Just finished the Campaign.

It's very short, I think around 7 hours or so on Normal difficulty. The ending caught me by surprise as I felt like there would have been another mission or two.

Story was really good and the cutscenes were knock-out.

I think multiplayer is going to have to be really good because Campaign left me hungry for more.

I reckon there'll be DLC, hopefully for free like Halo 5.

Played mission 3 last night and I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'm just so bad at it, though. :lol: :fp:

Free maps I reckon.

Season pass does have campaign so more than likely will pick it up.
Grow your war chest with the Halo Wars 2 Season Pass. The Season Pass delivers regular updates that span more than six months, including: New Leaders with abilities that change the course of multiplayer matches, new Units that add to your multiplayer arsenal, new Blitz cards to collect and take into battle, and new campaign missions that expand the Halo Wars 2 story.

Mission 8 (Hold The Line) can go strawberry float itself! :lol:. Jesus Christ, the difficulty spike here is insane. From googling it seems I'm not alone in my thinking.

I'm tempted to switch down to Easy to get past it.

Why do you change 'post subject' to your username?

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

I think it's something to do with Chalkie's phone. It is a bit odd to see "Chalkitdown" emblazened as the main heading :lol: .
