Creative Assembly has followed up with their batch of Gamescom 2016 screenshots for the upcoming Halo Wars 2, releasing on February 21st, 2017 on Xbox One and PC.
The team is excited to host the first ever playable build of the title, since it’s E3 announcement. They take some time to provide insight on the map that will be shown-via blogpost.
Creative Assembly details further:
Fans in Europe will get the first look and first hands-on with our brand new Halo Wars 2 multiplayer map, Rift, on the Strongholds multiplayer mode. At the heart of this exciting new map sits a monolithic Forerunner structure that harnesses the power from the subterranean networks beneath the Ark’s surface. Whilst one half of the map is unsullied by war, the other is pitted with large breaches in the surface as the Banished tunnel downwards to plunder the core’s precious resources. Rift is a visually stunning and memorable battleground providing a huge range of cool strategic and tactical options. We can’t wait for fans to fight it out in this new map and to hear their thoughts.
