Spartan Assault HaloHalo: Spartan Assault has been released on the Xbox Games Store a day earlier than previously expected.

It was originally slated for release on 24th December for the Xbox One, having previously been available on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices since July, but the early release was spotted by NeoGAF

Spartan Assault is developed by 343 Industries and Vanguard Games. Spartan Assault is a top-down third person shooter set in-between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4, where the UNSC and the Covenant have signed a ceasefire.

The single player campaign sees you play as either Edward Davis or Sarah Palmer, human soldiers stationed on the planet Draetheus V when it comes under attack from Covenant forces.

It features 30 missions to play through as well as a co-op survival game mode which sees you and your friends take on waves of Flood.

The game costs $14.99/£11.99 on Xbox One, however if you had already purchased the game on a mobile device before the 15th December, you are eligible to get the game on Xbox One for only $4.99, according to the Windows Blog.

It is also scheduled for a release on the Xbox 360 next month, where the $4.99 offer will still be in effect for those who purchase it on both phone and console. It will not, however, feature cross platform multiplayer between Microsoft’s two home consoles.
