Halo: Spartan Assault is a top-down shooter coming to Windows 8, Windows Phone

Microsoft is bringing the Halo franchise back to the PC this Summer with Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down shooter available exclusively for Windows 8 and Windows Phone devices. Spartan Assault is being developed by Vanguard Games and Microsoft’s Halo studio, 343 Industries, and will be available this July.

Set between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4, Halo: Spartan Assault is a new chapter of the award-winning Halo universe that explores the first missions of the Spartan Ops program and dives deeper into the backstory of Human-Covenant wars. Play through the eyes of either Commander Sarah Palmer or Spartan Davis stationed aboard the UNSC Infinity as they fight never-before-seen battles against Covenant forces.

Hey Microsoft! Doesn’t the Xbox 360 controller have the twin sticks necessary to play a top-down shooter? Hopefully Halo: Spartan Assault also makes it to Microsoft’s current console (or the Xbox One) someday.
