Halo 4's Spartan Ops: Episode Two available next Monday

The next free episode of Spartan Ops, the co-op campaign which takes place after Master Chief's accomplishments in Halo 4, will be available next Monday, November 12, at 3AM Pacific. The first episode is accessible now in the game's multiplayer section.

Microsoft tells us it's sticking to the plan of launching the ten announced Spartan Ops episodes weekly, but stopped short of saying that it'll always be Monday at the same time as episode two.

There is some serious CGI-candy to be found in Spartan Ops if you haven't checked it out yet.

A first for the "Halo" franchise, Spartan Ops is a story-driven, episodic co-op adventure that blends immersive storytelling, high-quality cinematics and action-packed gameplay to deliver an unprecedented serialized experience.

Through a weekly series of cinematic episodes, Spartan Ops tells the continuing story of the UNSC Infinity, following the events of "Halo 4." These episodes center on the UNSC Infinity leaders and crew as well as a new team of Spartans - Fireteam Majestic – as they explore the corners of Requiem in objective-based missions and help uncover the secrets of the mysterious Forerunner world. A massive adventure that builds off the "Halo 4" story, access to Spartan Ops is included with "Halo 4" at no additional charge - effectively delivering two campaign experiences in one game. 1
