Halo: Spartan Strike announced for December release

343 Industries has announced Halo: Spartan Strike for a December release on Windows platforms.
 
The successor to the 2013 Halo: Spartan Assault, Halo: Spartan Strike is due to be released on December 14.
 
When it does launch it will be available to buy on Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and Microsoft Surface tablets, along with a special Steam edition.
 
It will retail for $5.99 (approx. £3.99) and it will offer a Cross-Buy like feature where one price gets you the game on all Windows platforms and Steam to boot.
 
There are currently no plans to bring the game to iOS or Android platforms, or for a launch on Xbox One or Xbox 360.
 
Halo: Spartan Strike is set during the events of Halo 2 and like Spartan Assault is a top-down, twin-stick shooter.
 
It will offer a wealth of improvements over its predecessor, including the introduction of the Warthog, another new vehicle called the Kestrel, the Prometheans and other tweaks. The controls have also been improved for tablet and smartphone play.
 
Unique achievements, rewards for unlockables in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 25 weekly challenges and leaderboards for Halo: Spartan Strike are also in the pipeline.
 
There are also Steam specific achievements too.
 
Gameplay time is around 4 – 5 hours as the maps have been made bigger and more immersive than Spartan Assault.
