Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries have partnered with THQ Nordic to release Halo Wars 2 for Windows 10 in retail stores worldwide.

Both the Standard and Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 will be available at retail stores, and will also grant access to the digital version of Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere. The physical retail release of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition includes four days of early access to the game, the season pass, and a copy of Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. The Definitive Edition of Halo Wars is also playable on both PC and Xbox One via Xbox Play Anywhere.

“After working on so many titles together with Microsoft in 2016, we are stoked to start the year with another partnership. Being able to deliver such a big franchise to RTS and Halo fans alike, the opportunity to buy and own this game in a beautiful physical shape is something we appreciate a lot,” Lars Wingefors, founder and Group CEO of THQ Nordic, said.

“For fans who love to own the box, we’re excited to partner with THQ Nordic and bring Halo Wars 2 to physical release on Windows 10,” 343 Industries Studio Head of Strategy Games Development Dan Ayoub added.

The standard edition of Halo Wars 2 launches February 21st for Xbox One and PC, with the Ultimate Edition arriving a few days earlier on February 17th.
