Halo: Spartan Assault Coming to Xbox One This Christmas Eve


343 Industries and Vanguard Games have developed a special Christmas Eve present for Xbox One owners – Halo: Spartan Assault. This surprise release will be the first appearance from this popular game series on the Xbox One. Previously released on PC, this third-person shooter features a “top-down” perspective, 25 single player missions, five “Operation Hydra” missions, additional content, and achievements.

Halo: Spartan Assault will cost approximately $15.00 and will also release in January 2014 on the Xbox 360 (not this month as previously announced).

Halo: Spartan Assault is an original story set between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4. Players control the human soldiers Edward Davis and rising Commander Sarah Palmer as they fight the alien Covenant and a new enemy called the Flood. Graphics for this game will run natively at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.

The single player mode expands nicely with an online cooperative multiplayer mode while composer Tom Salta adds a 27-song music soundtrack. Microsoft Game Studios will unleash the surprise release of Halo: Spartan Assault through XBox Live on December 24, 2013. Happy Holidays!
