Halo Wars 2 is receiving yet another or the second DLC pack, Colony. The Hunter pair known as Colony, is available today on Xbox Play Anywhere title Halo Wars 2 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.

The DLC Leader is rolling out now as part of the Halo Wars 2 season pass or individual purchase for $5.99, and features brand new units and abilities offering new strategies, tactics and gameplay across all multiplayer modes.
