THE BUZZ: It has been confirmed that Halo Waypoint will be available for Windows Phones, iOS and Android this week, allowing players to access their Halo: Reach stats on the move.

It is set to launch December 10, alongside ATLAS, a new app that provides, “near-real-time player data and tactical guidance for your Halo: Reach and Halo: Anniversary Multiplayer gameplay.” Waypoint will be free on all devices however, iOS and Android users will have to shell out $4.99 for the ATLAS app which will be free on Windows Phones. The full ATLAS feature list:

  • Weapon and vehicle spawn locations for Matchmaking and Firefight games.
  • Health pack locations.
  • Near-real-time locations for weapons and vehicles during Custom Multiplayer games.
  • Your location and that of your team members displayed on the map.
  • ‘Follow me’ mode to track your movement.
  • Dynamic player list, including current score for the teams and each player and equipped weapon for you and your teammates.

EGM’s TAKE: The FPS world is constantly evolving and even though it has been promised that the ATLAS app won’t provide an unfair advantage, it’s hard to see how it will not.
