Halo Wars 2 won’t be released until early next year, but that hasn’t stopped the game’s development team from honing in on a gripping story and worthwhile characters.

Set twenty-eight years after the its predecessor’s conclusion, Halo Wars 2 mixes familiar characters with a whole new challenge. In a mini-documentary video, the minds behind Halo Wars 2 break down the general story beats of the upcoming game while teasing some new information about its setting, characters, and the seemingly insurmountable odds that players will be up against.

Though it’s set in the Halo universe that millions of gamers have grown to love, Halo Wars 2 seems to take a much different approach to its narrative structure. Where mainline Halo games want to wow players with explosive set pieces and dazzling firefights, Halo Wars 2 uses its Real-time Strategy sensibilities to spin a tale about duty, orders, and survival.

If it all comes together remains to be seen, but something seems to tell me that Halo Wars 2 might have something interesting to say.
