This chilling Halo Wars 2 trailer is just what we need this December. Keep in mind that the game isn't coming out until early 2017 and is quite different from the original Halo. The game's not an FPS but a real-time strategy (RTS) game.
If you played Halo 5 Guardians, then Halo Wars 2 will satiate your yearning for answers after the cliff hanger ending of Halo 5. “The story of Halo Wars 2 dives straight into the chaotic state of the Halo universe directly after the events of Halo 5: Guardians.”
UNSC Spirit of Fire crew wake up on the Ark (an ancient Forerunner haven) from a 28 year cryosleep (in simple terms, a nap) after the original Halo Wars. Unaware of the state of the world around them, they must leave the Ark to discover what’s left of the galaxy. However, an unguarded world allowed for the rise of a menacing and formidable threat: the Banished, led by Atriox. You’ll encounter repurposed Covenant vehicles and weapons as “the Banished fought the Covenant around the same time that humans did.”
If the campaign isn’t enough for you, the multiplayer will include classic Halo :
Skirmish - team deathmatch.
Stronghold - control as many bases as you can before the timer runs out.
Domination - Build your base, build your army and fight for control of the map.
Deathmatch - fight until only one player is left standing.
Blitz - a mix between tactical combat and card-based strategy.
