The successor to the Halo: Spartan Assault will be Halo: Spartan Strike. The names of both the games do show a link between them and the story line is also expected to have it. But interestingly, Halo: Spartan Strike will not be released as the way of its predecessor. According to the reports, the next series will be launched on one platform only. Once you own the game, you can easily use it on any device. The game will be launched on Windows 8, Windows Phone and Steam, which is once again Windows based.
The single platform release has added a complete new dimension to the game itself. It happens in many cases where a person cannot play the game on two devices unless buying the game twice. You will be able to save a location and start off from the same location in a completely other device. The name of the game remains very much same stating the obvious connection between the two versions. It is expected that Halo: Spartan Strike will take off from where its predecessor left.
In addition, the controls are also expected to be very much similar. One joystick will be used to aim and shoot and the other for navigation. It is not that the game will be exactly like the previous one. According to the developers, there are many new additions to the upcoming Halo game. There will be quite a few new weapons on offer which were absent in Halo: Spartan Assault. It will be interesting to see the gamers react to Halo: Spartan Strike and how do they rate it, once it is launched.
The game will require a minimum of 512 MB Ram for Windows phones and is expected to be launched at a price of $5.99. No official date has been announced for the launch of the game, but the day is expected to be very near.
