'Halo Wars 2' Xbox One: Demo Features Campaign Mission, Blitz Firefight Mode Access
"Halo Wars 2" is already scheduled for a Windows 10 release but the demo gets to the Microsoft Xbox One console first. Note that the demo includes a campaign mission along with access to the Blitz Firefight mode. In the meantime, "For Honor" is still said to be making it big in the gaming community which may prove to be a challenge for "Halo Wars 2".
No Matchmaking Yet
The "Halo Wars 2" developers packed in "The Signal" campaign mission in the Xbox One demo. Furthermore, gamers may fight against AI enemies with the demo using a pre-built deck. Matchmaking is yet to be revealed.
Moreover, the "Halo Wars 2" developers have already responded to complaints about the game launching without ranked multiplayer. Apparently, the feature is still in the polishing stage and is slated to come soon. The feature may also launch alongside bug fixes. However, the release date for the ranking feature is yet to be announced.
"Halo Wars 2" also carries forth just enough of the series' beloved element to make "Halo" fans feel right at home in the game, Gamespot reported. On the contrary, the reviewer Kallie Plagge noted that it may not be the case in the long run. Plaggie noted that while it is palatable for gamers used to FPS games, the game is said to run out of steam just when things become more challenging and interesting.

In other news, "For Honor" is still the chart topper in the UK Charts. This is despite Ubisoft dropping by 72 percent in sales of physical copies of the game. On that note, this week is said to be an average week for "Halo Wars 2" despite the demo release.
The "Halo Wars 2" still takes the second entry in the UK Charts followed by "GTA V". It should be noted that the original "Halo Wars" game is said to have done better in its first week compared to "Halo Wars 2". However, the market is said to have changed since the game was released, Games Industry.biz reported. Watch the Xbox One gameplay below:
