"Halo: Spartan Assault" is the franchise’s first touch-based game.

“Halo: Spartan Assault” breaks new ground as the first touch-based game in the Halo series.

This installment picks up where “Halo 3” left off and before the events in “Halo 4.” Players engage in a new war with the Covenant and the first 25 missions of the Spartan Ops program. They also get to see the rise of Commander Sarah Palmer. Single-player combatants can go back and forth between Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices using touch and console-like controls as well as keyboard and mouse commands. They can also take on Weekly Challenges or friends, while collecting more than 40 in-game Achievements and Medals.

“Halo: Spartan Assault” arrives in July, and a new Halo for Xbox One will follow in 2014.
