Notably, for the longest time, as we showered Spartan Ops with praise as this incredible package of free downloadable content that will hit your Xbox 360 every week for ten weeks and come with a CG-short feature that you watch and five missions that you play –based on and inspired by that week’s short feature–, in the back of my mind I always thought there was going to be some kind of trapdoor to the whole thing.
Like the playable missions are going to be super short, or somehow truncated or have limited access to weapons or vehicles or something like that. While after running through two and half mission of an early Spartan Ops package, I’m thrilled to report that this thing is the real deal.
That half mission came about because, in a recent playthrough of the entire Halo 4 experience, we accidentally loaded up a third Spartan Ops mission that wasn’t supposed to be shown.
If 343 Industries, as Microsoft’s new stewards of all things Halo, was playing us the whole time then I’ve been happily suckered. > watch more Halo 4 game
