Microsoft today announced that the company will be releasing a new mode for Halo Wars 2 titled “Blitz” on the 20th of January. Blitz, more those unfamiliar, is a new game card-based game mode for Halo Wars 2 which introduces a “new twist” on the real-time strategy gameplay. Microsoft explains:

Blitz is our new twist on RTS gameplay that combines the deck building and split-second decision making of card-based strategy play with explosive tactical combat in the Halo universe. Your card deck, along with your faction leader, are your greatest resources as you assemble a collection of air, ground and infantry units and seek to out-think and out-maneuver your opponents on the battlefield.

Here’s a trailer for the upcoming game mode:

Blitz will be available for Halo Wars 2 on both Windows 10 and Xbox One. Once again, the new game mode will be available on January 20th.
