Halo Wars on Steam’s first online Halo game to rely on Steamworks

Might a mainline Halo game one day receive a bonafide Steam launch? Microsoft Studios tiptoed ever closer to that possibility with a Monday announcement—Halo Wars: Definitive Edition (HWDE) is coming to Steam later this week.

You’re not smokin’ something: Microsoft is indeed releasing its resolution-bumped, mouse-and-keyboard-supported version of the 2009 real-time strategy game on Steam on 4/20. The Steam version will cost $19.99. What’s more, it’s the first online Halo game to have major Xbox Live features and requirements stripped in favor of Steam’s own solutions.
