Microsoft announced today a new beta for Halo Wars 2. This one – slated for January 20, through January 30 – will let you duke it out with the new Blitz game mode, which sees players combine deck building with classic RTS gameplay.
From the announcement:
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.
While progress made during the beta won’t carry over to the final release, those that do participate will get two free in-game Blitz card packs at launch.
Halo Wars 2 is set to launch for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on February 21.
