Questions about the Definitive Edition of HW

I plan ordering the Ultimate Edition of HW2. So i will be getting a code for HWDE. Am i correct to assume my saved game from HW on the 360 wont work with the Definitive Edition? Also is there any leaks that show the improvements to the DE? Will the looks of Captain Carter and Professor Ellen Anders be changed in this edition to look more like their character from HW2?

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will include improved graphics, additional achievements, and all the DLC that was offered for Halo Wars. That’s about all we know. It’s quite the vague thing. I don’t know if there will be a code or not, and I don’t know if the character models will be completely switched out. I’d guess not, but in the end it’s just a guess. I originally guessed that Halo Wars 2 would take place during Halo 2, and look how that turned out :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s quite possible that HW1 could be given a H2A treatment, with character and vehicle overhauls to better adapt to HW2, but that could be seen as a waste of resources and HW1 already looks great, if not amazing. So I bet it will just be put to 60fps, 1080p.

The hw1 will not be getting anything switched out no models or anything. just a retouch like Halo 3 in the master chief collection

Source? It’s not something I’d just assume.

I just saw the video of that. I wish there would have been gameplay in the video

It’s the same thing though…not worth getting the ultimate edition for a game u can already play bc

they wouldn’t leave out the details like that.

I watched it. It looks exactly the same as the cutscenes in the original.

If you think it’s the same thing, you are sadly uninformed. The Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will be available on PC. That’s about as different as you can get.

Now Halowars which xbox360 version has some troubles on XboxONE.
The frame rate is too low and multiplayer game mode frequently freeze when 1 of the 6 player left the game.
I am guessing that Halowars Definitive Edition remastered by using a new Halowars2 graphics engine.
UI will changes to more instinctive than 360 version.

One question is why the Definitive Edition Trailer doesn’t show any gameplays?

I’m hesitating to buy an ultimate edition :frowning:

Halo Wars DE looks to be an HD 60fps port of the first game onto the Xbox One console with all DLC. Nothing more or less

There is no announcement about Definitive Edition:(
I don’t know the reason why they don’t feature a new remastered game.
The new DLC cannot be insignificant.
I wonder if DE is only upconverted and working on Windows10 edition.

What exactly “Improved visual effects, graphics and audio” means I suppose we need to wait and find out.

“improved visual effects, graphics and audio” this confirms a remastered unless they add small touches into the cutscenes and the audio then its a huge letdown

The soundeffect of Halowars2β was very realistic.
If Defenitive Edition uses identical sound of HW2, DE will increase my eagerness to buy Ultimate Edition.
