Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is coming to Steam on April 20th, with support for Windows 7/8.1. Now users with older Windows can enjoy the game, outside of the Windows 10.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the real-time strategy classic, Halo Wars, updated to run natively on PC.

Set early in the iconic war between the Covenant and UNSC – made famous by the Halo FPS games – Halo Wars: Definitive Edition provides a unique angle on the war while bringing new heroes to the battlefield. Control large Halo armies and direct them in action-packed warfare.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition includes improved graphics, new achievements and all the DLC from the landmark game. Experience the epic campaign or compete in online multiplayer battles with armies of powerful Halo forces at your command.

Network play for this product is exclusive to Steam. Cross-play with Windows Store versions of the same game is not supported.

The Halo Wars: Definitive Edition also comes with enhanced PC visuals, PC oriented controls and all of the original game’s DLC, though this Steam version will be the first time that this game will be available as a standalone title. Previously this game was only available with Halo Wars 2’s Ultimate Edition, which came with a premium price tag.
