A new leader is available in Halo Wars 2

We have a surprisingly sudden announcement to share. A new leader is available in Halo Wars 2, one that I think fans are definitely going to love. It’s none other than Sergeant Johnson of the original trilogy!

Take a look at his powers and units in this trailer below:

Here’s the official description given on Halo Waypoint:

Sergeant Johnson favors a strong defense backed by heavy bipedal killing machines: Siege Turret Drop and Bunker Drop extend his fortifications, while EMP MAC Blast and Mech Overcharge give his combat walkers an upper hand in critical battles. But that’s not all, the Corps has seen fit to issue Sergeant Johnson the Digging In Deep advanced power, letting him construct all structures on existing bases (excluding turrets) for free. Oh, and he can also get up close and personal with the Banished by leading from the front lines in the Green Machine, his personalized HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL MARK I[J] Armor Defense System.

Sergeant Johnson joins Kinsano and Colony as DLC leaders for Halo Wars 2. As with the others, he’s yours to download if you have the Season Pass. If you don’t however, he can be purchased separately. If you haven’t grabbed the game yet, it’s on sale in this week’s Deals with Gold. However, if you’re still not sure about whether or not to try it, you can always read our review here.
