The Halo Wars 2 multiplayer beta will be firing up on January 20 for Windows 10 users, so get ready to test out this new Halo-based RTS!
Our good friends over at PCGamesN posted earlier today regarding an upcoming testing opportunity. Apparently the Halo Wars 2 multiplayer beta will be firing up on January 20 and running for 10 days. Those of you who are running Windows 10 should be able to jump in on the action.
I never tried the original Halo Wars, mostly because I am distinctly terrible at RTS games. Thus, I generally avoid them out of sheer embarrassment. However, if you happen to like RTS games, or at least liked the original Halo Wars, then this news is for you. Halo Wars 2 looks to be much of the same top down action. This time around there appears to be some form of deck building involved because, sure, why not? Deck building is becoming almost ubiquitous in video gaming these days. Might as well slap it onto the Halo franchise as well. Check out the gameplay trailer below for a glimpse of how the game will play.
I don’t see any details about how to gain access to the Halo Wars 2 multiplayer beta. But, seeing as this is a Windows 10 and Xbox exclusive I imagine that you will need to access the beta via an Xbox Live account. Keep an eye out for it.
