Should note that if you don't care about the season pass and other extras, the standard version also includes both PC and X1 versions for $47.99 with Prime.

You're awesome. Thanks for this!

 

You think this will be available at Best Buy as well or just on Amazon due to the nature of how it's being published (by THQ Nordic)?

I didn't see it from best buy, No idea. I don't work for THQ, Microsof, Amazon, and is not related to the incoming administration.

You're awesome. Thanks for this!

It's available at Best Buy but you don't get the GCU discount.

Thanks, but that's just a digital code. I want the physical box + digital code.

I'm assuming based on another answer in another thread that the code will make the discs useless, but is there a separate code for the XB1 version or is it all tied together? I've never bought a PC game in my life and would only be doing this for the XB1 version so I was wondering if I would be able give or sell the PC version to someone.

It should be a single code that unlocks both the W10 and :xb1: versions of the game for immediate download.

Its one code.  The game is tagged in the window/xbox store as one item.  So when you buy it from windows digital store xbox digital store or enter a digital redemption code.  It unlocks the product for devices on PC and Xbox.  This only works for games denoted as Xbox Play Anywhere.  

 

Also if you get the disc version of halo wars 2 for xbox one. Because the disc is phyiscal, you will not have a digital code to redeem.  

 

Any DLC or season pass would also need to be only bought once.  

 

In summery, any Microsoft digital library that is part of Xbox Play Anywhere allows buy once and play on PC and Xbox One.

Hopefully more digital copies start having a physical release to get the discount. It's the biggest deterrent for digital for me, no discount

So is the remaster code in the box? No way to get it early like the other Ult editions?

Just to clarify does the 20% preorder bonus last anytime after release? I thought Amazon did a 20% off for prime members for all games within 2 weeks of release.

 

Anyone know if Halo Wars 1 will come with the game after release or preorders only?

Also, the 20% off within the first two weeks only applies to the full retail price. If the game goes on sale in those two weeks, the 20% off wouldn't apply to that sale price.

Question on this because I'm a little confused on the whole digital code/activation thing.

I have a Mac, so the PC version would do nothing for me. Does the game actually have to be installed and activated on a PC in order for me to get the Xbox One/Play Anywhere version? Or could I simply go to Xbox.com, enter the activation code, and then download on my XB1?

Just enter the code and download on your XB1.

They did as well for mine, though I was able to get Amazon to give me $16 off the digital download version as a one-time exception.   Someone else in the XBL thread said the same thing, though it seemed to take him longer to do so.

Haha glad to hear your experience was better than mine. So what's the deal now? I've redeemed the code but the Halo Wars Definitive Edition appears to just be a placeholder for a few days until I get another code. Is that right?
