The official launch trailer for Halo Wars 2 has dropped on the Xbox YouTube channel. It doesn't show gameplay, but it's very dramatic and there's a lot of explosions. There's also a shot of big bad Atriox crushing a helmet in the palm of his hand, which doesn't bode well for humanity. That's where you, the master strategist player, come in though. 

Halo Wars 2 is out on February 21 for Xbox One, PC and PS4 just kidding.
