Halo Wars 2 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title that brings real-time strategy to the Halo Universe. During the campaign you lead Spartans, Warthogs, and other classic Halo forces in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy known as the Banished.

Halo Wars 2 came out a couple of years ago but it's still receiving great post-launch support. Today, 343 Industries released a new map called "Fort Jordan," named after one of the programmers. The developer said, "The ever-talented Matt Jordan... in the Halo community, has been working on a special project for quite some time. With help from folks across the community... we are excited to share a blast from the past, reimagined in Halo Wars 2 for you to wage wars on... Fort Jordan... this is a spiritual successor to... Fort Deen from the first Halo Wars."

Fort Deen was an incredibly popular map in the first game so it's great to see that it's finally available in Halo Wars 2. Hopefully it will bring some users back because it's been a while since the title released.
