The lights are on
Halo 4's episodic Spartan Ops mode will see players getting 5 new missions every week for 10 weeks. The details reportedly come from Microsoft ExpertZone, a portal only accessible by retail employees.
Additionally, the game's multiplayer features 10 maps with more coming as future download content. There's also going to be 10 new weapons and 2 new vehicles. One other detail mentioned is that Master Chief will have a true "nemesis" for the first time in the series.

Oh man, I couldn't get ANY MORE EXCITED for this!
Omg so awesome. 4 months to go. Should clean out my friends list and add some for halo 4.
Can't wait! One of many midnight releases this fall.
I'm excited for Halo 4, but I still have too many questions about Spartan Ops to fully get behind it. 50 missions spread over 10 weeks sounds great, but does each mission have a brand new objective? Or is it like Mass Effect 3's multiplayer in which it's the same mission (survival) with different variables (location, enemy, mini-objectives)? Will we be able to replay missions once their downloaded? Can we play them offline or solo? If they think these missions are like getting a whole second campaign, then how much will the next 'season' of content cost?
I'm not griping at all, I just don't know what to think yet. I loved Firefight mode to death, and was a bit down to hear it wouldn't be in this game. However, I'm eager to see what 343 does with this new mode they've introduced.
The more I hear about this game the more excited I get. Spartan Ops looks really interesting and the multiplayer unlocks has me really excited.
