Halo has always had a presence at Microsoft’s annual E3 conference, and this year, that tradition has not been broken with the announcement of Halo Wars 2’s latest expansion: Awakening the Nightmare. Officially revealed on the Xbox after-show, the downloadable content will bring about the return of a fan-favourite enemy, the Flood, and focus on the Banished and their crusade against the nightmarish parasites. The expansion will also include the addition of two multiplayer leaders, Jerome and Ripa ‘Moramee’s Arbiter, and two brand new maps. Another feature coming with this DLC expansion is Terminus Firefight, a new cooperative mode focusing on defense from hordes of enemy forces. Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare will be separate from the Halo Wars 2 Season Pass and available for $19.99 USD this upcoming fall.
GrimBrother One provides a variety of extra details on not only this expansion but future updates to Halo Wars 2 in the full article on HaloWaypoint.com.
