Details on Episodes 6-10 of "Halo 4 Spartan Ops" were revealed Friday as several sites had the opportunity to do hands on previews with the Xbox 360 game. One detail we didn't see came to us in the form of a press release hinting at a setting change for the episodic series.
Players have been restricted to the Requiem sandbox in the first five episodes of "Spartan Ops" with many levels from the single-player and multiplayer portions reused twice or more. 343 Industries promises more maps with more mission and gameplay variety for the final five episodes and that apparently includes trips off the Forerunner Shield World judging by the press release excerpt below.
"Reenlist with Fireteam Crimson as they search for Spartan Thorne on planet Requiem and come face-to-face with the threat of Jul ‘Mdama and his cult of Covenant separatists. The intensity of Season One builds to its thrilling conclusion in Episodes 6-10 as the battle moves beyond Requiem to a wide variety of locations featuring epic vehicular combat and on-foot encounters with Prometheans and Covenant forces."
343 Industries reportedly has more resources available to dedicate to "Spartan Ops" now so it should be interesting to see how the final episodes will shape up. Fans won't have long to wait as Episode 6 releases the morning of Monday, Jan. 21.
