During tonight’s “The Game Awards”, 343 Industries (Halo series) showed off a new trailer for Halo Wars 2. This trailer presents a new villain: Atriox. He’s so bad-ass that even the Covenant want him dead.
Here’s the trailer:
Along with the trailer, 343 revealed the real news that early access to the Halo Wars: Definitive Edition would come to anyone that preorders the digital version of Halo Wars 2. This is a more optimized and complete version of the original Halo Wars, which was only ever on Xbox 360 prior. This time, it comes to both Xbox One AND Windows 10 PCs on December 20th for the early access.
The original Halo Wars was unique in that it was designed from the ground up to be played on a console controller, without the usual red tape of tons of hot keys, macros, and needs involved in contemporary real time strategy games. It’s great to see it back in action.
No word yet on when Halo Wars: Definitive Edition officially comes out outside of the Halo Wars 2 early access, but if you were planning on getting Halo Wars 2, might as well take advantage of the free game.
