Spartan Ops is the newest gameplay mode in the Halo franchise for Xbox 360. Taking place six months after the events of Halo 4, the plot will revolve around the Infinity, those on board, and the Spartan 4 super soldiers. The first season has been confirmed and will come with the purchase of Halo 4, and upcoming seasons are planned, but hinge on the success of the first. It has been described by Frank O’Connor, Franchise Development Director for the Halo Franchise at 343 Industries, as “a TV show you play”. One Chapter will be released each week, containing one CG cut scene and five playable episodes (or missions). Season one is 10 weeks in length, and the total playing time is longer than some games in the Halo franchise.
“Spartan Ops, at the very highest level, the ten thousand foot level, it’s a TV show you play.”
At Auspicious Eagle you’ll find reviews and recaps of each Spartan Ops Chapter. I’ll post gameplay clips of each episode, and I hope to provide some guides on completeing them each on solo legendary, though that is still up in the air. We’ll see how much I die.
You’ll also find any news on upcoming episodes or seasons, other clips that I find interesting, screenshots, theories, the list goes on. If it has to do with Spartan Ops, I want to have it here.
Finally, since there will be times when there are no new Chapters, you’ll find other random stuff that has to do with Halo.
