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?
