We have a good news for all Xbox One users out there: the open beta for Halo Wars 2 will be available on your consoles starting June 13 until June 20.

As we reported at the beginning of June, Halo Wars 2 will indeed be playable during E3 2016. Microsoft initially announced Halo Wars 2’s appearance in one of its weekly Halo blog posts, where it also hinted that other features may be revealed during the trade show aside from a playable Halo Wars 2 demo.

This multiplayer game clocks in at 13 GB and can support up to six players. The developer also promises the game will offer an all-new Halo story to Xbox One and Windows 10. Halo Wars 2 will bring back interesting memories for some players since this is is the sequel to the game that redefined real-time strategy on consoles.

In this game, Master Chief and Cortana return to Earth to stop the onslaught of the Covenant, a terrifying and aggressive alien civilization whose only purpose is to destroy the human race. Halo Wars 2 is a faced-paced strategy game with massive battles and intense gameplay.

Developed by Bungie, Halo 2 sees the player not only resuming the role of the Master Chief, humanity’s best defense against the unyielding Covenant forces, but also assuming the identity of the Covenant Elite known as the Arbiter. Players wield dual weapons, employ previously undiscovered Covenant armaments, and pilot new vehicles as they battle intelligent enemy AI and all-new alien opponents in exotic environments.

In-game pictures are also available, offering an extra-glimpse at the upcoming game. Fans will be happy to see that all the updated vehicles look great, are more solid, and can wreck havoc inside enemy lines.
