Episode Two: Artifact Coming Today to Halo 4: Spartan Ops
Halo 4‘s Spartan Ops mode is a great way to get away from the frenetic extreme competition in War Games, offering an original and enjoyable co-operative mode where gamers take on Prometheans and Covies in missions with various objectives. The gametype is more of a mini-game, as the levels themselves aren’t too long, but do provide high-quality action that Halo Reach‘s Firefight mode offered.
Episode 1: Departure features five chapters, each with their own distinct maps, objectives, enemies, and weapons, providing a distinct experience for each level.
“This week on Halo 4: Spartan Ops — The mysterious artifact recovered from Requiem takes control of vital systems on board the UNSC Infinity, forcing the Spartans of Crimson and Majestic back down to the planet to look for a way to free the ship. Commander Lasky and the UNSC need you, Spartan…get back in the game!” —Official YouTube description
Episode 2: Artifact continues the story arc and investigates the strange mysterious artifact found in Episode 1’s Core mission, building off of the events introduced in Departure. Also included is a brand new array of weekly challenges for Spartan Ops, giving a helpful boost to XP for gamers who are veterans to the gametype.
Episode Two: Artifact is coming later today on Monday, Nov. 12, 2012 and is available for free on Xbox LIVE. For more information on Spartan Ops and Halo 4 please visit Halo Waypoint’s official website.
