In a recent Halo Wars 2 update on Xbox One and Windows 10, 343 Industries made a number of game content improvements, adding 2v2 War crossplay and removing the non-crossplay 3v3 War from Xbox One’s playlists. 343 Industries wants to make Halo Wars 2 100% crossplay enabled so you can play with friends on Windows 10 and Xbox One.

The Season 11 balance update was released on July 18, 2018 and added new content based on community feedback. Daily Login Blitz Packs are now awarded each day you play. UNSC vehicles like the Warthog, Kodiak, and Jackrabbit got slight increases and decreases to DPS, health, cost and build times.

Halo Wars 2 community members discovered a bug in the jackrabbit that decreased the LOS when you picked a leader power for Jerome. A new line of sight was added to the spotter drone to fix the Jackrabbit bug. Jackrabbit also got a damage boost to increase the damage it does to other scout units.

In addition to modifications to UNSC marines and vehicles, the Banished and Leaders received similar updates, full list of updates is available here.

Halo Wars 2 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so buy it once and play it on Xbox One and Windows 10.
Halo Wars 2: The Complete Edition is available now for $59.99.
