Easily one of the biggest announcements from Microsoft on Tuesday, focused around the announcement of the upcoming game “Halo: Spartan Assault”. The huge announcements as noticed on the Xbox Wire stated that the game will arrive in December and is sure to be a huge hit.
The exclusive title from Microsoft in conjunction with 343 Industries and Vanguard Games, is one of the biggest titles for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. This game is just in time for the holiday season, and should give Microsoft huge sales in the upcoming holiday season.
Halo: Spartan Assault
This game is built to pit gamers in a galactic-scale war against a long time nemesis known as “The Flood”. Gamers will be able to take advantage of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One’s multiplayer modes to watch each other’s backs and launch into the Co-op multiplayer mode very easily on each console unit. The number of missions are endless with the number of weapons available as well..
Microsoft and Xbox made sure that there are over 30 missions available and that the single player campaign on this game is also meant to stimulate and excite users. The Operation Hydra expansion helped give the single player campaign players new ways to play, and now is the highlight of the new game.
Why This Matters For Microsoft
This game is huge for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One for the holiday season. The Halo brand is exclusive to the Xbox and Microsoft can ring up huge revenues from the launch of this game around the holiday season. It will show off the highlights of the multiplayer mode that the Xbox One gives gamers and will keep the Xbox Live servers very busy in December.
The game also pits itself against the Playstation 4 this holiday season. The two big console makers will be battling each other for the holiday shoppers, and by giving gamers a new Halo game in December, Microsoft is ensuring that gamers will line up in the Xbox One line verus the Playstation 4 lines at the holiday shops.
I love Halo and have since the beginning of the Xbox consoles. This new game is perfect for the Xbox One, and gives gamers a holiday treat for the holiday season from Microsoft.
