Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare Gamescom News



Awakening the Nightmare, the newest upcoming Halo Wars 2 DLC allows you to play as the Banished, as you fight the age old enemy of the Halo series, the Flood. While this DLC has been announced for some time, we have now been given new information at Gamescom as to when this DLC will launch; as well as some nice new art, screenshots, and a gameplay video. This new story DLC will launch on the 26th September, and will include a whole new firefight mode named Terminus Firefight. Terminus Firefight allows you to fight off against never ending waves of enemies, solo or with a friend. You can find the new images and gameplay below.
