'Halo Wars 2' (ALL) Drops Two Season Pass DLCs

Halo Wars 2 is a strategy game packed with fast-paced action, massive battles, and an all-new Halo story.

Halo Wars 2 will feature a robust, story-driven campaign and plenty of multiplayer action. While we’re not talking about the game’s story (or where it takes place in the Halo timeline) just yet, we are very excited about the way it contributes to the expanding Halo universe, and we look forward to sharing more in the future.

The last time we saw the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire in Halo Wars, they were settling in for a long cryosleep on their way home, knowing that with a little luck, they’d make it back to civilized space in one piece. Nearly 30 years later, they’re awakened to a new threat to the Halo universe and find themselves as the one thing standing between hope and annihilation. Halo Wars 2 will take you back to the Ark, introduce new heroes and villains, and deliver a new multiplayer mode that has the potential to push the real-time strategy genre forward.

Beyond the terrain and the world in which Halo Wars 2 takes place, its compliment of heroes and villains helps broaden the world. And because the UNSC Spirit of Fire and its crew are essentially in a place out of time, having been asleep for 28 years, they’ve missed all of the recent events that the Master Chief was a part of. This creates a unique setting for new players to the series, as they will be learning about the state of the universe alongside the crew of the Fire.

The penultimate payload of Halo Wars 2 Season Pass content has arrived, featuring two fun and exciting new story missions in Operation: SPEARBREAKER, and a beloved, digitally deceased but downloadably undeterred new Leader – the UNSC Spirit of Fire’s former AI Serina.

With Operation: SPEARBREAKER, players get to drop feet first into two brand-new story missions that expand upon the ongoing struggle for control of the Ark. Taking control of a hero squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, players must thwart the Banished’s latest plot to turn the tide of the conflict.

When you’re ready to dive back into multiplayer, stay calm, cool, and collected on the battlefield by taking command of Serina’s formidable frost-featured forces. No matter what your multiplayer persuasion is, Serina is an awesome new addition to the Halo Wars 2 Leader lineup that adds a new element of strategy for opponents to fend with.

Both Serina and the Operation: SPEARBREAKER story missions are available now for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as part of the Halo Wars 2 Season Pass, or available for individual purchase at $5.99 USD each. You can also purchase a special 2-pack version that includes both pieces of content for $9.99 USD.
