Halo Wars 2 Atriox Story and Early Access
« on: December 02, 2016, 08:06:43 AM »




If you’ve been wanting more details on the menacing Brute Chieftain then here it is. Atriox is a proven warrior and strategic mastermind. As the first to rebel against the Covenant and survive, his army stands as a dangerous enemy that must be stopped.



Additional details were also given for Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. Pre-orders of the Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition will be able get the remaster starting December 20th. Codes may take up to 10 days to be delivered, but that’s better than the two months to wait for Halo Wars 2, coming February 21st. As of right now there has been no mention of the Definitive Edition being sold separately. Check out the new trailer below.

I liked Halo Wars. So this looks promising. I'd like to see a little more of the game play. But I like it.

There's several trailers with gameplay in this thread. From the beta it seemed to play pretty much the same. They made a lot of changes since then from the feedback, but it shouldn't be that big of a leap from how the original felt.

I count 75 achievements. The original had 58. They added 14 achievements for finishing each Mission, while deleting 4 for finishing each Act. (There was already "Meet Sargeant Forge" for completing Mission 1.) They deleted "OMG BFF FTW" for completing the entire campaign in co-op.

They added achievements for 40, 50, 75, and 100 wins in Skirmish or MP. They added "Halo Undergraduate" for unlocking one timeline event, "Hardly Tardy" for 5 Heroic missions under par time, "Lovely Bunch of Coconuts" for collecting 8 skulls, "Racing the Clock" for one Heroic mission under par time.

So all told, 5 deletions and 22 additions.

The requirements of "Basically Naive," "Officer on Deck," and "Running the Show" were changed to 10, 20, and 30 wins in Skirmish or MP.

I haven't noticed any other differences between the old and new list.

HOLY CRAP 343 figured out part of what made the original Halo trilogy so great was that they actually injected HUMOR into the story!!!

These vids are awesome.
