Get hands-on with ‘Halo Wars 2′ Blitz beta Jan. 20

Here’s one last opportunity for “Halo” fans to get hands-on with “Halo Wars 2”: a final large-scale multiplayer beta that focuses exclusively on a new, card-based game mode, Blitz, and it’ll be available on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One beginning Jan. 20.

“Blitz is our new twist on RTS [real-time strategy] gameplay that combines the deck building and split-second decision making of card-based strategy play with explosive tactical combat in the Halo universe,” writes Dan Ayoub, studio head of Strategy Games Development. “Your card deck, along with your faction leader, are your greatest resources as you assemble a collection of air, ground and infantry units and seek to out-think and out-maneuver your opponents on the battlefield.”
