Halo Wars 2 Will Have a Mode that Is “a Completely New Way to Play a RTS”

During a stage event at PAX West, 343 Industries Studio Head Dan Ayoub delivered a tease on a new mode for Halo 2 that appears to be something that RTS players haven’t tried before, and that is supposed to be played in quick sessions.

“One of the modes, which I can only tease for the time being, is actually a completely new way to play a RTS. It really takes standard RTS gameplay and turns it on its head. And that’s a mode that can be played in a shorter time frame as well, like five, six, seven minutes.”

Ayoub did not reveal any further details on the mode in question. We’ll have to wait for more information, while the game will be released for Xbox One and Windows 10 on February 21st, 2017, with an open beta coming at the beginning of next year.
