The latest DLC leader for Halo Wars 2 is almost here—or rather, the whole lot of them is almost here.
Instead of a single leader, Colony is a manifestation of Lekgolo, the communal, worm-like alien lifeforms that make up the Halo series’ Hunters.
“Strange and inscrutable, the Hunter pair who identifies as “Colony” is believed to be either a representative for Lekgolo allied to the Banished or a specialized command form of the alien eel-worms,” reads the DLC leader’s bio on Halo Waypoint. “Colony defers only to Atriox and is charged with directing all Banished Lekgolo activities on the Ark, including creation and expansion of Lekgolo clusters for use in vehicles and other specialized applications.
“Though it cooperates with the Banished, Colony appears to have its own plans for the Ark. Most of its attention is currently focused on the activities near the resting place of the Forerunner keyships, missions undertaken outside the knowledge of other Banished leaders.”
Colony can control the battlefield with healing, augmenting, and attack-boosting Lekgolo-driven constructs. You can see it in action in the video above, or check out a detailed description over on Halo Waypoint.
Colony arrives in Halo Wars 2 on April 19th.
