Hello everyone, Jordan back again with all things Halo related for your information needs. 343 Industries have just announced the next Halo Wars 2 DLC, and it certainly is something to get excited about. Old enemies as you've never seen them before!
Halo Wars 2 is the sequel to Halo Wars, and is the second real time strategy game in the Halo franchise. Halo Wars 2 was developed by both 343 Industries and Creative Assembly, published by Microsoft Studios and released on both Xbox One and PC. Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition released on the 17th February 2017 with the standard edition releasing just a few days later on the 21st February 2017. The game is set in the year 2559, which is 28 years after the events of Halo Wars, and shortly after the events of Halo 5. I will keep this review as spoiler free as possible.
What with Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition launching on Friday 17th, it was safe to assume news about the soundtrack would come about just before launch. Finally, the veil has been lifted and we have a taste of what Halo's signature soundtrack for this new game will be. Composed by Gordy Haab, Brian Lee White and Brian Trifon, with guidance from the Halo Wars 2 Audio Director Paul Lipson, the Halo Wars 2 soundtrack previews prove that Halo still continues to have breathtaking and outstanding music.
As most keen Halo fans will know, on Friday 17th February, Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition is released. This means there is just one week until one of the most anticipated Halo campaigns ever is open to those lucky owners. Don't worry though, the standard edition releases just 4 days later. What with the game being so close to release, we have received the eagerly awaited live action trailers, as is in the fashion of any Halo game release.
These trailers are entitled "War of Wits" and focus on strategy game style comedy, which plays out well in the real life situations. It is somewhat like the Sherlock films, in which Sherlock would predict what his opponent would do before they've actually done it. These slices of humour are very refreshing and much appreciated in the style they've been made. Managing to put a deadly Brute leader into real life situations is nothing but amazing to begin with.
It's not long for 343 Industries and Creative Assembly to release the highly anticipated real-time strategy sequel Halo Wars 2. The sequel continues the adventures of the Spirit of Fire and her crew. The new opponent for this title are the brutes, led by Atriox, a fearsome brute commander. Don't believe me, check out the launch trailer below.
