Microsoft has announced that its subsidiary studio, 343 Industries, is making a spiritual successor to last year's Halo: Spartan Assault in the form of Halo: Spartan Strike.
Halo: Spartan Assault
Take the fight to the Flood and the Covenant, in a top-down perspective, as Halo: Spartan Assault is finally released for the Xbox 360.
Halo: Spartan Assault is a top-down, dual-stick shooter (think Robotron/Super Smash TV). Taking place between the events of Halo 3 and 4, there are still plenty of Flood and Covenant leftovers that Master Chief must have missed that you need to clear out. Originally released on Windows 8, this is the first console version of Spartan Assault ever released. As we are patiently waiting for Halo 5 on the Xbox One, we're just itching for an excuse to have a DMR in our hands. Luckily, Spartan Assault's jump to the Xbox One proves that even though you're not playing as Master Chief, you can still be a Spartan.
The twin-stick shooter previously only available on Windows Phones will make its way to the Xbox One just in time for Christmas.
