Halo Wars 2 expansion 'Awakening the Nightmare' coming this fall

Announced the day after the big Microsoft press event at E3, Halo Wars 2 is getting a full expansion pack later this year.

Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare is a brand-new full expansion coming to Halo Wars 2, featuring a new campaign, two new multiplayer leaders, two new multiplayer maps, and a brand-new cooperative mode, Terminus Firefight – featuring the return of the Flood!

The Flood is back, you can play as the bad guys and there's a whole lot of new, great Halo Wars 2 content coming our way in the fall. If you're keen to see more, be sure to watch Xbox Daily this Wednesday from E3 where there'll be some live gameplay.

The announcements from E3 just keep on rolling so keep it locked to Windows Central to make sure you don't miss a thing!

  • Yeah finally more single player content.
  • Wish I could get the hang of this.
  • Apparently no one told these guys what happened the LAST time the Flood was awakened...................
  • Atriox did not sound happy.
  • I knew it, I knew there must be more HW2 this year. HWaaS
  • Halo Wars 2 first needs to come to Steam to be playable on PC, because the multiplayer is completely dead on the WinStore version, so its not even worth playing anymore; or if Steam is not an option Microsoft needs to enable cross-play with XB1 players.    
  • I'm surprised they didn't feature this in their E3 conference.
