Last year, Microsoft gave the community a chance to try out Halo Wars 2 beta but many didn’t get the chance to experience the new Halo Wars. Halo Wars 2 beta is starting on January 20 and is going to end on January 30.
Through the beta, Players will be able to try card-based game mode, Blitz. With Halo Wars 2 beta, Microsoft Studios and 343i ae trying to attract new players to the RTS genre.
According to The Executive Producer of Halo Wars 2 David Nicholson:
We’ve looked at some of the controls. We’ve tried to make the controls a little bit more intuitive, we’ve tried to respond to the reactions and the feedback that we’ve had. We’ve also looked at the population caps, the number of units that you can bring out into the field; we’re still in the midst of development now, so things are progressing and changing all the time.
But really, we’ve listened to all of the feedback, we’ve taken a lot of it on board. There’s a lot of things that we’re not yet saying about the game, that people haven’t seen. Which again, there will be fantastic, really exciting surprises for people to see new ways to engage with an RTS on both the console and on Windows 10. So yeah, the player feedback has been absolutely fantastic.
Halo Wars 2 is releasing this year for XBOX One and Windows 10 PC. Halo Wars 2 is one of the biggest Xbox games to release this year, expectations are high and we trust in 343i to deliver a great experience.
