Halo Wars 2 is now in Open Beta on Xbox One! The console friendly RTS set in the Halo universe is back and is looking better than ever.
A lot has changed since it’s original outing on Xbox 360 over seven years ago, with new developers – Creative Assembly (Total War: Warhammer) at the helm, bringing their expertise in the genre to the franchise. One thing that thankfully hasn’t changed though is the art style, with the character designs and artwork being far more akin to the original Halo games than the more generic looking later releases.
Although it never set the world on fire, the original Halo Wars game was well received on release, and the new developers certainly have a good pedigree with RTS games. The Open Beta starts today, with players able to download it via the Xbox Store, and will finish on the 30th of June.
