Strategic Options DLC Coming To Halo Wars

After months of waiting, some new content is finally going to be released for Halo Wars. The downloadable content is going to be called “Strategic Options” and will feature some new multiplayer game modes and also some new achievements. Four new achievements worth 100 gamerscore and then three new multiplayer game modes.

The three new game modes are:

Keepaway : A capture the flag type game mode that has players getting three different flags scattered around the map.


Reinforcement : A game mode in which people won’t get control over the units that they have becuase the units will be given to you in waves.


Tug of War : Not much is known about this game mode, but from the title it seems to be a game in which both teams have to try and take control over something.


The DLC also has new achievements which are:

  • “One and Done” (30 points): Score the winning point in a game of Keepaway against Legendary A.I.’s
  • “Pull Hard, Pull Deep” (20 points): Win and never trail in a Tug of War game
  • “Freak on a Streak” (20 points): Gain at least 15 population from a single wave in a Reinforcement game
  • “Living Loving Bug” (30 points): Obtain a Scarab during a Reinforcement game

No price has yet been given, but if this downloadable content is coming out, then it will most likely be at the same time as the recently announced title update. It might actually make me go back to the game.
