This is a real-time strategy game in which players build and command military units in order to defeat opponents and complete combat objectives. From a ¾-overhead perspective, players collect and manage resources to mobilize/upgrade military units (e.g., infantry, armored vehicles). Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain. One cutscene briefly depicts blood spilling out of a stab wound; another scene shows bloodied injuries on a soldier's face. A handful of cutscenes depict soldiers shooting or stabbing enemy aliens. The words “b*tch” and “a*s” appear in the dialogue.
Halo Wars 2 delivers real-time strategy at the speed of Halo combat. Get ready to lead Spartans, Warthogs and other classic Halo fighting forces in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield ever.
