Halo 4's Spartan Ops season is set to kick off once again for the New Year from today, with episodes 6-10 coming over the next five weeks.

There'll be a brand new Spartan Ops episode each week from today until February 24th, telling the continuing story of the UNSC Infinity. You'll be able to re-enlist with Fireteam Crimson on a search for Spartan Thorne somewhere on the Forerunner planet Requiem, while coming face-to-face with the threat of Jul ‘Mdama and his cult of Covenant separatists.

Episodes 6-10 of Spartan Ops will mark the conclusion of the first season of the separate co-op campaign, with multiplayer set to receive the Forge Test, Grifball and Team Doubles playlists, as well as the Majestic Map Pack very soon. You can check out 343's tentative Halo 4 content schedule here.

Episode 6 of Spartan Ops with five new missions is available today, Check out the trailer and screens below. There's nine screenshots in the gallery.

Didn't notice my list updating to reflect anything Grave.

Gonna fire up Halo shortly and jump in, hopefully there's less recycling of the same areas with slightly different missions.

From what I can gather there are actually new maps this time rather than recycled, which didnt bother me anyway as I found it fun murdering on Valhalla or any other place we've seen before.
Should be good :)

I saw this on the add-on market place, think I'll wait until I've played something else to clear the space before I carry on, I still need to finish episode 5 anyway, but free dlc is always welcome ^-^ to those complaining, stuff it up you're pie hole, it's free, story driven, enjoyable, and what moron expected every mission to be different? Do they have any idea the amount of work it'd take to do that sort of thing?
Honestly my favourite part of Spartan ops has been the Valhalla missions. Something I'd aways wanted to do, fight bots on maps like that, if only we could customise it, turn it to endless, and many others things... next gen, maybe... maybe...

I really wish SPOPS could be played offline, or at least accessible to those with silver accounts too.

No new achievements, then me no play. Ops is just too tedious to play otherwise.

@ 6

If they did that then they won't be making enough money off ya.

Wait, you have to download it!? I was led to belive that the entire Season 1 was on the war games disc. So now I have to waste the whole day downloading 2 GBs? Well, atleast it's free...

Honestly, what part of Spartan Ops is enjoyable? I found Firefight to be the better of the two since Firefight is customizable, has MUCH more maps than Spartan Ops has shown, and a risk in dying. Even the Valhalla missions were a bit tedious (excluding the Mantis one), its usually just "Go here, kill this wave of enemies" or "Defend this area until the Pelican arrives". If Season 2 shows some variety, then I'll be impressed, but so far, I am not.

They need to fix the playlists, it's killing me. No Doubles? Should've been there from the start, as well as the handful of fan-favorites that they've either removed or outright neglected. New maps are welcome. Hopefully we get some smaller ones, as this game is severely lacking in that department.

Loving the story and CG cutscenes for Spartan Ops, looking forward to seeing what happens in the rest of Season 1, should be big enough to make people want to actually buy Season 2.

I really like the communuty on this website.

Map packs and addons are more expensive these days. Complaints everywhere.
Developer releases free content. Complaints everywhere.
No gamerscore attached to an update or DLC? THIS IS THE WORK OF THE DEVIL.

@21: Just because it's free doesn't mean it's quality. At least DLCs and Expansion Packs have value. Some people may enjoy Season 2 of Spartan Ops but if they actually decided to put a price on it and the quality of it increased significantly, then I would opt to buy it.

It's like the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut. It may have been free, but was it worthwhile? Not really. But there are those who were thankful for the update, but would've rather seen more, even if they put a price on it.

Free WTF this is complete and utter B.S. I want to spend $$$$. I started a petition to charge at least 80 MS points for patches. No game should have free anything and at least 1 unattainable achievement. Link for petition below

What #10 said.

Not even free DLC can reinvigorate my desire to play this game.

I'm sorry, but previous Halo titles had me hooked for months. Halo 4 has had my attention for barely a few weeks and now I do not wish to put the disk in, unless for achievements.

As #10 said, Firefight was 10x the mode that Spartan Ops is! The campaign is only 'good' and not excellent as with previous Halo's. I hope 343 pull their finger out for the next one. BRING BACK FIREFIGHT.

Maybe everyone should try the second half of season one before bashing it? If you spent two minutes researching, you'd find out that 343i has made DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENTS on the Spartan Ops chapters. Don't believe me? There are reviews all over the internet praising 343i and the new episode.

From what I've read, there are all brand new maps (open sandbox type), mid mission cutscenes, and the missions actually feel like a campaign. I don't know about all of you, but I'm excited to try it and give Spartan Ops another chance.

Easily the best episode so far with 5 unique maps not in the other 5 episodes. Well worth the play even withot achievements.

I don't get why people say Firefight was better than Spartan Ops. Atleast Spartan Ops adds to the overall story of the games, whereas firefight was just a less fun version of Horde from Gears. Cant wait to see what they do with the rest of season one and really hope they do another season or two.

@32 Exactly. Firefight rehashes wave after wave of the same enemies on multiplayer maps. Spartan Ops is just a quicker paced more story-oriented version of it. I don't understand why people complain about the exclusion of firefight from halo 4 unless its playing offline/custom game types... which I'm sure it isn't.

Finished the new chapters today and I'm very impressed. New locations, better presentation and some epic scraps. AND IT COST NOTHING
