‘Halo: Spartan Assault’ announced for Windows 8 devices


That rumored Halo: Spartan Assault title we read about yesterday in an rumored E3 games list? It’s finally revealed today but not as a console game, but as a Windows 8 PC, phone and tablet game.

Halo: Spartan Assault is being developed by 343 Industries in conjunction with Vanguard Games. It looks like a top-down shooter, sort of similar in vibe to Halo Wars but with different gameplay. It’ll be set in between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4. It explores the Spartan Ops program, the co-op campaign from Halo 4, and you’ll be dealing with the good ol’ Covenant again.

It’ll also have some integration with Halo 4 like earning EXP, in-game achievements, and it’ll also support some form of in-app purchases with upgrades and extra credits. Check out the trailer below:
