343 Industries has announced the release date for when you can play the blitz beta for Halo Wars 2. You’ll be able to play the beta a month before the game comes out.
As announced via the Halo Waypoint blog, players will be able to participate in the latest Halo Wars 2 multiplayer beta on January 20th, 2017. This beta will be available to play on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One.
A short description on YouTube reads: “Introducing Blitz, an all-new mode for Halo Wars 2 where tactical combat meets card-based strategy. Experience it on Xbox One and Windows 10 with the free Blitz Multiplayer Beta January 20th – 30th”
The actual game itself releases on February 21st for both Xbox One and Windows 10. Unlike other Halo video games, this new game is a real-time strategy (RTS) title. Are you excited to play the beta coming out later this month? Check out the trailer below for more info.
