Hotfix (April 24th)

Hello! We hope you had a great weekend playing Halo Wars: Definitive Edition here on Steam.

We have another hotfix release today that addresses a few more issues the team has been tracking since release:

  • We’ve updated Multiplayer session browsing to be searchable worldwide. Previously, players weren’t seeing games registered outside of the region set in their Steam client. You’ll now see all sessions globally regardless of your region.
  • The game will now notify you if the Steam Overlay is disabled when you’re trying to use functions that depend on the Overlay (i.e. viewing user profiles and inviting friends).
  • The GameConfig.dat is now more robust against bad data, which should help eliminate a crash on launch for a small number of players.
  • We’ve also added a -safemode flag to startup, which will ignore reading the GameConfig.dat if you’ve selected settings your PC doesn’t support. This will allow players to launch the game and revert settings if needed.

We’ll monitor the rollout of this update and we’re looking forward to seeing the impact on Multiplayer sessions.

As always, thank you for sharing feedback and please do let us know if you encounter issues. If you do experience a problem or issue, please try to include as much detail as you can (PC specs, OS, and if you’ve been able to reproduce the issue, how you’ve done so).

Thanks!

Thank You and a Hot Fix

First off, a huge thank you to everyone for such a warm welcome around the launch of Halo Wars: Definitive Edition on Steam! We're thrilled to be here and greatly appreciate your support.

Speaking of support, we’ve been monitoring community feedback closely since launch and we’ve just released a hot-fix to address a few issues that have been reported by players.

The hotfix moves Universal CRT to App-Local deployment, so users should no longer have to manually install VC redists. It also removes a dependency on Windows Media Foundation, which was affecting players with Windows N editions.

We’re aware of a few other issues and are working diligently to resolve them – further updates are on the way.

As always, please keep the great feedback coming!

Thank you
