343 Industries has just revealed new footage of the Halo Wars 2 campaign cinematic. The footage was revealed at the Halo panel at RTX 2016. In the footage we learn that the crew wakes up 28 years after the ending of Halo Wars 1. Small snippets of the footage show off the Ark and we get to see come combat between Spartans and the main antagonist of the game Brute chief Atriox.
After the reveal of Halo Wars 2 at E3 2016 the beta of the game was released to Xbox Live members. Although the released beta should be seen as a technical preview that is a work in progress, it was hard for some Halo fans to ignore some big issues the game had. Matchmaking and early quitting caused for an unpleasant experience. Time will tell if Halo Wars will shape up better than its initial impression.
Halo Wars 2 will release February 21, 2017.
