Halo Wars 2 is coming out on February 21, but we have the first hour of gameplay ready for you to watch. We took command of the UNSC forces from the Spirit of Fire as they faced off against the Banished and their warlord Atriox.
Halo Wars 2 takes place a short time after Halo 5: Guardians and pits players against a familiar, but new foe. The Brutes make their return with their leader Atriox at the head of a force that calls itself The Banished. They rose to power following the downfall of The Covenant and seek to destroy and conquer other species. The crew of the Spirit of Fire revives to find themselves the only ones who can stop Atriox and save the galaxy.
