“Halo: Spartan Strike” – an all-new Halo top-down shooter – is headed to Windows 8 devices and to Steam on Dec. 12 as a digital download for $5.99.
The game, set during the events of “Halo 2,” shares a new chapter in the Halo universe. You play as a Spartan in a real-world, classified ONI simulation that starts on New Mombasa in 2552, and will take you through jungles, cities and more, according to Xbox Wire. You’ll be using your Spartan skills, an all-new arsenal of weapons, abilities and vehicles as you lead UNSC troops through 30 challenging missions to prevent Earth from being overtaken by hordes of Covenant and Promethean enemies.
