Microsoft Announces New Halo Game

Today Microsoft and 343 Studios have announced Halo: Spartan Strike, a top-down shooter set during the events of Halo 2. The game serves as an upgrade of sorts to the studio’s earlier Halo: Spartan Assault and will be playable on most Windows-enabled devices when it is released in December. The game will cost users 5.99 for the entire package, and grant you access to the game on all platforms, including Steam, and also garner a truckload of bonus content, including achievements, unlockables in Halo: Master Chief Collection, weekly challenges, and more. The game will also not feature any sort of microtransactions.


Halo has been a rising tide of sorts as of late, with the Master Chief collection, Halo 5: Guardians multiplayers, and a brand new live action television show all slated to let players experience the Halo universe like never before. It truly is an exciting time to be a fan, if I do say so myself!

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
