halo wars 2

Microsoft has announced one more beta program for the Halo Wars multi player shoot out but this time around the focus will be exclusively on the brand-new, card-based game mode, Blitz.

The new beta program runs through Jan 20 – Jan 30, and gives you the opportunity to get hands-on with Halo Wars 2 and participate in one final large-scale multiplayer beta.

Blitz is our new twist on RTS gameplay that combines the deck building and split-second decision making of card-based strategy play with explosive tactical combat in the Halo universe. 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. We’re really excited about this new mode and look forward to unleashing Blitz upon the community to play and run through its paces prior to launch.

Microsoft is officially releasing Halo Wars 2 multiplayer shooter on Feb. 21, 2017.
