Halo Wars 2 next DLC leader has been revealed. Or rather, the leaders of the next DLC have been revealed, as instead of a single leader, Colony is a manifestation of the Lekgolo, the communal, worm-like alien lifeforms that fans of the series may recognize as the Hunters.
“Strange and inscrutable, the Hunter pair who identifies as “Colony” is believed to be either a representative for Lekgolo allied to the Banished or a specialized command form of the alien eel-worms”, reads Colony’s bio on the Halo Waypoint. “Colony defers only to Atriox and is charged with directing all Banished Lekgolo activities on the Ark, including creation and expansion of Lekgolo clusters for use in vehicles and other specialized applications. Though it cooperates with the Banished, Colony appears to have its own plans for the Ark. Most of its attention is currently focused on the activities near the resting place of the Forerunner keyships, missions undertaken outside the knowledge of other Banished leaders.”
Colony specializes in buffing Lekgolo-driven constructs, ranging from heals to boosting attack. You can see Colony in action in the video below. Halo Wars 2 is out now on the PC and Xbox One, with Colony being available for download on April 19th.
