‘Halo: Spartan Assault’ Coming to Xbox One on December 24By: Sean Patterson - December 9, 2013
Earlier this year Microsoft announced that Halo: Spartan Assault would be making its way to Xbox One and Xbox 360 in the near future. The top-down shooter had originally debuted on Windows 8 and Windows Phone devices.
Today Microsoft finally revealed that Spartan Assault will be hitting the Xbox One just in time for Christmas on December 24. The title will be available for download on the new console for $15. Xbox One owners who have already purchased the game on a smartphone or via Windows 8 will be able to pick up the console version for just $5. Xbox 360 owners can look forward to downloading the title sometime in January.
In addition to the Spartan Assault seen on smartphones, the console version will come with plenty of updates and extras. The Xbox One version will have new weapons to use, a new cooperative gameplay mode, and the Operation Hydra DLC pre-installed.
Since the Xbox One has gotten such bad press lately for its games running at lower resolutions than their PlayStaion 4 versions, Microsoft made sure to point out in its announcement that Spartan Ops will be running at 1080p at 60fps on the Xbox One.
