Halo Wars 2 makes its European debut at gamescom 2016 giving more fans the ability to try out the latest installment to the Halo franchise. Fans attending the event are the first ones to get to play the new multiplayer map, Rift on the Strongholds game mode. From Creative Assembly:
Fans in Europe will get the first look and first hands-on with our brand new Halo Wars 2 multiplayer map, Rift, on the Strongholds multiplayer mode. At the heart of this exciting new map sits a monolithic Forerunner structure that harnesses the power from the subterranean networks beneath the Ark’s surface. Whilst one half of the map is unsullied by war, the other is pitted with large breaches in the surface as the Banished tunnel downwards to plunder the core’s precious resources. Rift is a visually stunning and memorable battleground providing a huge range of cool strategic and tactical options.
