@  Maestro : (19 November 2019 - 12:32 PM) I'm hoping at least the campaigns and custom games are cross-platform. I've heard PC players may have an advantage with matchmaking but I'm not 100% sure about it
@  RedStarRocket91 : (18 November 2019 - 03:30 AM) @UNSC Spartan-II No clue, but I hope so

@  UNSC Spartan-II : (17 November 2019 - 07:51 AM) @RedStarRocket91 I'm on board, will cross-platform sessions be available?

Information surrounding the Halo Wars 2 Beta was leaked accidentally in the Xbox Store today: supposedly ahead of it's planned reveal at Microsoft's E3 conference on June 13th. Said leak apparently was a result of Xbox Director of Programming Larry Hyrb aka 'Major Nelson' following said page.

 

Based on what was shown, the Beta will run from June 13th to June 20th. The full list of info gleaned is below:

  • "Be among the first to experience the explosive return of real-time strategy to the Halo universe in the Halo Wars 2 Multiplayer Beta for Xbox One", the opening paragraph reads.
  • Will run from June 13th, 2016 - the day of the Microsoft press conference, but not confirmed at what time - to June 20th, 2016 specifically for Xbox One. Windows 10 was not mentioned.
  • Requires an Xbox Live Gold Membership to participate.
  • The Beta will be 13GBs in size.
  • Number of players capable of playing the Beta on one console is restricted to just 1 while it's up to 6 online.
  • The Beta is 100% open, and can be accessed by anyone on it's launch date.

 

As an indirect response to the leak the official Halo Youtube channel has begun uploading intriguing yet haunting '101s' regarding the events of the first Halo Wars. What this means not only for the sequel but for the original is yet to be determined. The canonically-first episode of the series can be seen here.

 

Halo Wars 2 is a real-time strategy game slated for release sometime in late 2016 for both Xbox One and Windows 10 - developed in partnership between SEGA's Creative Assembly of Total War fame and 343 Industries. The game will be shown at the Microsoft E3 conference starting at 9:30 AM PT on June 13th.

 

Thanks for reading!  :split:

I bet ya they're going to do the same as they did with the Gears UE beta and drop the "beta available after this speech!" bomb.

First off make the building style like command and conquer so we got more freedom in the game I hate being limited to preset locations. And second give us more bigger unit caps in halo wars 2 but keep it halo then you will get more fans from all over. Like starcraft and command and conquer then the game will be perfect I'm just saying tweak the game play but keep it halo.please that's the only way you are going to sell alot of copys.
