Although no details have emerged yet regarding the Halo Wars 2 Firefight Expansion, we imagine it will involve a more traditional wave defense mode akin to other Firefight iterations in Halo’s past. Blitz Firefight launched with Halo Wars 2—a PvE mode focused around the game’s card-based Blitz multiplayer.
