Halo Wars 2 – Cinematic Trailer Introduces Atriox, The Leader Of Banished

His name is Atriox, a Brute enslaved by the Covenant who eventually rose up against his masters and became a legend. His rebellion inspired the birth of The Banished, a savage army of mercenaries and killers now on the brink of acquiring the most powerful weapons platform the galaxy has ever seen. The only things between Atriox and his prize are Captain James Cutter and the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire. Outgunned and long past any hope for reinforcements, Cutter’s survival depends on how quickly he can master the first law of the battlefield: Know your enemy.

On the other hand, Halo Wars: Definite Edition was announced at Game Awards 2016 which is an enhanced version of the 2009 release for Xbox One and Windows 10 with enhanced graphics, all DLC to date and new achievements. Halo Wars: Definite Edition will be available for those who pre-order the digital version of Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition.

Halo Wars 2 will launch on February 21 for Windows 10 and Xbox One. Prior to its release, there will be a beta with support of Crossplay between the two platforms.
