Appearing on stage tonight at The Game Awards 2016, 343 Industries boss Dan Ayoub revealed that the Halo Wars 1 Definitive Edition will launch this month for some.

People who preorder Halo Wars 2's $80 Ultimate edition will receive early access to the first game's Definitive edition, starting on December 20. A new trailer for Halo Wars 2 was also released, focusing on the new bad guy Atriox. Take a look in the video embed above.

After a delay, Halo Wars 2 comes out in February 2017 for Xbox One and PC. You don't have to wait until then to play the game, however, as a beta will be held before launch.

The beta was strange and felt like a strong departure from the original. Hope they made it Halo Wars 1 style again. This is a tough buy.

The beta will be a requirement in my purchase. I absolutely loved Halo Wars 1 in total(other than a few OP tactics like the Gauss Warthog spam), but Halo Wars 2 just looks odd. Maybe it's just from the gameplay I saw, but it worries me on how this game may turn out. Story looks brilliant though.

Either way I'm interested, loved the first and hope to love the second.

@Smosh150: It's Creative Assembly, and unless something went horribly, horribly awry... well, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Even at their worst, they're pretty damn good.
