Halo: Spartan Assault available for download this evening


Since we first heard about Halo: Spartan Assault for Windows Phone 8, we’ve been optimistic that an exclusive title from a high-profile series like this could be a much-needed boon to Windows Phone gaming. A little earlier this month some of the app’s launch plans started coming together, and yesterday we were able to give you a hands-on demo. We’ve known to expect the app sometime this month, yesterday afternoon news leaked out that the app would arrive sometime today… so where is it? Nokia just posted the above teaser to its Facebook page, along with the note that Spartan Assault would be available for download beginning at 7PM EDT.

We previously heard that Verizon would get an exclusive on the app at launch, a period that has since been revealed to last for 30 days. That’s going to mean that many of you will end up waiting, but if you are a Windows Phone user on Verizon, you’ll be able to snag the game for $7 in just a matter of minutes.

Now we just have to sit back and wait to see if this Halo title really manages to capture the attention of gamers, or if it will fail to deliver the same spark (343 Guilty? *groan*) as console Halo releases.
