Back in January, THQ Nordic announced its partnership with Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries to bring Halo Wars 2 for Windows 10 to retail stores via a physical packaging release. The time is now. It is out. The train left the station. We’re pleased to report a very happy ending, and a generous spread across retail.
In addition, purchases of the physical retail release of Halo Wars 2 on Windows 10 PC will grant digital access to the Xbox One version via Xbox Play Anywhere.
Both the Standard and Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 are available at retail stores right now. The physical retail release of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition is stunning and provides fans with four-day early access to the core game, a Season Pass and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, an enhanced version of the original Halo Wars that is playable on both Windows 10 and Xbox One as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
