The company made the title available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices worldwide back in July, but there was a catch in the US, where Verizon snagged the initial distribution rights to leave AT&T and T-Mobile customers facing a wait.
The game is a big deal for Microsoft since it is the first time that its renowned Halo franchise has landed on mobile devices. The Redmond-based company and partners like Nokia will hope it provides another factor to persuade consumers to purchase a Windows Phone 8-powered device over the competition.
The game is priced at $6.99 and requires 1GB of RAM for installation. It’s been well received, to date, and includes 25 new missions for Halo enthusiasts to get their teeth into — although the most dedicated fans outside of the US have probably already done so.
