In today’s market, physical releases of high-profile games have often taken a backseat to digital distribution platforms such as Steam and Good Old Games (GOG), but THQ Nordic has nonetheless teamed up with Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries to produce and promote physical copies of Halo Wars 2, which releases on February 21st, 2017.

Purchasers of Halo Wars 2 will have two options, either the standard release of the game, set to retail at $59.99 USD, or, for an extra twenty dollars, the Ultimate Edition, which comes with a Season Pass for the game, a remastered version of the original Halo Wars, and, as an extra reward, is purchasable on February 17th, a full four days earlier than the digital and Standard Edition release dates.
