Halo Wars 2, the first Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive to launch in 2017 by Microsoft is receiving its 2nd Beta before it launches on Xbox One again and the first time on Windows 10.
Blitz is a new twist on RTS gameplay that combines the deck building and split-second decision making of card-based strategy play with explosive tactical combat in the Halo universe. Your card deck, along with your faction leader, are your greatest resources as you assemble a collection of air, ground and infantry units and seek to out-think and out-maneuver your opponents on the battlefield. The Beta will all be PvP.
The Blitz Beta will take place on the map “Proving Grounds,” and will offer 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 gameplay via matchmaking on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, t’s important to note that none of the cards or progress you earn within the Blitz Beta will carry over to the retail game.
“We’re really excited about this new mode and look forward to unleashing Blitz upon the community to play and run through its paces prior to launch. The Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta will officially begin on Friday, Jan. 20 and is slated to run through Jan. 30, 2017.”
We hope to see you online playing Halo Wars 2 next week!
