If you didn’t see during yesterday’s XBOX Presentation at E3, the Halo Wars 2 trailer was shown. Within it, we saw more of the Brute Baddie that we’ve caught glimpses of over the past few months.
Well now we know his name. It is Atriox.
Atrium is the leader of a new group called “The Banished”. Taking a guess here, this off-shoot group are those who stay with the Covenant after the great Schism, but did NOT align with Jul ‘Mdama. Hence they were banished from both the Covenant and their home worlds’ armies. I say homeworlds because we also now know that the Banished are made up of several former Covenant races. Brutes, Elites, Grunts, and Hunters are confirmed. Any others outside of these has not yet been officially revealed.
Here is the official trailer fro Halo Wars 2!
Here is the official Campaign trailer showing new units and familiar gameplay!
