Blitz is a brand-new mode in Halo Wars 2 and, if I’m being completely honest, it looks pretty freakin’ awesome. It’s one of those cases of “I didn’t ask for it. I didn’t know you could do it, but I ain’t mad. In fact, I’m pumped.” The tried-and-true RTS gameplay is given a unique twist with some Hearthstone-looking cards that provide additional attacks, power-ups, etc.

Players will be able to build a deck and bring it into battle, allowing for endless ways to compete against your enemies and countless strategies to solidify your victory. The open beta for Blitz will run from Jan. 20th-30th, so you can get a head-start at devising new strategies against your friends and enemies alike!

Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think about the changes coming in Halo Wars 2!
