Brand new Halo title headed to Windows devices

Now that all has been revealed we can confirm that the Halo Bootcamp listing was in fact a reference to an upcoming top-down shooter on Windows 8 devices that carries the Halo name (and by extension world, characters and forms of committing genocide presumably).

The game shall be called Halo: Spartan Assault and, as stated above, will let you blast aliens from a top-down perspective on Windows 8 PCs, Windows Tablets, and Windows phones.

Set the between Halo 3 and Halo 4 Spartan Assault will take on the role of Spartans Commander Sarah Palmer or…Davis (perhaps his first name is “Spartan” and we’re reading this wrong). You’ll make your way through various battlefields in a fashion much reminiscent of Halo 4’s Spartan Ops mode.

You’ll have access to all of the iconic Halo weapons and vehicles through the game’s unlock system, augmented by the Halo series’ token game-changing skulls. This system will also be persistent across platforms, although you’ll have to buy the game on the various devices separately.  If you can’t be bothered, or you’ve got more money than sense you can buy the upgrades for your account and make the game easier.
