The Xbox 360's original in 2009 releases its surprise sequel, the "Halo Wars 2", and will be fully launched this February on Xbox One. Unlike the past release, fans now will be surely pleased to know that Halo Wars 2 can be played on keyboard and mouse on their PCs, too. The Halo Wars 2 physical release for PC was announced by Microsoft earlier this month.

"Halo Wars 2" launches in full this February 21, 2017, to be exact. On the other hand, people who will buy the $80 Ultimate Edition can start playing on February 17. As Polygon stated, Microsoft Xbox Play Anywhere program is where this game is taking its place. Getting an access to the other platform for free can be achieved by buying the game digitally on one platform of the Xbox Play Anywhere, a powerful platform by Microsoft that makes the game playable on PC. All progress is available on each platform, including saves and achievements.

According to IGN, players who want to get an early "Halo Wars 2" on their hands must try the upcoming "Halo Wars 2" Blitz beta in an upcoming beta on Xbox One and PC which started last January 20. Most players who had played single and multiplayer modes in both versions prefer its precision and ability to move and interact quickly on PC. "Halo Wars" is one of the most successful game in bringing the real-time strategy style gameplay to the precision of a console controller and limited inputs, followed by "Halo Wars 2".

In the next chapter of "Halo Wars", players will find a lot of familiarity as of that in the past eight years. Players should probably keep an eye on this one, that is because "Halo Wars 2" is shaping up to be something pretty unique. As the release date rolls out to February 21, 2017, Xbox promises that they have more on "Halo Wars 2".
