Here's a teasing look at Halo Wars 2's campaign

Halo Wars was one of those things that really shouldn’t have worked. And because it was such an odd idea, it was largely ignored. It’s a pity, because it really was an excellent game that managed to successfully bring the RTS to modern consoles.

Its premise is intriguing enough that we’ll be getting a sequel. Halo Wars 2 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in February next year. Like all of Microsoft’s other games, it’ll be a Play Anywhere game, which means that you need to just buy it on Xbox One digitally, and you’ll get it for PC too – where you’ll be able to use a mouse and keyboard to play the game instead of a controller, as RTS games should be.

It follows the events of Halo 5 and will let you construct bases and amass armies of Spartan troops.

“An all-new enemy threatens the Halo universe and the only thing standing between Armageddon and humanity is the brave crew on board the Spirit of Fire.

Halo Wars 2 delivers real-time strategy at the speed of Halo combat. Get ready to lead armies of Spartans and other Halo fighting forces like Warthogs, Scorpions and exciting new units in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield ever. “

Some new campaign cutscene footage has been extricated from a recent Twitch stream from RTX, showing of some of the game’s in-between mission exposition. If you played the last Halo Wars on the Xbox 360, you’ll know that that was a particular highlight, so there’s a lot to live up to.
