Microsoft has just released the Definitive Edition of Halo Wars in Early Access. Halo Wars is coming for the first time to the PC, is exclusive to Microsoft’s Windows 10, and is currently available to all those who have pre-ordered the digital version of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition.
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition features improved graphics, new achievements, and all of the DLC created for the landmark real-time strategy game. In addition, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition comes with a new multiplayer session browser in place of the legacy matchmaking system. This allows players to create and join their favorite multiplayer, skirmish, or co-op campaign games quickly and easily on their preferred platform.
Dan Ayoub, Studio Head of Strategy Games Development at Xbox, said:
“As a die-hard PC RTS player, I was impressed with how well the genre’s traditional keyboard and mouse controls translated to a controller. When we started to work on Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, we wanted to make sure that the experience still shines and that the game looks better than it did seven years ago. However, what’s most exciting to me is finally bringing that experience to PC. Having Halo Wars on PC has been something the community has asked for since the game launched so many years ago, and it’s surreal that it has finally happened with Halo Wars: Definitive Edition.”
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is set to launch in February alongside Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition.
