Jolly news for folks who pre-ordered Halo Wars: Ultimate Edition, as they now have early access to Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. Early Access lets original 2009 RTS fans get a taste of  Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, ahead of the game’s February 2017 launch date.

Microsoft is handing out redemption codes in waves. But apparently, there are some inconsistencies in delivery times. So if you pre-ordered the ultimate edition of Halo Wars and haven’t received your code yet, be patient. Or, it could also be lying in your spam folder, so it is advised to do a quick check.

Anyone who pre-ordered by December 14 should receive [a code] today, so keep an eye out”, wrote Dan Ayoub, head of strategy games development, on Microsoft’s news blog yesterday. “If you don’t receive your code today, don’t worry! Codes are rolling out through the coming weeks”.

After you receive the code, you can redeem it on Xbox.com and start downloading Halo Wars: Definitive Edition on PC or Xbox One. Also, this is a Play Anywhere title, as well as cross-save. To make the best of it, we suggest you get both versions.

So what does this Early Access hold? First, 343 Industries, the developers of the game, have clarified that the game is still undergoing some finishing touches. The only reason it is out for Early Access is to give Halo fans a chance to perfect their skills before the 2017 global release.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition Early Access packs fantastic visuals. Apart from that, there is support for 4K, new achievements and all of the DLCs from the original release. The game is only available as part of the $80 Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition bundle for now.

Nonetheless, it is going to be a jolly good New Year, as 343Industriess has more surprises in store for fans, be it Halo Wars 2 or its upcoming Blitz Beta.
