Microsoft showed a new Halo Wars 2 trailer at The Game Awards 2016, the trailer tells the legend of the Brute, Atriox.
The trailer explains how the Covenant use of Brutes in war forged Atriox into being the war-ravaged and angry foe that you face in Halo Wars 2. The Covenant nearly wiped out humanity but even they were unable to stop the Brute they created and now fear.
Halo Wars 2 launches for Windows 10 PC and Xbox One on the 16th February 2017. The game is part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program meaning that you only need to buy it once to play on both platforms.
