Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries are working with THQ Nordic to bring a physical release of Halo Wars 2. This is great news for those who love to collect games and build up their game library with the physical version of games.
Both the Standard and Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 will be available at retail stores, and will also grant access to the digital version of Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere. The physical version of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition will get a few extra bonuses as well such as four days of early access to the game, the season pass, and a copy of Halo Wars: Definitive Edition.
“After working on so many titles together with Microsoft in 2016, we are stoked to start the year with another partnership. Being able to deliver such a big franchise to RTS and Halo fans alike, the opportunity to buy and own this game in a beautiful physical shape is something we appreciate a lot,” said Lars Wingefors, founder and Group CEO of THQ Nordic.
“For fans who love to own the box, we’re excited to partner with THQ Nordic and bring Halo Wars 2 to physical release on Windows 10,” 343 Industries Studio Head of Strategy Games Development Dan Ayoub added.
Halo Wars 2 is set to launch February 21st for the Xbox One and PC. The Ultimate Edition will be released a few days earlier on the 17th.
