Halo is definitely one of Microsoft’s crown jewels, and one of the biggest differentiators in its Xbox platform. The launch of Halo: Spartan Assault on Windows Phone, Windows 8.1 and Steam made a lot of sense two years ago, as these were all platforms where Microsoft wanted to use the Halo brand to extend mindshare. Today we finally get a sequel for the game, but this time Microsoft wants to expand further.

Halo: Spartan Strike finally goes live today after it was announced back in October 2014, and those of you lucky enough to carry a Windows 8.1 computer, Windows Phone, Steam account or even an iOS device can enjoy the fun. Yes, we didn’t get that wrong, we did say iOS. As a matter of fact, it launched on iOS a few hours before it reached Microsoft’s own products, and as much as this might seem odd, we do know that Redmond wants to expand its reach as far as possible.

The game will cost you $5.99 on its own, or you can also pay $9.99 to get Spartan Strike and Spartan Assault in a bundle. We haven’t had a chance to test it yet and give you a verdict as a worthy sequel or not, but we’re sure you’ll do a far better job than we will at that. Make sure you share your experiences in the comments down bellow.
