Halo: Spartan Assault now available for all 1GB Windows Phone 8 devices as Verizon's exclusivity expires

Halo: Spartan Assault is Microsoft's attempt to bring the popular IP to the mobile device. Selling millions of copies on consoles and the PC, the Halo series has accumulated many fans and we're set to see that base number grow as more titles are released.

Available on Windows Phone 8, the game has been restricted in the US to just Verizon Wireless customers through a 30-day exclusivity deal. This has now ended.

Taking place in-between Halo 3 and 4, the third-person action game provides hours of entertainment within the universe you know and love. Here's a quick look at Halo: Spartan Assault if you've not yet checked it out yet:

We've checked the store and can indeed confirm that we're able to download HSA on hardware running on US networks other than Verizon. You can download Halo: Spartan Assault from the Windows Phone Store for $6.99. Requires Windows Phone 8 and 1GB RAM (an update for 512MB devices should be not too far off).
