Halo Spartan Assault is coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One

I'm a huge Halo fan for the story, not really the multiplayer any more. I was disappointed to find this was a Windows Phone exclusive since months prior I got the shitPhone 5 and I have Windows 7 so couldn't play it in either way. Now they announced today the Halo Spartan Assault is coming to digital downloads for both consoles in December.

https://blogs.halowaypoint.com/Headl...-Xbox-360.aspx

Who else is excited?

Edit:: Find more info https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-US/g...spartanassault

I'm so pumped!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy that this will be available for both the One and 360. There was no way I was going to buy some crappy Windows anything just to play this game. I'll probably wait until the beginning of next year when I pick up a Xbox One to get the game.

Very cool! I'll definitely be picking this up for the Xbox One.

Does it have Co-Op?

EDIT: IT DOES!

Nice. Being as it's a twin-stick shooter (and twin-stick shooters are a dime-a-dozen on XBLA) it was only a matter of time until they ported it over to consoles.

Also the article says the "Operation Hydra expansion that delivered an action-packed addition to the single player campaign." Hopefully that means it's added in for free and not as an extra DLC with a price tag. It also says there will be all new co-op missions meaning they're new since it's co-op or all new in general for the game coming to consoles.

This should've been on XBLA from the get go. Microsoft probably wanted to dangle a carrot in front of the faces of Halo dorks like me and say "Hey, get a Windows 8 device! Pleeeaase!"

Now it'll be available on the 360 and the One 5 months later? Pfft. F that.

Yeah. I don't play too many twin sticks but a recent one many people know about would be Dead Ops arcade from the first Black Ops.

Great game on Windows Phone, no doubt much better with a controller.

I like completing games, and as an extension I like completing series. I've completed Halo: CEA, Halo 2 (PC), Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and I've started Halo 4. I've considered playing Halo Wars, and Marathon: Durandal. At this point, I'm just a little burned out on Halo. So no, I'm not that excited.

...Yet. I'll get my wind back. Just give me a sec.

Wasn't about to get a windows phone or windows 8 so this is good news to me. I hope this is a solid game as well. A good twin stick shooter is always good fun.

I only wish that they had Halo 2 on the console as well (I know that it is available on the PC but seeing as the servers can close any day I really don't want to risk it at this point).

Still, getting "Halo - Spartan Assault" on the console is great news!

I doubt it but it would be nice if you buy it for one console and then download it for free on the other one.

This is great news, I am a big Halo fan and the fact this gives us some background and story before Halo 4 is fantastic, add to that that we get the full game with all the DLC included, with some more missions and the ability to play is Co-op means it's a day 1 download for me

I'm looking forward to playing this on Xbox, I was going to be getting a new PC with Win8 anyway, but I'll postpone that for a while. As a Halo fan it felt like a punch to the chest that the game was Windows 8 Exclusive, but at least now I won't have to buy a phone or PC just to play Halo.
