Strategic Options DLC Coming to Halo Wars

By Jason Wadsworth


It was announced today on the Official Halo Wars Community Site blog that DLC will be coming to the game. This downloadable add-on sports the moniker “Strategic Options,” and will add three new game types to the multiplayer and skirmish modes as well as four new achievements for a total of 100 gamerscore.

The new modes will include:

  • Keepaway – Here, teams compete to capture free roaming Forerunner Sentinel unit “flags” to score points and win the round
  • Tug of War – In which teams are scored based on the accumulated units, buildings, and resources that are left over after the enemy has been defeated
  • Reinforcements – In this mode, unit production is disabled and players will receive units in waves

The new achievements are:

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

No announcement has been made yet about when the DLC will be available, or how much it will cost.
