If you don't like using the Windows 10 Store and don't own an Xbox One but still want to play Halo Wars 2, there will be another way. THQ Nordic has partnered with 343 Industries and Microsoft Studios to release the physical retail release of Halo Wars 2 for Windows 10.

As a bonus, the "Play Anywhere" of this game means that if you buy the Windows 10 version you will get access to the Xbox One version at no extra charge.
Both the Standard and Ultimate Edition of Halo Wars 2 will be available at retail stores with high-quality packaging. The physical retail release of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition is stunning and provides fans with four-day early access to the core game, a Season Pass and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, an enhanced version of the original Halo Wars that is playable on both Windows 10 and Xbox One as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.

High quality packaging? It's about damn time, I was getting sick of those games packaged in used tissues. Whatever type of packaging you prefer, you can pick up Halo Wars 2 on February 21 for $59.99 (USD). If you get the Ultimate Edition for $79.99, you get a four-day head start beginning February 17.
