New Leader “Colony” Coming to Halo Wars 2

A recent vidoc published reveals a brand new leader for Halo Wars 2, along with plenty of new units and powers. Teased during Morgan Kinsano’s panel at PAX East, the new leader is a Hunter colony, known as just that, Colony. Colony will come with a plethora of new units, including a massive Hunter unit known as a Goliath, and a super-unit that can draw enemy fire and soak damage known as a Captain. New powers including a living barrier, which is as the name says, a set of barriers made up of Hunter worms, as well as a vehicle buff which embeds them with Hunter worms. The Colony leader will be releasing this month, and is available through the Season Pass if you own the deluxe edition, but can be bought normally.

There is a lot more information on Colony that can be found in the official vidoc on Halo’s YouTube.com.

Halo: Community Update – March Madness

The Halo World Championship has come to a close in a thrilling conclusion this past weekend, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of things to recap. OpTic Gaming took the championship title and a stunning Legendary Emblem trophy last Sunday with a 4-0 score. The Halo Championship REQ Pack also returned this time around with the Athlon Champion armour set, and plenty of skins. Morgan Kinsano recently released with a host of new fire-based units, and has proven resourceful in the Halo Wars 2 sandbox. She’s available right now for Season Pass holders and separately as well, and Halo Wars players can expect the next leader sometime in April.
