Microsoft memublikasikan trailer terbaru Halo Wars 2 selama ajang The Game Awards 2016. Trailer tersebut memperkenalkan seorang karakter baru bernama Atriox.
Berikut penjelasan Microsoft mengenai Atriox:
His name is Atriox, a Brute enslaved by the Covenant who eventually rose up against his masters and became a legend. His rebellion inspired the birth of The Banished, a savage army of mercenaries and killers now on the brink of acquiring the most powerful weapons platform the galaxy has ever seen. The only things between Atriox and his prize are Captain James Cutter and the crew of the USNC Spirit of Fire. Outgunned and long past any hope for reinforcements, Cutter’s survival depends on how quickly he can master the first law of the battlefield: Know your enemy.
Halo Wars 2 akan meluncur ke Xbox One dan PC pada tanggal 21 Februari 2017.
