Halo Wars 2 coming this month!
A popular Real-time strategy from Microsoft Halo Wars 2 will become available for Windows 10 and Xbox One consoles later this month. The Successor of the original Halo Wars game from 2009 is currently available for pre-order in Standard ($59.99) and Ultimate Editions ($79.99).
Ultimate edition features Halo Wars 2, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition and a Season Pass. This means that with the Ultimate Edition you will get the original Halo Wars game with enhanced graphics and new achievements. Halo Wars 2 Season Pass brings you new Leaders, Units, Blitz cards and Campaign missions.
The original Halo Wars from 2009 was an Xbox 360 exclusive, but this one was designed for both Xbox One and a PC. Halo Wars 2 for PC features improved visual effects, audio, and graphics. Gamers that own 4K monitors will be able to play Halo Wars 2 in full 4K resolution.
David Nicholson, who’s an executive producer of Halo Wars 2’s co-developer company Creative Assembly said:
“PC certainly has an advantage at this stage because we can just put a badass machine under there and that lets us just do a lot of things while we’re still optimizing,” he says. “It will obviously look amazing.” But if you do have a powerful PC, “you can do some pretty incredible things with it.”
Halo Wars 2 will require a high-performance PC configuration as you can see below.
