For a limited time those fine folks at Microsoft have made the new Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta available to Windows 10 PC users and you can download it now via the Windows Store 🙂 This early access sample gives us a go at a new game mode designed to put players right into the action.
Blitz is a new twist on gameplay that combines card-based strategy with action packed RTS combat. Your card deck is your army in Blitz as you build collections of powerful Halo vehicles and troops and command those units in fast-action battles.
The Halo Wars 2: Blitz Beta is available to try out for yourself until January 30th, you’ll and the full game is set to release February 18th in NZ.
We’ve captured a quick round on with our own GTX 1050 Hero Gaming PC so you can check things out, with no bases to produce units in Halo Wars the card system is used to strengthen your armies and the currency drop effectively replaced the traditional resource harvesting we had in games like Star Craft and C&C.
