Xbox just brought Halo Wars 2 to real life.

Unaware of the test ahead, fans were led into a Halo-themed military command centre where a conventional demonstration quickly turned into an onslaught of action and chaos, as the frenetic nature of battle was captured with UNSC unit commanders requesting orders.
 
The new recruits quickly realised that they were in the hot seat, tasked with saving their own lives and their units, with no other tools other than their quick strategic thinking. Some panicked at the situation; others began to embrace it. The experience was inspired by the Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta that's available now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.

Download Halo Wars 2 Blitz beta now until Jan. 30 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC’s ahead of the worldwide game launch on Feb. 21.​
