Part two in the Halo 4 episodic content is out now and is available to everyone with an Xbox Live Gold account. If you’ve played the first five levels of Spartan Ops either by yourself or co-opped it up with a friend, then be sure that this second episode is for you.
The episode comes replete with five brand new levels for your Spartan Ops campaign as well as a second cinematic trailer adding to the already established story.
Set six months after the events of the main campaign in Halo 4, the Spartan Ops episodes fill in gaps in the story and help to bridge the gap between Halo 4 and Halo 5.
You can download episode 2 now in-game, as has been confirmed by Major Nelson from 343 Studios via Twitter.
Halo 4 Spartan Ops Ep 2 (Artifact) is out: From the Halo 4 main menu: Infinity>Spartan Ops>Play Chapters>Episode 2 for 5 new missions”
This episode is just the second step on what is supposedly a ten-week schedule of episodic content. All content should feature five new levels as well as advancing the plot further.
