Halo 4 Spartan Ops Walkthrough

The second Halo 4 disc is focused on Multiplayer and Spartan Ops. Typically Disc 2 is installed on the harddrive so that you never have to switch discs.

Spartan Ops story: The designation “Spartan Ops” has been given to any and all on-record missions conducted by Spartans of the UNSC Infinity. For longtime Halo fans, however, Spartan Ops represents a watershed moment of immersive, story-driven cooperative gameplay delivered in addictive, bite-sized episodic pieces. Spartan Ops episodes run the course of a season, providing epic gameplay experiences driven by the powerful stories of the Spartans aboard Infinity, as they encounter the hostile alien world of Requiem.

Spartan Ops description: Extend your campaign experience in a massive-scale adventure that builds upon the “Halo 4” Campaign. Receive a weekly series of cinematic episodes on Xbox LIVE followed by new game play missions, played solo or cooperatively with up to three friends – effectively delivering two campaign experiences in one game! Online multiplayer and Spartan Ops missions require Xbox LIVE Gold membership (sold separately) and a minimum of 8GB of free space on your Xbox 360 harddrive or USB stick.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the free Halo 4 Spartan Ops DLC and how long is it?

Spartan Ops Season 1 includes 10 Episodes with a total of 50 Missions. Included for free with Halo 4 as long as you have an Xbox Live Gold membership. 8GB of hard drive space required. The 10 Episodes are released with missions & cinematics over 10 weeks time. It can be played Solo or in Co-Op via 2-player split-screen & 4-player online. It’s meant to replace the Firefight mode from Halo 3: ODST & Halo: Reach.

Altogether the Spartan Ops DLC will be as long as the Halo 3: ODST campaign, says Frank ‘O Connor.

I was thinking about starting Spartan Ops with my friend before starting the campaign. Will the first episode spoil the campaign? Major spoilers? Mild spoilers?

Developer 343 Industries answered: “There are a couple of big ideas that are obvious, and don’t read any further if you don’t want those spoiled, such as the fact that a couple of characters and ships have “made it” but beyond that it won’t necessarily spoil or ruin the campaign. However we still advise people to play them in the correct chronological order.”

Will Spartan Ops have consecutive seasons, and when can we expect their release?

Developer 343 Industries answered: “Spartan Ops is being treated just like any other “TV show” and we’ll wait and see how it’s received and digested before moving forward. We have some very cool story ideas and some ways to continue the arc of the Spartan Ops series, but it’s a pretty grand experiment and we will apply our learnings from that experience in appropriate ways.”
