Recently, a lot of fresh Halo news, which include the information about several projects in this franchise, have appeared. Thus, the latest screenshots of the upcoming Guardians instalment and the new gameplay video of the original and the upgraded Halo 2 versions, which will be the parts of The Master Chief Collection, have been published. Besides, another project in the shooter series - the new Halo: Spartan Strike game - has been announced by Microsoft. And first of all, we will, probably, start from its details.
So, according to the official reports, the Halo: Spartan Strike game will be a follow-up to the Spartan Assault one, which was released last year. It will be a top-down shooter for the mobile devices and the PCs with Windows 8. Twenty-five exclusive missions and the weekly quests will be at the players’ disposal. The gamers will also be able to compete with their friends for the first place in the Xbox and Steam Achievements leaderboards.
The future shooter is already priced at $5.99. The new Halo: Spartan Strike game will be launched on December 12th - a month after The Master Chief Collection’s release. As for Android, iOS, Xbox One and Xbox 360, the company doesn’t have any plans to port this project on the mentioned consoles and mobile platforms for the current moment.
