In an official blog post two weeks ago, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One will get the new Halo Spartan Assault game via digital download on December 24th. The Xbox 360 will subsequently receive the same game in January of next year. Well, Microsoft has decided to roll out the game a little bit early as the game is now available for digital download for those of you on Xbox One.
“Halo: Spartan Assault is a fast paced top-down shooter set during the timeline between “Halo 3” and “Halo 4,” progress your Spartan career as you engage in over 30 exciting Campaign missions using many of favorite Halo weapons, vehicles and armor abilities. Team-up on Xbox Live and fight with a friend against waves of the nightmarish Flood in the all-new online co-op multiplayer mode,” the game description reads.
You can head over to the Xbox Game Store to snag Halo Spartan Assault. The game runs for $14.99, but if you already purchased the game for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 before December 15th, you can snag the Xbox One version at a special discounted price of $4.99. The game comes in at 2.53 GB in size.
Xbox 360 owners who have been itching to play this game will have to wait a bit longer, as Microsoft confirmed that this game wont arrive until 2014.Further reading: Halo, Xbox One
