Halo Wars 2’s launch trailer is about the game’s megavillain

Ahead of the game’s launch in two weeks, Microsoft and Creative Assembly have dropped a new Halo Wars 2 trailer featuring The Banished rogue mercenary Atriox, a bad guy who’s such a bad guy that “the whole damn Covenant couldn’t contain him”. Not even glassing the planet? Maybe they didn’t think of that, but I guess without him, there wouldn’t be much of a story to tell.

Game’s out on PC and Xbox One on 21 February. It’s also one of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere titles, so a single purchase includes the game on both platforms. Woo!
