Microsoft through its Wire has announced to launch ‘Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare’ on September 26 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
Community Manager at 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard said Awakening the Nightmare is a completely new expansion for Halo Wars 2, bringing a new Banished campaign, crisp Blur cinematics, new maps, new leaders and a new game mode called Terminus Firefight together in one exciting package.
He said ‘Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare’ promises to expand on the epic story from the main game, where players will battle through a brand-new series of campaign missions from the perspective of the Banished and experience their desperate struggle against the terrifying Flood.
‘Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare’ is more than just a story expansion though; it is jam-packed with new content that also includes new multiplayer maps (available for all Halo Wars 2 players), gorgeous Blur cinematics, exclusive new multiplayer Leaders and Terminus Firefight, a unique game mode in the expansion set on a dynamic map where players build bases and armies to defend against waves of enemy forces, the community manager said.
“In this tower-defense style firefight mode, you can build various types of walls, mini bases, and turrets to protect your Terminus from every enemy unit imaginable including new mini bosses!” he maintained.
Brian Jarrard said, “‘Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare’ expands upon an already burgeoning Halo Wars 2, where new DLC leaders have been released each month including newcomers Kinsano and Colony, as well as the cigar-chomping legend himself, Sergeant Johnson.”
Of course, the giant Mammoth in the room – Xbox One X is launching soon on Nov. 7 and both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Wars 2 will feature 4K support. Halo Wars 2 and Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare will also support HDR.
