• Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Well ever since we got that sand filled teaser at E3 last year, we knew it was only a matter of time until a new Halo landed on Xbox One. 13 years since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved, next fall will see the launch of Halo 5: Guardians. 343 Industries says that the game will use a brand new engine and will incorporate the lessons they learned from Halo 4, which we referred to as the most accomplished game in the series in our review two years ago. As they did with Halo 4, we hope 343 are taking advantage of the rich mythology of the Halo universe for the Xbox One. We’ll have more information on Halo 5: Guardians as it develops and you can read the full statement from 343 Industries after the jump.

    343 Brings Halo to Windows 8 with Halo: Spartan Assault

    Halo is coming to Windows 8 tablets and PCs, along with Windows Phone 8 smartphones this July in the form of Halo: Spartan Assault (don’t worry, Surface owners; the new game will run on Windows RT as well). Taking the form of a top-down, twin stick shooter, Halo: Spartan Assault will be Halo’s first foray into the tablet and smartphone arena. Players take the role of Commander Sarah Palmer (the Squad commander from Halo 4’s excellent Spartan Ops) in her major mission as an elite Spartan-IV soldier. All the favourite weapons from the franchise return, as does the ability to command vehicles to aid in the fight against the Covenant. Also, if you’re not a fan of touch controls, the PC version of the game will be controllable with a mouse and keyboard. You can see the game in action in the announcement trailer above.

    PSA: Halo 4’s Spartan Ops is Back

    Yes that’s right. The absolute best thing about Halo 4, Spartan Ops, is back. The back half of season 1 started on Monday and already it’s barreling towards an awesome climax. If you read my review of 2012, you’ll know that Spartan Ops is the reason Halo 4 made it on my “games of the year” list.
