Halo Wars 2 Is Getting Another Beta

Halo Wars 2 is getting a second beta. And this time, it’s open and free to everyone. Well, everyone who has an Xbox One or PC that is.

The beta kicks off on Friday, January 20th, and lasts until January 30th. Unlike the last beta, this one focus more on the card based mode, Blitz. Here’s what the mode is, as explained by 343 Industries studio head Dan Ayoub.

“Blitz is our new twist on RTS gameplay that combines the deck building and splitsecond decision making of card-based strategy play with explosive tactical combat in the Halo universe,” Ayoub said on Major Nelson’s website. “Your card deck, along with your faction leader, are your greatest resources as you assemble a collection of air, ground and infantry units and seek to out-think and out-maneuver your opponents on the battlefield.”

According to Gamespot, you can only access this beta if you an Xbox Gold membership if you want to participate on the Xbox One but not on the PC. Halo Wars 2 is set to release on February 14th of this year for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
