"halo wars 2", the upcoming game created by Microsoft Studios, is going to be released on Xbox one and PC on Tuesday, February 21st. The story of "Halo Wars 2" is the follow-up of "Halo 5: Guardians." "Halo Wars 2" is a real-time strategy game that features five different types of multiplayer modes such as Skirmish, Stronghold, Domination, Deathmatch, and Blitz.


The game stands in the year 2559. The 'Spirits of Fire' finally awaken from their cryo-sleep above the Ark, where the Halo Rings were manufactured. Since the 'Spirits of Fire' were unaware of what happened in the last 28 years, when they receive a signal from the Ark, they just go there.

There a Spartan team meets Atriux and his alien group named 'Banished', which then turn out to be the villains of the game.

Most of the game takes place on the mythical 'Ark' which was first introduced in "Halo 3" and is the start of the series 'eponymous Halo rings'. Captain Cutter and his crew fight a dangerous new enemy, Atriux, who wants to conquer everything in the path. The Banished brings a lot of old "Halo" alien weapons of war to the battlefield with an explosive new redesign, making them as brutal and deadly as anything the 'United Nations Space Command (UNSC)' has ever seen when they went against the Covenant.


There five multiplayer modes in the game, with the newest one being 'Blitz'.

'Blitz' is an all-new multiplayer mode that is an exciting addition to the 'Halo Wars' series with a different approach to RTS gameplay. Though we had Deathmatch before, in the new Deathmatc you’ll plan and build your base and army, but instead of fighting for map control you'll fight until only one player remains standing.

'Domination' stayed the same and just got new units, leaders, and special abilities.

If you don't know what 'Stronghold' is, it's just a fast-paced, timed game mode where the objective is to control more bases than your opponent before the time ends. Lastly, everyone should know what 'Skirmish' is, it's the one you fight against the computer or real life opponents.
