Halo Wars 2 will have 'a completely new way to play a RTS' in a mystery game mode
343 Industries Studio Head Dan Ayoub told an audience at the PAX West game convention this past weekend that the upcoming real-time strategy game Halo Wars 2 for the Xbox One and Windows 10 will have a mode that will give players a very different RTS gameplay experience.
Dualshockers quotes Ayoub as saying:
No other info on this mysterious game mode was revealed. However, the Halo Wars 2 panel did show off some footage of the first single-player campaign mission in the game, as posted by Giuseppe's Gaming on YouTube.
Halo Wars 2, which is being co-developed by 343 Industries and The Creative Assembly, is currently scheduled for release on Feb. 21, 2017. It will be a Xbox Play Anywhere title, which means people who purchase the digital version of Halo Wars 2 on the Xbox One can get the Windows 10 version for free, and vice versa. However, Halo Wars 2 won't have cross-platform multiplayer, at least for its launch.

I wish the video had included where they talked about comparing it to StarCraft because that's my benchmark for RTS. I'm really curious about this on PC. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
