If you live in New Zealand, the livestream airs on Feb 17 at 1pm NZT. For those living in North America, the livestream starts on Feb. 16 at 4pm PST. You can watch the stream via Xbox One, Beam, Twitch, Facebook Live and YouTube. 

Halo Wars 2 releases on February 21st, 2017 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. If you get the Ultimate Edition of the game, it will be available for you to play on February 17th, 2017.
