Halo Wars: Definitive Edition

The Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, a remastered and upscaled version of Halo Wars for this generation, will be coming to Steam on April 20, the end of this week.

The page is currently live on Steam, though there’s no real indication of a price yet. The page also includes system requirements.

The system requirements are as follows:

Minimum:
OS: Windows 7 SP1 64-bit or higher
CPU: Intel Core i3 or Equivalent
RAM: 4GB
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4200 Nvidia GeForce GT 740M AMD Radeon R5 M240
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 12GB available space

Recommended:
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i5 or Equivalent
RAM: 8GB

DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection

Halo Wars is, of course, the immediate (for a given value of “immediate”) predecessor to Halo Wars 2, which came out back in February.

It focuses on the crew of the UNSC ship Spirit of Fire near the beginning of the Human-Covenant War, as the ship and her crew fight to stop the Covenant from taking control of a fleet of Forerunner ships.

The Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is going to be going into new territory with a Steam release. The original game was a console release only, which made it one of the first real console real-time strategy games.

The game being released to Steam and Windows allows it to join its sequel on both PC and consoles, though unlike Halo Wars 2 it’s likely not going to be a part of the Xbox One Play Anywhere program.

However, even if you want to play it on the Xbox One for the nostalgia value, hopefully the game has been competently ported over to the PC. That way, you can play Halo Wars: Definitive Edition just like you would play any other RTS game.
