Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta Goes Live Today

Halo Wars 2 – the next entry in the sprawling Halo Universe saga – lands on 21st February, but from today eager Spartans will get the chance to test themselves in battle in the open Blitz Beta.

Running from 20 – 30 January, the Blitz Beta showcases an entirely new way to play Halo Wars. Part Real Time Strategy title, part card strategy game, Blitz promises fast paced action where your deck of cards represents the troops and units at your disposal. Timing is key – the right card is no good if played at the wrong time, against the wrong enemies. Play online with friends or strangers, or play solo against waves of enemies, Firefight style.

Make sure you’re part of the Blitz Beta by downloading it as soon as it becomes available today.

Halo Wars 2 – which you’ll be able to play four days early if you’ve splashed out on the Ultimate Edition – is a Play Anywhere title, which means that digital copies bought through the Store can be played both on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.

You can preorder the Standard edition for £47.74, or the Ultimate edition for £64.99, from the Store. Prepare to do battle!
