Microsoft launches Halo Wars: Definitive Edition on Steam

The war is coming out of the confines of Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will hit the Xbox Store, Windows Store and Steam PC game service on Thursday, April 20, according to developer 343 Industries. Previously, you could only play this version if you owned the Ultimate Edition version of Halo Wars 2, which debuted for PC and Xbox One in February. Breaking this version of the original game, Microsoft is giving a wider audience the opportunity to try out updated images and native support for Windows and Xbox One.

This is also the latest sign that Microsoft does not completely abandon Steam as a service to sell its first person PC games. Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is compatible with Xbox Play Anywhere, a feature that allows you to buy a game once and play it on PC, as long as you get it through one of the Microsoft digital stores. But that feature does not work if you buy it through Steam. But that’s the only thing that does not work.

“RTS fans on Steam will be happy to know that Halo Wars: Definitive Edition includes full support for Steam Achievements as well as a server browser, where anyone can create and host a game so others can search and join,” commented Community manager 343 Industries Jarrard wrote on a blog.

And of course, many fans will love this game on Steam and will not lose compatibility with Xbox Play Anywhere, and Microsoft will not hog the game to keep it as a treasure exclusively for their own platform.
