Only a few days before launch, Microsoft have gifted Halo fans with the launch trailer for Halo Wars 2, the highly anticipated RTS sequel to Xbox 360's Halo Wars. 

The trailer provides us our first real look at Atriox, a beast so bad "the whole damn Covenant couldn't contain him," even at the height of its power. 

Its pretty clear from the trailer that the odds are stacked against our protaganists and its up to you, the player, to guide them through and help them out. 

The incredible trailer can be seen below and you can pick up Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One and PC via your favorite games retailer or online through the Windows or Xbox Store on February 21st.
