Update: The game will cost $20 in the United States and will be priced similarly elsewhere. If you’re a fan of strategy games, you should give Halo Wars: Definitive Edition a try despite its simplistic nature when compared to other titles. Remember, the game was designed for consoles so that’s why it lacks some of the complexity. However, it’s still a lot of fun and features a spellbinding story.
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is a great game and it’s finally getting the standalone release everyone wanted. According to the official Halo Twitter account, the game will launch on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam on April 20. The only way to play Halo Wars: Definitive Edition beforehand was to purchase the expensive Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition. We don’t have any word yet on price but it’s not expected to be in the territory of a new game. Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the real-time strategy classic, Halo Wars, updated to run natively on Windows 10 and Steam. The game also supports 1080p 60 FPS visuals on Xbox One.
