Microsoft has finally announced
the new DLC for Halo Wars
and it looks pretty solid. Halo Wars:Strategic Operations
will add three new multiplayer modes and three new achievements. Here are the three new multiplayer modes straight from the release:
- Keepaway Mode: This is the Halo Wars adaptation of "Capture the Flag." Teams battle it out to capture a free-roaming Forerunner Sentinel to score points before the other team. Capture three sentinels to claim victory.
- Tug of War Mode: This mode is all about having a stronger army than your opponent. Defeating enemies is essential, but success is determined by a combination of the army, buildings, and resources left standing in the end.
- Reinforcement Mode: All active battle units are provided in successive waves. Adapt to their tactics and use the ever-changing set of units to outwit and outlast the enemy.
No word on pricing yet but this has the feel of premium DLC so expect something north of 800 points. I'm guessing we'll get more info at E3. Thanks to Larry
