Available only for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, “Halo: Spartan Assault” is a new top-down action shooter that brings a “Halo” video game to touch-based devices for the first time in franchise history. Developed by 343 Industries in conjunction with Vanguard Games, “Halo: Spartan Assault” provides an accessible, pick-up-and-play experience for fans and newcomers alike.

However, a report on Polygon says that Halo: Spartan Assault will be exclusive to the Verizon Wireless service in the US until August 16th. 1GB of RAM is necessary to run the game on Windows Phone 8, while another version is due to release later this year that will support 512MB Windows Phone 8 devices.

Halo Spartan Assault features:

  • New and immersive storyline. An original story set between the events of “Halo 3” and “Halo 4,” experience a new war with the Covenant, the first missions of the Spartan Ops program and the rise of Commander Sarah Palmer, all with best-in-class graphics and audio
  • Built for simplicity. A unique fusion of touch and console-like controls for easy pick-up-and-play gaming, with the added flexibility of keyboard and mouse controls on Windows 8 PCs and tablets
  • Integration with “Halo 4.” Earn experience points (XP), all-new Achievements, and unlock emblems for your “Halo 4” Spartan career, with additional integration features available after launch
  • Nonstop competitive fun. Compete against friends in Leaderboards or hone your skills against an onslaught of Weekly Challenges while collecting more than 40 in-game Achievements and Medals
  • In-app purchases. Grind to earn upgrades or speed up your training by purchasing credits for boosts, unique weapons or armor abilities
  • Only on Windows. Available only on Windows 8 PCs and tablets and Windows Phone 8 devices.

I’ll keep updating as the news rolls out.

Champions Bundle, Armor Mods, Legendary Slayer! The Halo Bulletin: 7.10.13

Lots of details in this weeks Halo Bulletin. Too much to cover from RTX, Halo 4 Global Championship, Halo 4 Champions Bundle, new Halo 4 Armor Mods, and Halo4 Legendary Slayer Playlist along with a matchmaking update for the Global Championship.

Here are the highlights. Click here to read all of it!

The Champions Bundle

The Champions Bundle contains three DLC packs, as well as bonus content, including:

  • Bullseye Pack (Includes Ricochet, a new game type)
    • New Map – Vertigo:

Vertigo is an asymmetrical map that provides a wide variety of indoor and outdoor combat. The map lends itself best to Slayer and Extraction game types and is best played with anywhere from 8 to 10 players. Vertigo also touts the return of a dynamic, interactive element in a Halo multiplayer map: Each base has a trigger point that depletes the shields of all players in range when shot. The map also contains a series of caves on each side as well as three levels of verticality, providing players with several different routes for attacking each base.

    • Pitfall – Halo 3 The Pit Remake
  • Steel Skin Pack
    • Gold steam-punk like weapon skin for loadout weapons
  • Infinity Armor Pack
    • MARK V Armor, ODST Armor, and forerunner Prefect Armor
  • Bonus content, including new stances, armor and weapon skins, and a new armor mod
    • 5 new weapon skins
    • 8 new stances for your Player Card
    • Five new armor skins: Tracer, Column, Python, Bayonet, and Solid
    • Resistor Tactical Package:

      The Champions Bundle will include a sneak peek to the Resistor armor mod, which allows players to retain full mobility despite taking fire for a few moments. The armor mod will eventually be made available to all players in Halo 4 Matchmaking free of charge.

Halo 4 Armor Mod Update

In addition to the Halo 4 Champions Bundle bonus content, we’ll be releasing two additional armor mods free of charge for the community to enjoy. We’re currently planning on releasing these one day before the Champions Bundle releases on August 20, and you’ll immediately be able to incorporate these new mods into your loadout and experiment with them.

• Survivor ejects you out of a vehicle if it’s about to explode.
• Recharge decreases the time it takes for your shields to recharge.

Legendary Slayer

At PAX East, we announced that we were working on a new playlist named Legendary Slayer. After much iteration, discussion and playtesting, we’re excited to announce that it is (almost!) here and (almost!) ready for your enjoyment. Legendary Slayer is a variant that focuses on basic gameplay with only one loadout, on-map weapons and motion tracker enabled. Here are the key settings:

  • 4 vs. 4 Slayer
  • Default starting weapon (Assault Rifle)
  • No Armor Abilities
  • Motion Tracker enabled
  • All weapons and grenades located on map (no initial, random or personal ordnance)

The singular loadout is:

  • Starting weapon: Assault Rifle
  • Secondary weapon: None
  • Armor Ability: None
  • Grenades: Frag x2
  • Support upgrade: Explosives
  • Tactical package: Resupply

We’re excited to deliver a brand-new experience to Halo 4 Matchmaking that will focus on even starting weapons and map control, with players fighting to gain control of all rifles, power weapons and each map’s power positions. The Legendary Slayer playlist launches Monday, July 15, on the following maps, which have been custom-created specifically for this playlist:

  • Haven
  • Solace
  • Adrift
  • Abandon
  • Landfall
  • Monolith
  • Skyline
  • Shutout

Building the Destiny E3 Reveal – Bungie Commentary

A trio of Bungie artists sits down to deliver running commentary about Destiny’s E3 Gameplay reveal.

Your Fireteam for this mission will be three of the artists who led the charge to build that brave new world. Experience the adventure that unfolded at E3 through their eyes, and get to know some of the people who are making this game.

They are:
Ryan Ellis, Technical Art Director
Marke Pedersen, Environment Art Lead
Michael Zak, Senior Art Lead

At E3, they were members of our away team. Had you scored a seat as a member of our audience, you would have seen them showing off their work (and the work of their fearless peers) to the world. Now, they’re dishing out commentary on those first steps taken by Guardians into the world they helped to create.

This map needs no introduction. It’s a remake of the classic Halo 3 map “The Pit” with some minor changes. Such as a bigger-wider overshield tunnel with a gravity lift to the sword room, and a drop down hatch in the sword room. There will be a vanilla version for multiplayer matches though.
