Halo Goes Mobile with Halo: Spartan Assault
Microsoft and 343 Industries today revealed Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down action shooter available this July for $6.99 only on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
Set between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4, Halo: Spartan Assault explores the first missions of the Spartan Ops program and dives deeper into the backstory of Human-Covenant wars. Play through the eyes of either Commander Sarah Palmer or Spartan Davis stationed aboard the UNSC Infinity as they fight in never-before-seen battles against Covenant forces.
With 25 unique missions, the single-player experience allows you to compete against friends in Leaderboards or hone your skills with Weekly Challenges. Replay the missions to collect more than 40 in-game Achievements and Medals.
For fans who already have a prospering Spartan career aboard the UNSC Infinity, Halo: Spartan Assault lets you earn experience points, all-new Achievements, and emblems for your Halo 4 Spartan, with additional integration features available after launch.
In addition, 343 Industries has teamed up with Dark Horse Comics to create Halo: Initiation, a 3-part comic series which reveals the story of how Commander Sarah Palmer became a Spartan-IV and leads directly into the missions of Halo: Spartan Assault.
