Creative Assembly and 343 Industries’s Halo Wars 2 got an exciting new cinematic trailer today, which featured Atriox, the game’s villian.
His name is Atriox, a Brute enslaved by the Covenant who eventually rose up against his masters and became a legend. His rebellion inspired the birth of The Banished, a savage army of mercenaries and killers now on the brink of acquiring the most powerful weapons platform the galaxy has ever seen. The only things between Atriox and his prize are Captain James Cutter and the crew of the USNC Spirit of Fire. Outgunned and long past any hope for reinforcements, Cutter’s survival depends on how quickly he can master the first law of the battlefield: Know your enemy.
You can watch the trailer below. Halo Wars 2 releases for Xbox One and PC on February 21, 2017.
