Great news for fans of the Halo series: Microsoft rolled out the new Halo: Spartan Assault game. You can get it from the Windows Store right now for $6.99 and play through 25 action-packed missions on your touch-based, Windows 8-powered device.

It was back in June when Microsoft introduced Halo: Spartan Assault, a new touch-based top-down shooter for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. And to get us all interested in the game, Microsoft provided an interesting video trailer and a few exciting details.

First the trailer



And now the details:
  • Story – this is a new chapter in the Halo Universe, a chapter that explores the first missions of the Spartan Ops program and gives more backstory to the Human-Covenant conflict. If you played Halo 3 and 4, then you need to know that this new game is set between the events of Halo 3 and 4.
  • Gameplay – you can play as Commander Sarah Palmer or Spartan Davis, who are stationed aboard the UNSC Infinity. Over 25-action pached missions you get to battle against never-before-seen Covenant forces.
  • Controls – the blend of touch and console-like controls were designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. And you can also add flexibility to the mix if you consider that you can also use a keyboard and the mouse on a Windows 8 PC.
  • Halo 4 Integration – you can earn experience points, all-new Achievements, and unlock emblems for your “Halo 4” Spartan career. More integration features will be announced in the future.
  • Social – Leaderboards for competing with friends, Weekly Challenges for honing your skills, more than 40 in-game Achievements and Medals.
  • Purchases – you can purchase credits and spend them on boosts, unique weapons, and armor abilities.
  • Availability – Halo: Spartan Assault will be available for Windows 8 PCs and tablets and Windows Phone 8 mobiles.
That was back in June. It is now July and the news is that the new Halo: Spartan Assault game was rolled out to the public. The game was published on the Windows Store. You can now get the newest third-person shooter video game from the Halo series for your Windows 8-powered device for the low price of $6.99.

Additional information on the game is available on the official Halo: Spartan Assault page.
