343 Industries and Creative Assembly are happy to announce at E3 that the newest and biggest expansion for Halo Wars 2 will be released later this year. “Awakening the Nightmare” will feature a new story where the player takes control of The Banished against the infamous and parasitic life-forms encountered in previous Halo titles, The Flood. A long requested thing from Halo Wars fans (including myself) was the ability to play as The Flood, hopefully in future expansions this faction will be included as playable but for now they are only an AI-controlled adversary.
The DLC will include all new units and army leaders for you to take control of and face off against The Flood.
Halo Wars 2‘s “Awakening the Nightmare” will be released for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC sometime in Fall 2017.
