343 Industries have announced that a new Halo game is making it's way to the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms this June.
Halo: Spartan Assault brings Halo's rich storytelling and best-in-class action, audio and graphics to touch-based devices for the first time in franchise history.
Set between Halo 3 and Halo 4, the game is a top-down shooter that has been designed specifically for use with touch screen devices, or a mouse and keyboard.
Equipment load outs can be customized with Halo's iconic arsenal of armor abilities and weapons, including the Magnum, Assault Rifle, Spartan Laser and more. Fan-favorite vehicles, such as the Wraith, Scorpion, Ghost and Grizzly, can also be commandeered to even the odds against the Covenant onslaught. Halo: Spartan Assault's campaign is developed for replayability, with competitive leaderboards, weekly challenges, difficulty modifier Skulls, and more than 40 earnable in-game Achievements and Medals. You can even progress your Spartan Career in Halo 4 by playing Halo: Spartan Assault to gain experience points (XP), all-new Achievements and emblems, and more integration features will become available after launch.news.xbox.com/2013/06/games-ha...
