New Halo Wars 2 Dev Diary Talks Up Multiplayer, New Card-Based Blitz Mode

343 Industries and Creative Assembly have shared a new developer diary introducing the multiplayer in Halo Wars 2.

Featured above, the new video has a myriad of staff talking up the various multiplayer modes, including classics like domination, deathmatch, as well as newer modes like stronghold, and blitz – the latter of which is a mix of tactical combat and card-based strategy.

Halo Wars 2 is set within the year 2559, and is a direct sequel to the 2009-released original, Halo Wars. Players will once again control the human crew aboard the UNSC warship Spirit of Fire, however a new faction is introduced: the Banished.

Halo Wars 2 will be released on February 21st, 2017 for the Xbox One and PC.

    All of these dumb cuts and overproduced video of people being totally excited in your face about their videogame reminded me of CrowbCat’s video.

    And that reminded me again

    let me guess itl have £8.23 real money limited edition card packs like Gears of War 4 in your FULL PRICED FUCKING GAME

    yeah honestly fuck off with these “card” based modes there only in to milk money off people by holding off on features and forcing you to pay for the CHANCE of receiving them.

    “as well as newer modes like stronghold, and
    blitz – the latter of which is a mix of tactical combat and card-based
    strategy.”

    My spidey senses are telling me that you can probably purchase more cards in a microtransaction if you are so inclined… or actually want to win.
