Halo Wars 2 live action trailer

Following the release of the epic launch trailer for Halo Wars 2 last week, it wasn’t clear how the Xbox team and developer 343 Industries could continue to build up the hype for the upcoming RTS game. Fortunately, the two new live-action trailers that have been released today are quite refreshing, poking fun at the protagonists’ obsession for strategy plays. Xbox Wire Editor Mike Nelson noted:

We find the two faction leaders – Atriox, leader of the Banished and Captain Cutter of the UNSC Spirit of Fire – plucked out of their intergalactic conflict and engaged in a “War of Wits” in what can only be described as relatable struggles. In each trailer, both Atriox and Cutter use their strategic military minds to fight it out over the ownership of an airplane armrest or haggle over the price of a used car. Only the strategist who best knows his enemy will win.

Both trailers are pretty funny, and observant watchers will see that Captain Cutter of the UNSC puts his Lumia 950 to good use at some point. Let us know in the comments if these latest trailers are a good way to promote the game ahead of its worldwide release on February 21.
