We’ve still got a few months left to wait before Halo 5: Guardians hits the Xbox One this fall, but in the meantime, 343 Industries has teamed up with Vanguard Games to bring a new top-down shooter to PC, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone. Halo: Spartan Strike is the sequel to Spartan Assault (the first mobile entry in the Halo series), and it’s out right now.

Halo: Spartan Strike will take place on New Mombasa during the Halo 2 timeline, telling the story of a Spartan supersoldier who is tasked with completing 30 missions while leading fellow UNSC troops through the jungle.

Players on Windows 8 devices will be able to compete with their friends in weekly challenges and try to claim the top spot on the leaderboard. There will also be achievements which will award Xbox One owners with an exclusive emblem, nameplate and avatar in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Spartan Strike is available now for $5.99, but gamers can also pick up the Spartan Bundle for $9.99, which includes the original Spartan Assault and its sequel.
