In the latest Halo Community Update, a new comic series titled Halo: Rise of Atriox was announced. The first issue of the 5-part miniseries is expected to release on August 2, 2017, with each of the consecutive issues releasing at some point after that.
As its name suggests, Halo: Rise of Atriox shows the rise to power of Atriox, the Jiralhanae warlord who leads the Banished and serves as the main antagonist of Halo Wars 2. Issue one opens with him leading his Jiralhanae (Brute) brethren in an assault against a UNSC outpost. As the series progresses, readers will watch Atriox become the leader of the Banished, from his humble beginnings as one of many thrall in the Covenant's ranks.
Halo: Rise of Atriox will be going more in-depth into Halo lore previously only glimpsed in cutscenes. For those interested, it can be preordered here.
