Halo: Spartan Assault, the mission-based action game based in the famous Halo franchise world, has landed in the Windows Store and is available as a limited-time exclusive to Verizon Wireless customers. The game will be available to all beginning August 16, but U.S. Verizon customers using Windows Phones like the Nokia Lumia 928 can download the app now.
Spartan Assault breaks the mold of Halo's first person shooter history and instead introduces an overhead action game in which players shoot down waves of enemies. The game features 25 missions and focuses on a story that tries to plug-in gaps of Human-Covenant wars and the Spartan Ops program.
A Windows Phone handset with at least 1GB of RAM is required to play Halo: Spartan Assault. Microsoft says that a lower-specced version compatible with devices that have only 512MB RAM will also be available August 16. The game retails for $6.99.
