The newest DLC for Halo Wars 2, a leader named Colony, has arrived. Though Colony was expected to release earlier this week on Monday the 24th, the DLC was delayed until today for the purpose of quality assurance.
Colony is the name chosen by a bond brother pair of Mgalekgolo gestalts (or Hunters, for those of you not fluent in Halo's lore), and as such, its main focus are units and leader powers based around Lekgolo (the worms that make up Hunters). Hence, Colony brings with it several new additions to the Halo Wars 2 sandbox, such as: Goliaths (Giant Hunters who ditch their assault cannons in favour of a more up-close and personal approach), Skitterers (Small turret-like machines controlled by lekgolo worms, which can attach as bodyguards to other units) and Hunter Captains (Colony's hero unit, with the ability to attract the focus of enemy fire away from its allies with a taunt).
Those who bought the Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 or have purchased the season pass will find they already own Colony. For those that don't own the DLC but would like to, it can be found on the Microsoft Store, here.
