Halo Wars: Definitive Edition Sees Standalone Release

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition Sees Standalone Release

Microsoft announced that Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will be getting a standalone release this week. PC and Xbox One owners will be able to grab the remastered RTS, previously only available to those that picked up Halo Wars 2: Definitive Edition.

From the Steam page:

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the real-time strategy classic, Halo Wars, updated to run natively on PC. 

Set early in the iconic war between the Covenant and UNSC - made famous by the Halo FPS games - Halo Wars: Definitive Edition provides a unique angle on the war while bringing new heroes to the battlefield. Control large Halo armies and direct them in action-packed warfare. 

The game also carries the Xbox Play Anywhere tag – meaning buying it on one platform gives you access to it on the other. If you grab the game on Steam however, the feature isn’t applicable. Network play is also limited across versions; Microsoft platforms can play together, but Steam owners will have their own separate playerbase.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will be available to purchase on Steam on April 21. As of the time of writing this article, the standalone release isn't on the New Zealand Xbox Store.

Unexpected, but I have no faith in MS releasing many more of their PC titles on Steam.

True Spartan Assault has been on there for years, and spartan strike, something which i've never heard of,
it seems strange only these games i've never or barely heard of are there, and not the massive moneymakers.

I mean there isn't any reason they aren't there.... Other than a console needing it's exclusives to sell.

I Really hope that release date is just a placeholder.

There was that AMD Vegas Trailer that featured Halo 3 Art, so there still might be hope for a Halo 3 PC release since its been 10 years since that game came out.
