Halo: Spartan Assault is New Game For Windows 8 Touch Devices

by on June 4, 2013

Halo is synonymous with the Xbox brand, but the next game in the series isn’t coming to Xbox One. No, this time it’s all about touch.

Halo: Spartan Assault has just been announced by Microsoft and will be available this July on Windows 8 smartphones and tablets. 343 Industries and Vanguard Games have been looking after development of this top down shooter which will bring some clarity to the events after Halo 3 and before Halo 4. Commander Sarah Palmer and Spartan Davis are the two playable characters in the game which delves into the history of the Human-Covenant wars.

Dark Horse Comics have also been assigned the task of creating Halo: Initiation – a three part series that will set the seeds for Halo: Spartan Assault.

You may be clamouring for Halo 5, but be patient. E3 is next week and chances are that there will be a trailer of some sort at the event.
