live today (June 14th 2016) on Xbox One and will last a whole week, so once your done reading this grab your Xbox controller and get to playing! ¬†(and read some other Rocket Chainsaw articles while you wait for the download to finish)
