If you purchased “Halo: Spartan Assault” for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 before Dec. 15, here’s something that might give you even more holiday cheer: you can get the Xbox One version for just $4.99!

As Xbox Wire reports, “When it released on Windows 8 devices and Windows Phone 8 earlier this year, ‘Halo: Spartan Assault’ was greeted by Halo fans with open arms. The twin stick shooter was lauded by critics and players alike for presenting a game that looked and sounded just as great as the Halo games of old while providing a top-down experience that had never been seen in the series. In fact, the only thing that was missing was the ability to play the game on your console. That all changes on Dec. 24 when a new and improved ‘Halo: Spartan Assault’ comes to Xbox One via a digital download priced at $14.99. Not only will the game look gorgeous on the Xbox One thanks to its native 1080p resolution and smooth 60 fps frame rate, it will also feature a brand-new cooperative mode, new weapons, and the inclusion of the ‘Operation Hydra’ add-on.”

Fans who bought the game for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 devices before Dec. 15 and used a valid Xbox profile can buy the Xbox One version of the game (using the same Xbox profile) at the discounted price of $4.99. 

More than 30 missions await you in this game, plus an all-new multi-player “cooperative” mode.

Check out Xbox Wire to find out more about the discount and availability, and read a Q&A with Executive Producer Dan Ayoub from 343 Industries.
