Halo: Spartan Ops will be available in July for all Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices. While promoted as a game "designed" around touch, the PC version will run on any Windows 8 system, even without a touchscreen. At launch, keyboard & mouse controls will be supported, and a title update will later introduce controller support.

Also, although the game is launching simultaneously on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, Microsoft does not plan on offering any "cross buy" functionality. Instead, both versions will be sold separately and will cost $6.99.

Here it is!

Isn't this EXACTLY what you guys wanted? yessir.gif

So, it's like that Alien Swarm game then? Meh, not interested. Guess those with a Win phone would get it tho.

I bet if you give it a good 2 weeks to a month, someone will come out with a patch that will allow you to play this on Windows 7. Sure it's not smart of them to make it only for Windows 8, but what can you do. If the game play looks nifty enough I may pick this up. Otherwise it'll just be lost in the dust bowl they have created. Would've been better if it was more or less like an FPS as opposed to a moba.

For those thinking that it is only for mobile devices, you really need to go back and read closely. Besides, you can get a Windows 8 upgrade for $50.00 and it may not be needed but I enjoy how quickly it performs and how sleek it looks. Just takes some getting used to.

At first I thought the screenshots looked like an RTS like Starcraft then I watched the video and immediately thought Alien Swarm as well. Wasn't a bad game but only entertaining for so long, even with friends, and this doesn't look like it's going to be anything amazing.
