Halo Wars 2: There was a theory from the players that real-time strategy games are not for console—before Halo Wars came and put this theory to rest. The game took most part of the decade and now the second installment of the game is here to make your minds blow again. There is a lot to know for the fans about the game and the revelations that have been made by the Microsoft. But some of the most important details have been covered in this article before the game is launched for Xbox One and Windows 10 on February 21.
Halo Wars 2 Announcements and Release Date:
The fans had lost all hopes for a sequel of the game until the Microsoft made an announcement at the Gamescom 2015 that the game was actually in progress. The game was handed to the Creative Assembly’s team—the studio that developed Total War– after the earlier developers were shut down. The rumors began before the Presentation of Microsoft for E3 of the game and all of those happened to be true that the beta version was in progress for a run on June 22. Then, the definitive and ultimate editions were slipped past the original window of 2016 and are now set to release on February 21, 2017.
Halo Wars 2 Blitz Mode and Gameplay:
Around October, the Microsoft also unveiled a very exciting multiplayer mode for the game that is called the Blitz Mode. The theme of this mode is based on the cards that you collect during the game and the challenged that you complete daily. It allows you to go for a battle with a 12-card deck to determine the type of units that you may send in. If you want to send better and powerful units, you must think about your strategies before you make any decision.
The hands-on approach revealed that this mode is all about fighting with your enemies using Spartans, Scorpions, and Warthogs but with a much better graphical and tactical view of the scene than the original Halo Wars’ action field.
This mode has been specifically designed for the people who don’t play strategy games that much. The main purpose of Blitz Mode is to hold more capture points than your opponent and then try to claim the history by gathering up more points. The thinking behind it to give the gamers a faster and more streamlined gameplay. The gameplay for the game will be 1.2 million hours. After the beta launch, the Creative Assembly claims to make the look and play of the game much better in August. The Beta version has already exceeded expectations with a million matches in 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 modules.
Halo Wars 2 Wrap Up and More:
The buzz about Halo Wars hasn’t been that much around since before the beta launch and that’s very unfortunate. The game looks shaping incredibly well so it doesn’t matter if you’re a huge fan of RTS games—or not—this beautiful game has something for everyone in it. The biggest reasons for hope are the badass Blitz Mode and the game’s breathtaking story. The game is sure to keep the fans busy for a while—until the next sequel comes in—and promises to give you a full, deep experience on console along with a new mode that lets you get in and get out pretty quickly.
