Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars was one of those things that really shouldn’t have worked. And because it was such an odd idea, it was largely ignored. It’s a pity, because it really was an excellent game that managed to successfully bring the RTS to modern consoles.

Its premise is intriguing enough that we’ll be getting a sequel. Halo Wars 2 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in February next year. Like all of Microsoft’s other games, it’ll be a Play Anywhere game, which means that you need to just buy it on Xbox One digitally, and you’ll get it for PC too – where you’ll be able to use a mouse and keyboard to play the game instead of a controller, as RTS games should be.

It follows the events of Halo 5 and will let you construct bases and amass armies of Spartan troops.

“An all-new enemy threatens the Halo universe and the only thing standing between Armageddon and humanity is the brave crew on board the Spirit of Fire.

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 ever. “

Some new campaign cutscene footage has been extricated from a recent Twitch stream from RTX, showing of some of the game’s in-between mission exposition. If you played the last Halo Wars on the Xbox 360, you’ll know that that was a particular highlight, so there’s a lot to live up to.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
