Halo Wars 2 has been in the news for quite a while and now. Microsoft had earlier dismissed the rumours of the game getting released on the market in Fall 2016 of Windows 10 as they confirmed that the official release of the game is going to be in the month of February in the upcoming year, February 21, 2017, to be precise. And as we lead up to that lots of news are coming in before the official release of the game.
As the Game N’ Guide reports, the new game Halo Wars 2 is going to have new stories, modes and new characters added to the roster. It is expected that the new game is going to make a start where it left off in the Halo 5: Guardians. The encounter begins when the 28-year old deep slumber of the crew breaks in an unknown place.
Regarding the addition of the number of characters, it can be said that this will be a comeback venture for two of the older characters. Cutter and Anders will be making a comeback from Halo Wars with few changes in their character design and technical aspects. Then there is Atriox, who will be leading the mercenary group Banished. This is also going to be one of the new additions. It is believed that the inclusion of Atriox will bring in some fierce encounters and engage the use of some classic weapons which are also touted to be effective.
Besides these new additions to the list of characters, the upcoming Halo Wars 2 is also going to have new multiplayer modes. The most exciting one, as it seems now, is the ‘Strongholds’ which will have a time limit while playing in multiplayer mode. So the players will have to be vigilant as the time will tick on and take actions accordingly. Also, another mode of the multiplayer in Halo Wars 2 is going to be Blitz which uses a real-time strategy in some unique manner. Other multiplayer modes which have come in have been discussed in details in the official website of Halo Wars 2.
As it seems now, it is going to be really intriguing when this game finally gets official on February 21, next year. And as long as the day doesn’t arrive, fans will have to remain faithful on the news and updates from the reliable sources. But it can besaid that it’s worth waiting, especially with all these new inclusions. The game Halo Wars 2 is made available on Xbox One and PC platforms.
