Halo: Spartan Assault is now available for Windows 8, as this new launch trailer notes. The top-down shooter from 343 Industries and Vanguard Games is available to download first on Windows Phone 8 for Verizon Wireless customers. Then from August 16th, the game will be available for any Windows Phone 8 service providers.

Spartan Assault sees you entering a training simulation aboard the UNSC Infinity, as you relive some of Spartan Sarah Palmer's greatest moments on the battlefield across 25 missions. The game features a story sandwiched between the events of Halo 3 and 4.

Halo: Spartan Assault is available worldwide for £4.99/$6.99, and features integration with Halo 4. Certain milestones reached in Spartan Assault will unlock achievements and other bonuses in Halo 4. Check out the Halo: Spartan Assault launch trailer below.

Should be able to; it only needs 512MB of RAM.

So is this really not coming out on XBLA, I know nobody who owns a windows phone, so surely this is a bad move.

It would be nice if this was available for iOS devices. But, then again, that's up to Microsoft. But yes, an Arcade version would be nice.

would love if this was available to a wider variety and not just windows phone as me and a bunch of my friends are refusing to buy a windows phone just to play this so in future please put this type of thing on XBLA for 800msp or whatever the cash equivalent of that is

This is for both WP8 and W8. Been available for hours, only had a quick go but it seems quality especially for a W8 game.

At first I was disgusted by this, but it actually looks like fun.

@3,5,7 - It's a mobile game, made by Microsoft, intended for mobile devices (phones and tablets) running Windows. Putting it on XBLA or iOS would kind of defeat the point.

I like how you can dual wield on a tablet game but you can't in halo 4

It would be cool to have this on XBLA. As a Halo game, it should at least be on Xbox alongside mobile.

@17 alot of people have windows phones... More and more each year actually... Less people are buying an iphone as the years progress as iPhones well... Don't progress.. At all they just get longer and shinier.

so no they don't NEED to release it on anything other than their own operating system.

by the way, for people in the UK i have this with no issues it seems like the Verizon 30 day thing doesn't apply to us!
