Halo: Spartan Assault to land on Xbox One this Christmas Eve

Microsoft intends to bring Halo: Spartan Assault, the latest spin-off of the popular sci-fi series, to the Xbox One in time for Christmas Day gaming.

Following the launch of Halo: Spartan Assault on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone during the summer, the latest tale of Masterchief’s exploits will finally make its way onto the Xbox One.

The game will be priced at £11.99 but those already in possession of Spartan Assault on Windows 8 or on a Windows Phone will be entitled to a £3.99 upgrade for the Xbox One incarnation.

It will be available from December 24, Christmas Eve, so you can treat yourself to an early Christmas present.

Although the game is largely the same as the Windows 8 and Windows Phone game, the Xbox One version of Halo: Spartan Assault has a new online co-op mode and a single player expansion named Operation Hydra.

As well as an array of new weapons, enemies and abilities, including the popular teleportation feature, there are thirty action-packed missions.  

Halo: Spartan Assault arrives on Microsoft’s new console running at 60fps Full 1080p HD.

Fans of the Halo franchise who’ve yet to make the leap to next-gen gaming will still get a chance to get their hands on the game.  However, an Xbox 360 version of the sci-fi shooter isn’t expected to be released until January 2014.
