Prepare to Engage in Laughter with Halo Wars 2: War of Wits Live Action Commercials (VIDEO)

With the upcoming launch of 343 Industries’ next big project, Halo Wars 2, Microsoft and 343 have taken an alternate route in showing us just how cunning and brutal the fearless commanders of Halo Wars 2 really are. These live action commercials show the brave actions of UNSC Captain Cutter as he strategically deploys all of his wit and cunning against the reckless brutality of General Atriox’s vicious onslaught! Check out the Halo Wars 2: War of Wits commercials for yourself!

Such unexpected brutality! These are truly fierce and cunning warriors of the highest degree! Honestly, this has to be one of the most imaginative and hilarious things I’ve ever seen from a Halo advertisement. But seriously though, Halo Wars 2 looks like it is going to be one amazing adventure.

Halo Wars 2, of course, is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 hit real time strategy (RTS) game based in the Halo universe, Halo Wars. Players control the forces of the United Nations Space Command, or UNSC, as they fight against the brutal onslaught of the Covenant’s forces while they attempt to achieve total dominion over the Galaxy. Utilizing the elements of real-time strategy, Halo Wars 2 will be bringing back that “command and conquer style” to the Halo franchise while continuing the story of the brave heroes from the original Halo Wars. Though the first Halo Wars game was adjacent but not directly connected to the main FPS (First Person Shooter) Halo Franchise (i.e. the Master Chief Collection, Halo Reach, Halo 3: ODST), the sequel promises to create links between the Halo Wars narrative and the main saga of the Halo franchise -opening doors for potential crossover in the future.

All of this and more can be enjoyed first hand when the game launches  on February 21st. Of course, just in case you missed at the end of those amazing commercials, if you pick up the Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 you can start the fight a few days early on February 17th. Both editions of the are available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title making your one time purchase playable both on Xbox One and PC through Windows 10. In addition, Xbox is offering Halo Wars 2 in a bundle with the new Xbox One S for $349.
