Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced a new Halo game, which apparently is going to be the sequel to Halo: Spartan Assault. So, if you are a fan of the game (and who isn’t, right?), then let’s have a look at some of its features.

Halo: Spartan Strike is an upcoming twin-stick shooter that seems to be the successor to last year’s Halo: Spartan Assault. The new game will be released on December 12 and has its action set during the events of Halo 2. Of course, as expected it will features a good number of improvements over Spartan Assault, and I’m sure you’ll like them all!

The game will be released for a price of $5.99 on Windows 8 desktop and touch and Windows Phone, but also on Steam. Among its features we’ll find achievements, rewards in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 25 weekly challenges, leaderboards and the exclusion of microtransactions; which is said for those who liked the concept.

Microsoft said the game will remain exclusive to Windows 8 and PC, but this could be just for the beginning. Because, really, I don’t see why Microsoft would limit the access to such a great game. And since Nadella took over, we’ve seen that the company looks after its customers from other platforms, so, yeah, I guess at a certain point it will available to other platforms, as well.
