For years, players have been familiarized with the famous critically acclaimed Halo franchise through their  Xbox consoles. Now the saga is expanding to mobility with Spartan Assault for Windows 8 devices. GamerFitNation’s Antwand ‘Blackbible’ Pearman had a chance  to chat with Kevin Grace, franchise manager for Halo‘s new game, Spartan Assault, an upcoming over head combat touch-screen game. As experienced on the PC previously,  players are now able to take on the Covenant on the go. Kevin shares with GF that even though this entry into the Halo franchise looks similar to the down view in Halo Wars, Spartan Assault  will be the first Halo title to reach mobile devices. In this drop down view arcade style shooter, players can combat through 25 action-packed missions against the Covenant, learn the origin of the Spartan Ops program, and also a familiar Halo 4 Spartan’s backstory, Sarah Palmer. The story set for Spartan Assault takes place before the events of Halo 4‘s story.

Kevin states, “It’s a brand new look on Halo, but it’s still got all the familiar things if you’ve played Halo for a while. All the weapons, the Covenant, the skulls, and the armor abilities—all those things that make Halo ‘Halo’ are there, but just a way you never seen it before.” Kevin also shares that 343 industries is dedicated to Halo‘s fanbase and want to stay true to the universe of the franchise to connect old and new. Which is always a plus when new developers that are introduced to take on a huge title and does stray away from its core from a previous developer.
