Can’t get enough of Halo: Spartan Assault? Well, suit back up, Spartans, because the fight against the Covenant is far from over.

Operation Hydra, a free game update with five new missions to battle through (check out the screenshots below for a taste), just started making the rounds. Don’t own Spartan Assault yet? All the more reason to buy the newly updated Windows Phone 8 game now. Version 1.1 includes the 25 original missions plus the five new ones.

And there’s more good news: The update also adds support for phones with 512MB RAM, making the game available to even more Windows Phone models.

Fans already know this top-down shooter is the first mobile Halo in the franchise’s 12-year history. Set in the years between Halo 3 and Halo 4, the game offers new insights into the first missions of the Spartan Ops program, the history of the Human-Covenant wars, and the rise of Commander Sarah Palmer.

In the new five-mission Operation Hydra expansion update, you intercept a haunting alien signal after the destruction of planet Draetheus V. Following the signal to the core of the planet’s moon, you discover its terrifying source—and a surprising new mystery to unravel.

  • YES!!! I went out and purchased the Nokia Lumia 521 before I realised that it wasn't supported for the game, so I was stuck and waiting to go out and pick-up a Surface (which I am doing anyways) as I'm running Vista 64 desktop and Vista 32 laptop and figured the Windows 8 jump would be best on a tablet as I wait for the Xbox One release and...wait for it....wait for it...the release of Microsofts HomeOS.  There..I said it.  Now I can have Halo EVERYWHERE...Muahahahahahahaaaaaaaaa...

    Great graphics. Hopefully windows phone gets more games and apps. When will Nokia be arriving at Sprint? Please make it happen.

  • On Windows Phone you keep all saves. Careful you lose all progress on Windows 8. There is 360 controller support (enabled through Settings).

    Does this update finally add Controller support? or your continuing to ignore Windows Desktop gamers?

    At the very least you could add support for the XBOX 360 controller.

  • love it

    thanks Microsoft :)
