We haven't had any news on Halo Wars 2
since the beta ended shortly after E3 about a month ago. Players have been in the dark about where the story was going and what had happened. Astute viewers noticed the game was probably centered around the Ark, but who the Banished are and where they came from remained a mystery.
Atriox. Who is he?
Today's new ViDoc answers a few of these burning questions. In the video, we get to see Atriox, the leader of the Banished, absolutely destroy a squad of Spartans who proved themselves to be formidable combatants in Halo Wars
. Not only does he possess immense strength, but he's also a brilliant tactician. 343 hopes these qualities will serve to make him a compelling villain.
Meanwhile, the crew of the Spirit of Fire have just awoken after 28 years of cryo-sleep. They don't know where they are or what's going on the world. Their AI is frantic with worry. They've just come up against Atriox for the first time and came away bloody. What role do they have to play in the universe?
Halo Wars 2
will launch on February 21st for Xbox One.
