Halo Wars 2 gets a 17GB demo

Halo Wars 2

A lot of people are sitting on the fence with Halo Wars 2 on PC. For many, an RTS game designed for console fills the mind with doubt. Well, now you can try before you commit. 

Check out our list of the best strategy games for more tactical titles. 

The demo, available on Windows 10 via the Microsoft store, weighs in a 17GB, so it’s hefty. It gives you access to both the opening mission of the single-player campaign, as well as Blitz mode – a strange hybrid of card game and RTS.

You might think that’s a big download for a demo, but the game itself recently got a performance patch that weighed in at almost 10GB.

It’s meant to be a decent game, according to our 7/10 Halo Wars 2 review. You can now see if your opinion aligns with our reviewers, and you don’t even need to spend a penny.
