Hot off their Fable announcement, Microsoft has announced Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down shooter coming to all Windows 8 devices.
The game takes place between Halo 3 and Halo 4 and is being developed by Vanguard Games and 343 Industries. According to the announcement you will “Play through the eyes of either Commander Sarah Palmer or Spartan Davis stationed aboard the UNSC Infinity as they fight never-before-seen battles against Covenant forces.”
Here is a rundown from the press release of what to expect:
Although the game does look good, I do wish it was on a console as I currently do not own any Windows 8 devices, surely this game could also work as a dual joystick shooter on the 360 as well. It seems that Microsoft is making a big push for people to but Windows 8 as if they wanted the game to be successful then they would have released the game on iOS and Android devices as well.
Check out the trailer above to have a look at the game and let me know in the comments your thoughts about Halo: Spartan Assault.
Halo: Spartan Assault releases this July on all Windows 8 devices for $6.99.
