THQ Nordic confirmed they are partnering with Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries to bring Halo Wars 2 for Windows 10 to retail stores worldwide.
Dang looks like this isn't exclusive either, is there a reason to even own Xbox? Well at least it's not cancelled...
Halo Wars 2 was confirmed to have cross-play when it was first announced are you just trolling here man already have it pre-ordered now I'm playing Halo Wars 1 Definitive Edition on my PC and my Xbox One I also own a PS4 and a PS4 Pro so I got my Sony bases covered so you can't call me a fanboy but I'm thinking I can call you a troll
Just calling it like I see it, facts are facts! You make cross-play claims when first announced but offer no hyper-links!
To be fair its become redundant to own an Xbox if you're a PC gamer. The big-name exclusives are getting simultaneous PC releases on Windows 10 as Microsoft pushes the OS as a gaming platform. The original purpose of Xbox was to promote the DirectX API and to directly compete with Sony's Playstation. But even the Xbox One has shown its poor performance cant be saved by DX12 and this generation has been 2:1 PS4:Xbox ratio as far as hardware sales go.
how is this news? more like obvious
To my understanding it was never exclusive to the Xbox when it was announced I believe it was announced that it would release for both PC and Xbox One
Who would get this on PC anyway, the strategy and RTS options on PC are endless
Ok, now Halo Wars will be part of those options.
Yeah....but....its a console RTS on a PC...competing with PC RTS games. It has no hope. The first was okay in fact I like it. But it doesn't stand close to most mainstream RTSs on PC. Even alot of the older ones
RTS on PC hasn't exactly had much competition for years now, was hoping for C&C Generals 2/F2P but that was cancelled which only leaves Dawn of War 3 and if we're lucky Warcraft 4 but that won't be for years assuming it comes out.
Cancelled? It has a release date and weve known since its was announced it was going Windows 10. You must've just got the memo....
Nothing but Spam... If there was no reason to own an Xbox why do people continue buying them?
I just want to play multiplat games in true 4k on a console. I hate to see games at fake 4k going around.
Have you just come out of cryostatis? This was announced to be for pc and xbox day one. You gonna buy this for your gaming pc now?
Damn Microsoft is nothing sacred? I was sure this one would only be on XB1.
post your gaming rig specs or stop trolling
All first party games are Xbox/PC. They've been pretty clear on that since they announced it. I'm sure you are probably aware of that though.
I planned on getting this for xb1 cause I enjoyed the beta. Didn't think it would be a game that would be on PC simply cause I thought only the bigger titles would be shared. I was clearly wrong and if I cared about the game enough to do some deep research I'm sure I would have found out it was coming on PC from the start. I don't care about the game that much though. It's not a Final Fantasy or Metal Gear Level game. That's the stuff I dive deep in. It's an RTS I happened to play, like, and decide to buy. I'm sorry you guys are so on edge. And @Areswhatever why would I care to post anything to appease you? Get a life.
On edge? Just trying to enlighten you for future reference to a pretty establish business model now. Id of thought anyone who frequents N4G or other gaming sites would struggle to not of known. But now you do.
Deathtroll or whatever you're calling yourself you don't need to post anything you don't want too. I honestly don't think you have a gaming PC anywhere straight up you can put up a fight go online cut and paste somebody's build and take a picture off of some website say it's yours end of the day. stop being a troll
Good. Why anyone would want to play RTS on consoles? WTF are you thinking, Spencer?
...... Halo wars 1? My days you guys have multiplied
Yeah....I played it. Playing an RTS with a controller is ridiculous. Now if Spencer would deliver on his promise of adding keyboard and mouse for Xbox then maybe. Otherwise.....I just don't see the point.
Are you guys above serious? This was confirmed to be on both Xbox and Win 10 a long time ago, since it was announced.
They know these things. Someone has to lay the foundation for the trolling to begin...
They know it. It's just fanboys 'concerned ' acting all shocked and bothered. Their imaginary PC Rigs await this game.
I can't wait. Gears kind of spoiled us, such a graphical showcase on the PC. I am hoping this game will raise the bar though. My Titan is hungry
agreed Gears looks fantastic. You should check out Forza
Forza is amazing!
Gears looks good but there is the odd console texture here and there than can hurt the overall look (for me anyway). Horizon 3 is gorgeous too.
Forza Horizon 3 is the best racing game I have ever played. Love it.
So Gears actually is worth to try?? I know on Pc graphics looks amazing but what about story??
Story was interesting. Characters weren't developed very well but they did a good job of putting you in interesting situations. I would say as far as story goes it was second best of the series overall.
I'm actually excited for this game because I really really really really like the developer. On a side note I'm actually really anxious for a Company of Heroes 3 likely after dawn of War 3 release
What's the point of owning an xbox one if all its exclusives are coming to pc
post your specs bro
No point if you have a decent PC really. But if you only have £2-300 to play with your PC options are a waste of time. Either way you're tied to MS and the money is in software, not hardware (especially cheap consoles). It's win win. Not that a PS fan can seem to see that.
cross play is why I have an Xbox, It is hard to take your PC with you but an xbox is easy and it can be in the spare room when not on the road. I have 2 gaming PC btw. Just wondering if you want to share your spec's as I dont think most of the guys that make statements like yours have a gaming pc. Do you even own one or you just talking crap?
Here's my build. not really in either camp here but saw you asking for specs :3 Cpu is OCd to 4.5 and the gpu clockspeed is OCd by 4.5%: https://pcpartpicker.com/li...
Cos not everyone is a PC gamer. Is that really so hard to understand? Lol. You guys are hilarious....XD.
Because you can't play these games on a $200-$300 PC at Xbox settings.
If you have an xbox, I would sell that thing right now!
Nice. Enjoyed the first game. Can't wait to play this too.
MS should just make the Halo franchise a 3rd party game. Imagine all the sales on PS4. Keeping it an exclusive to make people buy their consoles is obviously not working.
