Halo is one of the faces of the Xbox franchise. Halo actually put the Xbox game consoles on the gaming map.
The first Halo games were first-person shooter games and it really revolutionized the genre because of the Master chief. It also presented the public with new innovations such as the regenerating suit, combat vehicles, and of course, the arsenal that is present in every Halo game.

Because of its success, the developers of the Halo games wanted to explore other options. Thus, the Halo Wars franchise was born.
The Halo Wars games is actually a Real-Time Strategy title where you build a lot of units in order to defeat the enemy’s base.
After a couple of years since the first Halo Wars game was launched, the developers in the E3 2016 event showcased the new Halo Wars 2 game.
The game presents you with two factions: The UNSC or the human forces and the Covenant, a highly-advanced alien race.
The Halo Wars 2 is one of Microsoft’s confirmed titles that will support the “Xbox Play Anywhere System”. If you do not know what it is, when you buy a digital copy of this game from the Xbox or Windows store, you can play it either on the Xbox game console or the PC. This gives you the added flexibility to choose which gaming platform you want to play this game on.
The story of the game just continues where the first game left off. Some soldiers from the Spirit of Fire reawakens from their cryosleep and they found some rogue Covenant forces headed by Atriox.
Atriox and his team of rogue Covenant warriors are seeking an artifact that they call as the “Ark”.
This new and powerful artifact will be the focus of the game as both the UNSC and Covenant forces will surely fight over it.
The game follows the traditional flow of RTS games. You get to have a base at the beginning of the game. Then, you get some resources in order for you to train units and create buildings. Expand your territory to gain advantage and attack the enemy when you have a sizable army.
Of course, this game is not called a real-time strategy game for nothing. You need to manage your resources very well and you have to keep a close eye on your units and structures. Make sure that you have a constant stream of soldiers and train more in a consistent basis, otherwise, you will lose the battle.
The Halo Wars 2 game has a single player campaign mode and a multiplayer mode which pits you against other people, either online or via LAN.
I know that this game will be available for the Xbox game console and the PC but I think many people would love to play the PC version because of the functionality and fluidity of PC peripherals.
Nevertheless, this game looks promising and if you’re an RTS fan, this game is worth playing.
