Halo 4 launched worldwide in November 2012, quickly becoming the fastest-selling Halo title ever released on the Xbox 360, and the action will continue in 2013 with brand new content. Today Microsoft and 343 Industries announced the return of Spartan Ops: Season One, which includes five weeks of brand-new content – from Jan. 21 through Feb. 24 – returning players to the episodic adventure that tells the continuing story of the UNSC Infinity.
Re-enlist with Fireteam Crimson as they search for Spartan Thorne on planet Requiem and come face-to-face with the threat of Jul ‘Mdama and his cult of Covenant separatists. The intensity of Season One builds to its thrilling conclusion in Episodes 6-10 as the battle moves beyond Requiem to a wide variety of locations featuring epic vehicular combat and on-foot encounters with Prometheans and Covenant forces.
Each week in Halo 4 you can experience a new high-quality cinematic episode, and fight alongside friends in five action-packed playable chapters through Feb. 24. Continuing the story following the events of Halo 4, access to Spartan Ops is included with Halo 4 at no additional charge — effectively delivering two campaign experiences in one game.
The first half of Spartan Ops: Season One (Episodes 1-5) is available for play at any time in Halo 4 for those beginning their Spartan careers. Get introduced to Captain Lasky, Commander Palmer and Fireteam Majestic as they continue to explore the mysterious of the Forerunner planet of Requiem.
