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.
