If you're psyched for the upcoming launch of Halo Wars 2, Microsoft and 343 Industries are set to stoke that hype a little further with an official launch celebration on February 16. You'll be able to stream the event live, where you can check out live gameplay, developer interviews, giveaways, and much more.

The livestream will officially kick off at 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST) on February 16th, just ahead of the game's February 17 early access launch for Ultimate Edition buyers. Halo Wars 2 is set to launch for everyone a few days later on February 21. If this is anything like a similar event that took place for the launch of Gears of War 4, you can probably expect to tune in via a slew of platforms ranging from YouTube and Beam to even Twitch and Facebook Live.

  • I liked the first game alot but I doubt if I'll get this one at this time, I have a very big backlog of games to catch up on. I will be watching it closely and hope MS has a hit with it.
  • I said I'd never pre-order a game again since the Sim City and Aliens: Colonial Marines debacles. But...PRE-ORDERED!
  • Sounds like fun!!
  • One of the best releases this year. Such diversity in MS exclusive lineup!
