Halo: Spartan Assault Coming to Windows 8 Devices Next Month


Microsoft and 343 industries have announced  Halo: Spartan Assault which will be available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 in July.

Halo: Spartan Assault will bring a Halo video game to touch-based devices for the first time. It will come providing an accessible, pick-up-and-play experience for fans and newcomers alike.

It is set between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4 and explores the first missions of the Spartan Ops programme and dives deeper into the backstory of the 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.

There will be 25 unique missions packed with action and intensity and the single player experience will allow 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. Those who already have a Spartan career on the UNSC Infinity, Halo: Spartan Assault will let players earn experience points (XP), all-new Achievements, and emblems for your Halo 4 Spartan, with additional integration features available after launch.

343 industries and Dark Horse Comics have also come together to create Halo: Initiation which is a three-part comic series which reveals the story of how Commander Sarah Palmer became a Spartan-IV and leads directly into the exciting missions of Halo: Spartan Assault.

A trailer has also been released. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
