Halo Wars 2 Coming next week is the new leader Morgan Kinsano. She is a pyromaniac with a lot of her powers revolving around fire, including her own fire Cyclops, flamethrower warthogs and napalm strikes. You’ll be able to get it free with the season pass next week or, I would assume, buy it individually for an unspecified price.

Along with the new leader will be a large patch to change various things in the game. New ranked playlists will be added along with adjustments to the economy. We’ll have more details on all of this in a blog post later tonight or tomorrow.


Destiny The second reveal stream for Age of Triumph has given a closer look at some of the activities revolving around the new event. To start, The Speaker will have a 12 part quest at the tower that takes you through everything there is to do. Changes to the weekly events include a story mission playlist for the week instead of a daily mission, adding a 390 Challenge of the Elders event, and the return of blue flames with bonus XP for completing the Nightfall strike. An addition to the Nightfall is the Daybreak modifier which combines the Epic modifier with the Crucible’s Mayhem mode with fast charging abilities and supers. Daybreak will only appear once a month until July where it will be active for 6 weeks in a row.

The final addition is a new Treasure of Ages to collect. Inside the box you can get any item that had been previously available in any of the past treasure boxes including the seasonal events. Masks, Dawning armor, SRL sparrows and horns, it’s all there. There will also be a set of new Triumph armor to collect as well as a ship and new ornaments. If you want something specific, the Silver Dust kiosk will be updated to allow purchase of any of the individual items you want. You can get three of the new treasure boxes each week by playing the weekly story playlist, weekly Crucible mode, and the 390 Challenge of the Elders. Next week will hold the information we want the most, weapon details.
