Halo Wars 2 story video released from Comic-Con
343 Industries has released a new video straight from their San Diego Comic-Con panel offering fans an inside look at the development of the story for the long awaited RTS-sequel, Halo Wars 2.
After decades adrift and declared “lost with all hands,” the brave crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire are mysteriously awoken above an ancient Forerunner haven known as the Ark. In Halo Wars 2, Captain Cutter and his crew will face one of humanity’s most formidable threats yet: The Banished – a fierce and powerful Brute faction led by a cunning and lethal warrior known as Atriox.
Halo Wars 2 delivers real-time strategy at the speed of Halo combat. Get ready to lead armies of Spartans and other Halo fighting forces like Warthogs, Scorpions and exciting new units in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield yet.
Online Multiplayed for the game will also be included in addition to the campaign and will feature gamemodes like: Skirmish, test your battle strategies against a range of AI difficulty levels. Fight across all the environments and multiplayer game modes with as many AI and co-op friends (or enemies!) as each mode will allow; Strongholds, a fast-paced, timed game mode where the objective is to control more bases than your opponent when the timer stops; Domination, which offers the classic RTS gameplay of Halo Wars, now with all the new units, leaders, special abilities, and depth of Halo Wars 2. Build your base, build your army, and battle for control of the map and supremacy of the Ark; Deathmatch, where you’ll plan and build your base and army, but instead of fighting for map control you’ll fight until only one player remains standing; and Blitz, An all-new multiplayer mode that is an exciting addition to the Halo Wars series with a unique approach to RTS gameplay.
Halo Wars 2 will be released on Xbox One and PC on February 21, 2017.
