During this week's Halo Wars 2 live stream, we'll give away a copy of the game, and others during the chat!
This week, we're going to be playing Halo Wars 2, which is a real time strategy game from the minds behind the Total War series, Creative Assembly. It's available now for Xbox One and Windows 10 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, and it's pretty great.
Our MGL live streams take place every week on Thursdays, at 4 PM ET (1 PM PT, 9 PM GMT). You can find the start time based on your location and time zone in our event announcer.
Tonight, we'll be giving away a copy of Halo Wars 2 to a lucky follower of our Mixer channel LIVE during the stream.
- We'll use a raffle system to make sure we're giving keys to people who aren't AFK.
- You must be following the channel to be eligible. The raffle will ignore users who aren't following!
- We'll give out additional Xbox game codes during the show.
- We'll give out Halo Wars 2 towards the end for followers only!
Halo Wars 2 is a real time strategy game set in the Halo universe, built by 343i and Creative Assembly. It follows the tale of the UNSC Spirit of Fire, as its crew wrestles Atriox's Banished for control of galactic superweapon.
Halo Wars 2 sports piles of content, including a beefy single player campaign, classic RTS game modes, and an addictively fast-paced Blitz mode, which riffs on MOBA gameplay and card deck building. Come check it out with us on Beam tonight!
For now, all you need to do is head to our Mixer channel at Mixer.com/windowscentral and follow! When the stream begins, jump in on the live chat.
We'll give away a key for Halo Wars 2 towards the end of the show.
We'll also field some questions from the audience, so, even if you already own the game, sign up for Mixer and come pester Dan about the Surface Phone!
For those curious, we're aiming for a 90-minute air time, but honestly, we have no idea how long it will go. So grab a drink and join in on the fun to find out!
