A sequel to the hit real-time strategy game Halo Wars from 343 Industries and Creative Assembly was announced during E3 2016. The original game came out in 2009, so fans have been anxiously awaiting the follow-up for quite some time now.
The existence of Halo Wars 2 was confirmed with a cinematic trailer, and a second trailer was also released for the multiplayer beta, which is going on right this very moment.
Head below now to watch both of the trailers.
This is a game many were clearly ecstatic about. Unfortunately I can’t share their joy, as I personally am awful at real-time strategy games and have never played Halo Wars before! That said, the cinematic trailer below is a damn fine one that’s well worth giving a watch.
Though the multiplayer trailer is going on right now, there is still a bit of a wait until the game can be yours to play. It’s currently scheduled for release on February 21, 2017.
For those interested, the song in the cinematic trailer is “I Know You” by The White Buffalo.
