It's here! The first Halo game to make its way to the hallowed PC platform since Halo 2! Well, to the PCs-running-Windows-8 platform, that is. Halo: Spartan Assault is now available, exclusively to Windows 8 gamers, to purchase via the Windows store. Since Vista exclusivity worked so well with Halo 2, we can only imagine that sales of Windows 8 are now gonna go through the freakin' roof.

Vanguard Games and 343 Industries have announced the July release of Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down shooter which takes place in the always-evolving Halo universe. Although the developer is highlighting the game's functionality on touch-based tablets and phones, it should work on any machine that runs Windows 8, including PCs.
