As many of you will know, a few days ago we had the 2016 Game Awards. Lucky for us the Game Awards isn't just about the awards themselves: it's also a chance for us to watch new game announcements and trailer premieres. One trailer in particular that has gotten many Halo and Xbox fans excited is the new trailer for Halo Wars 2. Although this trailer (viewable below) doesn't contain any gameplay, this stunning CGI video helps to reveal more of the story of the sequel to the hit RTS game set in the Halo universe. This reveal mainly focuses on the new Villain "Atriox", a Brute enslaved by the Covenant who later rebelled and formed his own organised and ruthless army known as "The Banished".
Dan Ayoub of 343 Industries also announced at the awards that those who pre-order the digital version of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition will be granted early access to Halo Wars Definitive Edition when it releases on December 20th. Halo Wars Definitive Edition, as the name implies, is an enhanced edition of the critically claimed Halo Wars that runs natively on Xbox One and Windows 10. The edition features improved visuals, new achievements and all of the DLC released for the 2009 RTS. Check out the trailer below:
Halo Wars 2 and Halo Wars Definitive Edition release on February 17th 2017 on Xbox One and Windows 10. Those who preorder the Ultimate Edition will be able to play the Definitive Edition early from 20th December onwards
