Halo: Spartan Assault Coming Home for the Holidays on Xbox One and Xbox 360


No shocker here: Halo: Spartan Assault, that top-down twin-stick shooter released over the summer on Windows 8 PCs, phones, and tablets, is jumping over to consoles in time for Christmas.

The Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of Halo: Spartan Assault will be released via digital download this December. In addition to more than 30 campaign missions, here are the features you can look forward to only on Xbox:

– Play longer than ever in a new online Co-op mode, and watch each other’s backs with all-new Co-op missions

– Engage in Operation Hydra, the expansion from the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 game that brings mystery and a chilling addition to the single player Campaign

– Wage war against a persistent and overwhelming enemy – encounter the Flood for the first time in Halo: Spartan Assault

– Go in strong with an expanded arsenal that brings you more weapons, more armor abilities, and more upgrades – it’s the ultimate Spartan Assault experience!

It’s a shame Microsoft has not yet unified its digital download marketplaces as this would’ve been a great title to introduce some form of cross-buy functionality. As it stands, if you want to play Halo: Spartan Assault on multiple platforms, you’re going to have to pay full price for each standalone version. Cross-platform online multiplayer between Xbox One and Xbox 360 also will not be supported.
