Halo 4 Spartan Ops Episode 2 release date - defend the UNSC Infinity in five new missions

Second Halo 4 co-op campaign chapter to arrive next week

Halo 4 Spartan Ops Episode 2 will launch on Monday, 12th November, Microsoft has announced, adding five new missions and a fresh whack of side-story.

As detailed in the release, "the episode sees a mysterious artifact (recovered from Requiem) take 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." Sounds a bit Flood-esque, doesn't it?

New to Spartan Ops? It's a a downloadable episodic co-op campaign that's totally free. Expect a fresh handful of missions every week for 10 weeks. That'll be 50 in total, then. Read our Halo 4 Spartan Ops Episode 1 review for more.
