Halo: Spartan Assault Sets a Waypoint on Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Where it belongs

It was only a matter of time but Halo: Spartan Assault — the Windows 8 top-down, twin-stick shooter — is invading the Xbox 360 and Xbox One this December.

Developed by Halo 4 creators 343 Industries and Vangaurd Games (Gatling Gears), Spartan Assault puts the focus back on long-time enemy, the Covenant, in a new adventure that chronicles the beginning of Spartan Commanders Sarah Palmer and Spartan Davis.

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions will include The Flood as a new enemy to fight, new co-op missions, weapons, armour and all-new achievements to obtain.

Since its July release, Spartan Assault has received a rather mixed reception from critics, with a score of 71 on Metacritic. We always wondered why the downloadable game was never announced for consoles initially, and we assume the announcement is due to weak Windows 8 sales. We expect now, the game will get the attention it deserves on a platform where, you know — people actually play Halo games.

you know I like these kind off games and I like halo so this is an instant buy for me plus I never take any notice off review scores or metacritic scores because I like to make up my own mind

I'm a huge Halo fan so this will be a day one download. Wish it had already been released for the 360 but better late than never.

I just watched the trailer for it on my 360 and was curious if this was a twin stick shooter. I'm more than a little interested now knowing it is. What kind of price tag is this going to sell for?
