Halo Wars 2 Achievements, Beta Rewards, and More Revealed

Halo Waypoint has updated its community with the full achievement list for Halo Wars 2. There was a total of 57 achievements revealed for a total of 1000 Gamerscore. A good amount of the achievements seem to be multiplayer related, so if you’re the kind of perfectionist that loves to grind this will be right up your alley.

Developer 343 Industries revealed earlier this week that players who participated in the Blitz beta will receive two card packs, while players who only played the first beta will receive one. Now, it’s not a huge advantage but it’s nice little present for those players who gave it a try a bit early.

Halo Wars 2 Achievements, Beta Rewards, and More Revealed

Based on beta feedback there are changes coming with the game’s release:

  • Reduced the Locust and Bloodfuel Locust DPS, health, and shields
  • Scarab can now attack units at closer range
  • Improved the responsiveness of Blitz card hand inputs
  • Improved game performance
  • Improved UI responsiveness
  • Tightened skill matching to improve match quality of multiplayer games
  • + more

343 currently has no plans to release a map editor with Halo Wars 2. Given that the story missions and multiplayer seem like they will take at least 35-40 hours to complete, this may not be that big of a deal. Plus, the season pass DLC will update the game over a span of six months and will include the following: New leader abilities, multiplayer units, blitz cards and brand-new campaign missions. It’s safe to say you won’t running out of content anytime sooner after release.

Halo Wars 2 to release on Xbox One and PC on February 21, 2017.
