These sorts of livestreams have been growing in popularity where the developing team of a highly anticipated title will “hit the button” so to speak and talk about their accomplishments in its development. Not to mention chances to win swag and codes from officially hosted giveaways.
And this would be a doozy to miss. In fact, missing it would be quite an accomplishment considering the sheer amount of social media they will be broadcasting on. The event will kick off on February 16 at 4 p.m. PST for Xbox One, Beam, Twitch, Facebook Live, and YouTube.
We’ll keep our eyes out for more info as the launch of Halo Wars 2 grows nearer.
