Halo: Spartan Assault ending Verizon exclusivity


It’s been just about a month since Microsoft released Halo: Spartan Assault as a Windows Phone exclusive. Though we’d seen companion Halo apps from the platform before, getting a full-fledged title of its own like this could stand to do a lot for the reputation of gaming on WP8. Problem was, Verizon had worked a deal where only its users would get access to the title for the first 30 days following launch. With H:SA debuting the evening of July 18, today marks day 30, which means that the rest of you Windows Phone gamers should soon be having your own shot.

So far, we haven’t heard any confirmations of successful installations from non-Verizon users, so Microsoft might be playing around with the math a little, counting from July 19 or somesuch. Even then, consider this your notice to check the Windows Phone Store tomorrow morning for your chance to snag H:SA.

Halo: Spartan Assault is still priced right around $7, just like it was when it launched. Check out our own hands-on experience with the game to see if it might be right for you.
