In an unexpected move, Microsoft has announced that a new Halo game will be coming to the iPhone and iPad – as well as Windows for phone and tablets, of course.
Here’s Spartan Assault’s blurb:
“Halo: Spartan Strike tells a compelling new story in the Halo universe set during the events of Halo 2 on New Mombasa in 2552. As a Spartan supersoldier in a classified ONI simulation, delve into 30 challenging missions while leading UNSC troops through cities and jungles with an all new arsenal of weapons, abilities and vehicles.”
The game isn’t a first person shooter – but is a top down affair, as you can see in the trailer above. Like the other post-Bungie Halo games, it was developed by 343 Studios.
