With this Halo Wars 2 Open Beta, there is yet another E3 2016 reveal that has been leaked early. Even with the surprise spoiled, we’re eager to download.
According to NeoGAF user Spider_Jerusalem, he was tipped by a user looking at Major Nelson’s Xbox Live profile. He noticed that he was following ” Halo Wars 2 Open Beta.” Upon checking it out, they were brought to the store entry. While this could very well be a hoax, we highly doubt it. Below is a screen-grab of the Italian version of the store. As you can see in the above images, the Halo Wars 2 Open Beta is scheduled to start June 13 and continue through June 20. It is important to note that June 13 is the same date as the Xbox Press Briefing at E3 2016. Sadly, this means that it was likely one of the surprise “available now” moments we could have had.
Still, we are eager to play the Halo Wars 2 Open Beta. This RTS really from the Halo franchise feels distinct and plays well. Not to mention, with the updated consoles, this game will really be able to show off the improved graphics.
If you can’t hold off till its E3 reveal, check out the beautiful screenshots below. For more, just check out the post of NeoGAF.
