If you weren’t able to take part in the first beta for Halo Wars 2 then fret not, as Microsoft has now confirmed that a second beta for the game is on the way. While we don’t have exact information on when it will be available, we do know that it will be closer to launch and will be for both Xbox One and PC.
The second beta will also be including a new mode for the game, joining the modes deathmatch and domination that were available in the first beta. Microsoft isn’t sharing any news on what this new mode will be at this time, though more information is expected soon.
The following is a brief rundown on what to expect from Halo Wars 2:
“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.”
Halo Wars 2 will launch for Xbox One and PC on February 21st, 2017. The game is also a Play Anywhere game, meaning that purchasing it digitally on Xbox One or PC will get you a free copy of the other version.
