That’s pretty short notice, but I’ll take it!
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, the enhanced port of the Xbox 360 exclusive Halo themed real time strategy game, will be launching on Steam come later this week- being made available to the larger part of the PC gaming population at long last.
The game was originally released on Xbox 360 back in 2008. It was released last year as a remaster for Xbox One and PC, but it was a Windows 10 exclusive game, being sold exclusively through the Windows Store. This will be the first time that the game is made available on a non Microsoft platform- for many PC gamers, this will be a bittersweet moment, as they will get to play the swan song of darling developers Ensemble, the guys who brought us the beloved Age of Empires series, at last. The Steam version of the game will use Steamworks for multiplayer, meaning no Cross Play with the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions.
If you would rather not wait till later this week, you can always pick it up on one of those platforms now.
