Halo 4 video: Spartan Ops set six months after campaign

Wednesday, 4th July 2012 09:00 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Halo 4′s Spartan Ops will take place six months after the game’s main campaign, 343 Industries tells VG247, in an interview that further details Master Chief’s newest enemy: the Prometheans.

Halo 4′s Spartan Ops DLC effort was been further detailed in a VG247 interview with 343′s David Berger and Kevin Franklin in LA last month, including confirmation of timeline and links to the campaign.

“With [Spartan Ops] being such a story-driven mode, it’s something we really wanted to be able to really push the fiction forward with after the launch of the game,” said Berger.

“It takes place about six months after the events of the campaign, but as you’ve seen in the cut-scene [shown at the Microsoft E3 press conference - Ed] the Infinity features in also the campaign. So we have some ties in the story between the two.”

The heavy stream of Spartan Ops updates will come at no extra cost to the user.

“In Spartan Ops you’re getting five missions per week, with a CG cut-scene, for free,” said Franklin.

Berger added: “With months of content of that style so that we can really push the story and fiction forward after launch. And that’s all part of the game.”

It was confirmed last week that Halo 4′s first Spartan Ops season would be included in the cost of the game.

Halo 4 releases on November 6.

    It’s going to be pretty hard to not buy this. Mental value.

    Playing Halo 4 is like playing THE NEXT BIG Halo game. It feels like a vast improvement. Best way of describing it is like a ‘jump up’ to another engine/generation.

    Genuinely shocked as I went into playing it with the thoughts of ‘just another Halo game’. I was wrong, so wrong.

    These Spartan Ops missions, are they MP only, or varied with SP? Will you still get them if your only a silver member?
