Halo: Spartan Assault Comes to Xbox One on December 24
When it released on Windows 8 devices and Windows Phone 8 earlier this year, Halo: Spartan Assault was greeted by Halo fans with open arms. The twin stick shooter was lauded by critics and players alike for presenting a game that looked and sounded just as great as the Halo games of old while providing a top-down experience that had never been seen in the series. In fact, the only thing that was missing was the ability to play the game on your console.
That all changes on December 24 when a new and improved Halo: Spartan Assault comes to Xbox One via a digital download priced at $14.99. Not only will the game look gorgeous on the Xbox One thanks to its native 1080p resolution and smooth 60 fps frame rate, it will also feature a brand-new cooperative mode, new weapons, and the inclusion of the Operation Hydra add-on.
Best of all, fans that have purchased Halo: Spartan Assault for Windows 8 devices or Windows Phone 8 to date or purchase prior to December 15, 2013, will be eligible to purchase the Xbox One version of the game at the discounted price of $4.99. And don’t worry, Xbox 360 owners: Halo: Spartan Assault will be available on your console in January 2014.
