Today is the day, you can play Halo: Spartan Assault on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. We already gave you the link for the Windows Phone version, which only Verizon customers can enjoy here in the United States. But you can definitely get your Spartan Assault on with Windows 8, nobody is stopping you there. Read past the break to get the link for the Windows Store!
Halo: Spartan Assault is one awesome game. We’ve had a chance to play it a handful of times the past few months and can honestly say we’re stoked for it. It’s out for both Windows Phone and Windows 8, you’ll need to buy the game on each platform if you want to play it. It goes for $6.99 and is worth it for the high quality game you get with future updates that will extend replay value. What’s doubly cool is that your game state will save and sync across your various devices running Spartan Assault.
So what if you’re not a 110% diehard Halo fan, which version should you get? My personal opinion is that the Windows 8 version is the one for you. Which you can now download. Why Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8? Well both are great, but the keyboard support, larger touch screens, and future Xbox 360 controller support make this version the one to get for variety. And if have a device like the Surface Pro you’ll get 60 frames per second in gameplay versus the 30fps in Windows Phone / Windows RT / Atom processors.
Anyways, you can head to the Windows Store to get Halo: Spartan Assault. It will cost you $6.99 (totally worth it).
Thanks for the link Austin A!
