Halo Wars 2, Xbox, and 343 Industries have brought the intensity of battle to gamers through a dramatic real-world combat experience inspired by the Halo universe.
Unaware of the test ahead, fans were led into a Halo-themed military command centre where a conventional demonstration quickly turned into an onslaught of action and chaos, as the frenetic nature of battle was captured with UNSC unit commanders requesting orders.
The new recruits quickly realised that they were in the hot seat, tasked with saving their own lives and their units, with no other tools other than their quick strategic thinking. Some panicked at the situation; others began to embrace it.
Find out who rose to the challenge, and who fell: Halo Wars 2 in Real Life – Who Will Survive?
The experience was inspired by the Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta that’s available now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Real-time strategy makes an explosive return to the Halo universe in Halo Wars 2. Lead armies of Spartans and other Halo fighting forces like Warthogs, Hornets, and Vultures to engage in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield ever.
Download the beta now until Jan. 30 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC’s ahead of the worldwide game launch on Feb. 21.
