Microsoft has released the launch trailer for the real-time strategy game Halo Wars 2. The new game is scheduled to launch in 14 days.


The new game is set in the science fiction universe of the Halo series in the year 2559, and is a sequel to the 2009 video game Halo Wars. The game sees the return of the human crew aboard the UNSC warship Spirit of Fire and introduces a new alien faction known as the Banished.
Like Halo Wars, the game features two playable factions: humanity's main military arm, the United Nations Space Command, who return from the first game, and a new alien faction known as the Banished, who serve as replacement for the Covenant.

The PC version of the game will be getting a physical disc release. The PC version will be released in two versions: the Standard Edition and the Ultimate Edition.

The Ultimate Edition will be available starting February 17th 2017 and the Standard Edition will be available 4 days later on February 21st 2017.
