Halo Wars 2 Atriox Trailer

Recommended Posts

Recently, 343 released its second trailer for the upcoming Halo Wars 2 during the Game Awards. The trailer focuses on the main antagonist and the Brute commander of the Banished, Atriox. It starts with Isabel, the new logistics AI found by Red Team on the Ark telling them about Atriox's past and how he came to be the ruthless leader of his faction that he is today - "And so battle by battle, war by war, Atriox was born." I'll let the trailer do the storytelling itself:

 

 

 

Halo Wars 2 will be releasing February 2017 and if you buy the Ultimate Edition you get Halo Wars Definitive Edition for free which they also released a trailer for.

 

 

And here are some notables I found in my frame-by-frame watch of the HW2 trailer:

 

 

Atriox recognizes he is being threatened but is clearly unafraid of the leader of this particular squad of Elites from the Silent Shadow.

The birth of the Banished.

Atriox, Decimus, and one more Brute possibly aboard the Spirit of Fire.

This is either the result of the glassing beam breaking the Ark's surface or the Ark is in trouble for other reasons.

Atriox has a large army with many Scarabs and troop carriers.

Well, this may be the first game in a while I buy on release. CA hasn't let me down before, so this should be good.

2017's going to be a good year for gaming. Halo Wars 2, Breath of the Wild, and Stardew multiplayer will make sure I never see the great outdoors again.

I imagine Atriox looking over that army, stroking is magnificent beard and whispering to himself: 'All units'
