Microsoft has some good news for real-time strategy fans: Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will soon be available as a standalone game.
Previously, the Definitive Edition was only available for players who bought the Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition. Everyone else had to make do with the 2009 original—or, on PC, make do with nothing at all. Now, though, the remastered version is headed to the Xbox Store, Windows Store, and Steam. Players will be able to grab it as early as this Thursday, April 20th.
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition features improved graphics over the original Halo Wars, and adds in its own extra achievements. It also comes bundled with all of the original game’s DLC, adding to the enhanced version’s value.
Microsoft also threw together a quick trailer for this standalone release, but given that the remaster has been out since December and the game itself is eight years old, don’t expect to see any shocking new footage or anything.
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition supports the Xbox One play anywhere feature, as well, so you can pick it up on either Xbox One or PC through the Windows Store and get the other version at no additional cost.
