Halo: Spartan Assault Coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One October 29, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Up to this point, Halo: Spartan Assault has been considered by many to be the only Windows 8 exclusive program that could entice people to upgrade.  Today, gamers everywhere not interested in ever upgrading to Windows 8 can breathe a sigh of relief as Microsoft has announced the game is being ported to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms next month.

What is Halo: Spartan Assault?  It is a side story which takes place between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4 and tells the story of the SPARTAN-IV unit, one of the major supporting characters from 2012’s Halo 4.  Take a look!

The Xbox versions of Halo: Spartan Assault will be redesigned specifically for the Xbox controller’s dual analog sticks.  This should be a much more comfortable control option.  The Xbox versions will also include 2-player cooperative play, the Operation Hydra expansion, and new levels featuring Halo’s most fearsome foe, The Flood.

Hopefully, both of these new versions of the game will have achievements that are compatible with Halo Waypoint.  In fact, there are several achievements in the game that unlock specific Halo Waypoint awards.

Halo: Spartan Assault is coming in December to Xbox 360 and Xbox One.  It is out now on Windows 8-equipped computers, tablets and smartphones.

UPDATE:  While both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of Halo: Spartan Assault will support cooperative play, the game will not support cooperative play across the two platforms.  So unfortunately, anyone who is playing the Xbox One version of the game will only be able to play with Xbox One players, and Xbox 360 players will only be able to play with other Xbox 360 players.
