A top-down shooter...
Digital Spy reports that Halo: Spartan Assault is coming to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It is a top-down shooter set in the Halo universe before Halo 3 and Halo 4. It will be available as a digital download in December.
The console version will have over thirty missions, a new co-op mode and the Operation Hydra expansion pack along with new enemies, weapons, abilities, upgrades and achievements. Both versions will be sold separately and the game will not support cross-platform multiplayer.
An exact release date and price haven't been announced yet.
The game was developed by 343 Industries and Vanguard Games. It follows Commander Sarah Palmer in a new story that explores the origins of the Spartan Ops program. It was originally released for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. It's tied into Halo 4, giving users the ability to earn Xp and customization items.
