Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta Revealed


After the success of the first Halo Wars 2 Beta, 343 Industries quickly confirmed there would be a second one. Now the date and game mode for the beta has been revealed. The Halo Wars 2 Blitz Multiplayer Beta will be available from the 20th January to the 30th January. 

Blitz mode is a card based strategy style game mode that combines deck building and fast decision making you’d find in a card-based strategy game with the combat and tactics you’re used to using in an RTS. The map that will be available in the beta is named “Proving Grounds”, and you’ll be glad to hear that all progress made in the beta WILL carry over to the final copy of the game. There will also be prizes and such for being part of the beta so don’t miss out!
