Earlier this year, Microsoft released Halo Wars 2 – the second real-time strategy (RTS) game in its blockbuster shooter series. Moving from behind the eyes of soldiers on the ground, the game shifts to a top-down view of combat, encompassing the full scale of conflict across the Halo universe.
It now appears that a retail re-release of Halo Wars 2 is just around the corner, with "Halo Wars 2: Complete Edition" – a version of the game bundling together all post-launch content. Listings for the new edition have appeared on Amazon, GameStop and Swiss retailer World of Games, despite an official announcement yet to come from Microsoft.
According to listings, Halo Wars 2: Complete Edition will be priced at $59.99, bundling together the base game, the season pass and the upcoming "Awakening the Nightmare" expansion. Store pages point toward the package being available on September 26, 2017, on the same day the new release hits digital storefronts. This version of the game is expected to hit Xbox One and Windows 10, with those purchasing digital copies seeing the benefits of Play Anywhere.
Halo Wars 2's developer, 343 Industries, has previously received criticism over the exclusion of "Awakening the Nightmare" from the season pass offerings. Instead, opting to sell the content separately for $19.99, those who purchased the "Ultimate Edition" at launch will need to pay out extra for this latest expansion.
