Halo Wars Definitive Edition goes live tomorrow for those who have pre-ordered the ultimate edition of Halo Wars 2. In its latest weekly blog post, franchise overseers 343 Industries said that download codes for the remastered RTS classic should begin rolling out now. The process will be done in batches and may take up to seven to 10 days. If you want to be the first to experience Halo Wars on Xbox One and PC, you better secure your pre-order now.

Halo Wars Definitive Edition Drops Tomorrow

Aside from the usual assortment of graphical upgrades, the Halo Wars Definitive Edition provides a ton of new content. Those on PC will also be treated to some platform-specific features like 4K resolution support. Here?s a full list of all the key features:

  • ?Optimized to run natively on Xbox One and Windows 10
  • ?Improved visual effects, graphics and audio
  • ?Up to 4K resolution on Windows 10 PC
  • ?Includes all DLC from the original game
  • ?Brand-new achievements
  • ?Bonus Content

Released in 2009 by the now defunct Ensemble Studios, Halo Wars was a surprising success as both a console RTS and extension of the Halo brand. Right now, there?s no way to purchase the Halo Wars Definitive Edition as a standalone release. Anyone looking to relive all the great RTS action of the original will have to pony up $80 for the Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition bundle. Granted, there is a whole lot of content included. The $80 price tag also gives you complete access to the Halo Wars 2 season pass. Still, it is a little disappointing that fans who only want to play the original have no way to buy it separately.
