After Seven Years Microsoft Launches Halo Wars For PC

The game will be free for those who have pre-ordered the digital copy of Halo Wars 2.


Halo has been the killer title for Microsoft's Xbox gaming console. The First Person Shooter was well received by the gamers that this franchise has clocked in over $5 billion revenue. Apart from trigger happy games, the franchise also features a strategy game Halo Wars. Released in 2009, it was an Xbox exclusive title. For years, the PC gaming community has been asking Microsoft to release it for PC. Finally, after seven years, the software giant is rolling to the PC version Halo Wars.

The game will be free for those who have pre-ordered the digital version of Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition. In its press release, Microsoft cheekily mentions that the game will be ideal to sharpen their skills in preparation for the next game. The original Halo Wars has a single player campaign and multiplayer. You can compete or assist your friends by choosing skirmish or co-op modes. For those not in the know, Halo Wars 2 is expected to hit the stores in February, 2016.
