Microsoft took to the Game Awards stage to show off a cinematic trailer for Halo Wars 2. The trailer gave us a first look at the game’s big bad… Atriox, a Brute commander who wants to destroy both humanity and the Covenant. Atriox and his followers, known as The Banished, look to be quite the formidable foes.

Microsoft also announced that if you pre-order the digital version of Halo Wars 2, you’ll get early access to Halo Wars: Definitive Edition starting on December 20th.

Halo Wars 2 announced at Gamescom 2015

Microsoft announced Halo Wars 2, a followup to the original Halo-themed RTS from 2009, at their Gamescom Briefing just a short few hours ago.

Interestingly, Sega’s Creative Assembly, the same team behind the Total War series, as well as Alien: Isolation, will be leading development. Ensemble Studios was responsible for the original Halo Wars, but they were shut down by Microsoft shortly after the release of the game.

Halo Wars 2 will be coming to the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs sometime in Fall 2016.
