343 Industries debuted a brand new trailer for Halo Wars 2 at The Game Awards that introduced the world to the game’s main antagonist, Atriox.

“What would happen if the wars keep going, and suddenly the existing power structure falls apart and other people move in? What happens when you stop paying the mercenaries? Sometimes the mercenaries take over,” says Kevin Grace, Narrative Director at 343 Industries.

According to the trailer below, Atriox is the first Brute to defy the Covenant and survive.

“He’s not a commander. He hasn’t had all that hard-core training in that regard. He’s an underdog, a guy who has the grit and fortitude to claw his way to the top,” explains Jeremy Cook, Art Director for Halo Wars 2. “We drew lots of inspiration from things, like Excalibur, and looking at things where the toughest are in charge and strength determines succession. If you win, you’re in charge now and you become the clan leader.”

Halo Wars 2 launches February 21st, 2017 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
