Microsoft has shared a new trailer for Halo Wars 2.
Featured above, the new trailer introduces the dangerous and powerful character Atriox. The fighter was originally a Brute enslaved by the Covenant – only to eventually rise up against his masters and become a living legend.
Here’s a rundown on Atriox, via Microsoft:
His name is Atriox, a Brute enslaved by the Covenant who eventually rose up against his masters and became a legend. His rebellion inspired the birth of The Banished, a savage army of mercenaries and killers now on the brink of acquiring the most powerful weapons platform the galaxy has ever seen. The only things between Atriox and his prize are Captain James Cutter and the crew of the USNC Spirit of Fire. Outgunned and long past any hope for reinforcements, Cutter’s survival depends on how quickly he can master the first law of the battlefield: Know your enemy.
Microsoft also confirmed that early access to Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will kick off on December 20th, if you pre-order the digital version of the Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition.
Halo Wars 2 is launching for both Xbox One and PC on February 21st.
