Halo Wars for PCs land early for Halo Wars 2 pre-orders

For a real-time strategy "spin off" of a first-person shooter game, you'd think that Halo Wars would be a perfect fit for PC gaming.

Even better, you could already be playing it now before everyone else. That is, if you put in a pre-order for Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition as well.

Rocket League gets recreated inside Halo 5

What do you do when there's a massively popular game, but it hasn't been released for your console of choice? Usually, there are just two options.

Microsoft is looking into Xbox One’s ‘Halo: Reach’ issues

Xbox One owners hoping to rekindle their fondness for Halo: Reach were disappointed to find the game runs very poorly on Microsoft’s latest console.

3D print your own custom Halo 5 Spartan

Eventually, I'll move onto other games and forget about those characters. But what if you could save them, and display them for all to see? Well, Halo 5 players will be treated to that ability.
