Halo: Spartan Assault Info Drop

By Jonathan Barnes,
Strap in, Spartans, we've got a massive info drop for Halo: Spartan Assault (iOS). Grab a cookie.

Previously on Halo: Spartan Assault, we learned that Xbox One owners will get the first crack at Spartan Assault when it drops on December 24th. Xbox 360 owners will have to wait until January.

Next, we've got some glorious new concept art and screenshots (from the Xbox One version) for you to enjoy.

Moving right on down the line. You say you want gameplay trailers? Ask and ye shall receive not one, but TWO. The first one features co-op gameplay while the second takes you into the game's campaign.

Much like action movies, this news piece contains a stinger after all of the primary information has been revealed. Monday, December 9th was the 343rd day of 2013, thus making it 343 Day. To commemorate, 343 Industries celebrated with all kinds of Halo 4 coolness, but the coolest (and most relevant for our community) part was the unlocking of the Resistor Tactical Package for free. The Resistor mod (which allows players to retain full mobility when taking fire for a few moments) is now available for all. As you can imagine, this mod can be HIGHLY BENEFICIAL when trying to grind out some of those MP achievements. To equip the Resistor mod, just sign into Halo 4 on Xbox LIVE and it will be a Tactical Package option in your Loadouts.

Halo: Spartan Assault is set for a December 24th release on the Xbox One. It will cost $14.99. HOWEVER, if you purchased (or have purchased) the Windows Phone 8 or Windows 8 version of Spartan Assault before December 15th, you will be able to pick up the console version for only $4.99. As soon as a solid date for the Xbox 360 release is announced, we'll be sure to let you know!
