During E3 week, Microsoft announced plans to release Halo Wars 2
DLC that went off the established path of the season pass. At Gamescom, Microsoft has now revealed a release date of September 26th.
Called "Awakening the Nightmare,"
it's a true story DLC that adds a new campaign, two Banished leaders and a cooperative mode called Terminus Firefight. When the expansion launches, there will also be two free additional multiplayer maps available to everyone, regardless of DLC ownership.
"Awakening the Nightmare" will be US$19.99 and is not included with the season pass.
