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.

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.
