Halo: Spartan Assault coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One in December

That didn't take long: twin-stick shooter Halo: Spartan Assault is coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Microsoft announced on Halo Waypoint today. The Windows 8 and Windows Phone exclusive which launched in July will release as a digital download on Xbox Live this December.

The console versions add an online co-op mode and missions, more weapons and abilities, and the Operation Hydra single-player campaign expansion for free.

Spartan Assault blends Halo's trademark wide open spaces full of enemies, allies, and secrets with the fast-paced action of a top-down shooter. It depicts Spartan Sarah Palmer's historic battles against the Flood and Covenant, framed as a training device for Spartans-to-be between Halo 3 and Halo 4.

This is the Halo you were waiting for on Xbox One, right?

    The big-question is: if we already bought the Windows 8 version, can we get this new version for free?

    If Mircosoft really wants to take Halo into a new genre, they should hire the guys who are doing the Sins of the Prophets overhaul/mod and give them a shit ton of money, interns, and new techy machines. Seriously those guys are doing an amazing job and are keeping everything lore friendly to the Halo universe while using the awesome mechanics of Sins of a Solar Empire
