Halo Wars 2 launches in early 2017

Beta for upcoming strategy game now live on Xbox One

Posted on

At E3 today, Microsoft has announced that Halo Wars 2 is coming to Windows 10 PC and Xbox One on February 21, 2017.

Also, starting today, anyone with an Xbox One and Xbox Live Gold can download the Halo Wars 2 Multiplayer Beta, which features two game modes over the course of a week. Domination will be available from today through June 16. Domination is the classic RTS gameplay from Halo Wars, now with all-new units, leaders, and special abilities. Deathmatch will be available from June 17 until June 20. In Deathmatch, you’ll plan and build your base and army – but instead of fighting for map control, you’ll fight until only one player remains standing.

"We also know that PC gamers may ask why the current multiplayer beta is only available on Xbox One. We’re working hard to make sure that the PC experience lives up to expectations, and we simply couldn’t get a beta ready in time for E3 that would address the variety of specs across PC rigs. We will be doing a second beta closer to launch that will be available on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One," said the developers at Creative Assembly.

The strategy game will launch as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, which means that a single digital purchase of Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC will get you access to the other version at no additional cost.
