Fear the Brutes, Microsoft announces Halo Wars 2

Microsoft just announced that they are in fact making Halo Wars 2. The original was well received back in 2009 by critics and fans which garnered a respectable 82 score overall on Metacritic. That is quite a feat for an RTS on a console, not to mention the fact it was a spin-off from an FPS.

Developed by 343 and Creative Assembly, the teaser is only a minute long, but we do get a glimpse of the UNSC retreating, out of fear from a Brute while he casually taunts them with “Yes, run little demons” while wielding what looks to be an upgraded gravity hammer. The other Spartans are being lifted by their necks and tossed like rag dolls by the Brutes.

The original focused on the earlier years of the war with covenant being the biggest threat, and then introduced both the flood and brutes. This time, however, it looks like the Brutes may play a bigger role in the upcoming game. My biggest hope for the next installment is that I will have the ability to customize my base and set it up how I want instead of having predetermined locations laid out without the ability to change or move buildings around to my liking.

Halo Wars 2 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 Fall 2016.
