Halo: Spartan Strike Announced as Spiritual Successor to Spartan Assault

By   /   Oct 15, 2014

343 Industries announced today Halo: Spartan Strike, a top-down twin-stick shooter that’s a spiritual successor to last year’s Halo: Spartan Assault.

The new game starts with the events of Halo 2 in New Mombasa and then transitions ahead five years into the war against the Prometheans. Players will have access to a wide range of weaponry and gadgets, including some memorable ones like the Warthog vehicle that players can take out for a spin.

According to 343 Industries, the new “refined controls” with improved virtual joysticks will grant added precision when aiming. A 25-week schedule of revolving challenges was also announced, as the ability to unlock rewards for use in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Halo: Spartan Strike is scheduled for release on December 12 for all Windows platforms – PC, Surface and Windows Phone. It will be priced at $6 and purchasing one will get you access to the game across the rest of the systems.

Unlike Halo: Spartan Assault, this new installment will not feature any microtransactions.
