Plus Team Doubles playlist

Halo 4 is adding episode 8 of its co-op Spartan Ops on Monday February 4, along with two specialisations, Rogue and Tracker, and the new Team Doubles playlist. Here's the cinematic trailer for Expendable, episode 8 of Spartan Ops.

The episode contains five new missions, with the good ship Infinity still under attack by the luminous Promethean forces.

The Team Doubles playlist features three game types: Infinity Doubles (Infinity Slayer in 2 vs 2), CTF Doubles (Capture the Flag customised for two-on-two) and Doubles Pro, a stern mode with instant respawns, personal ordnance and radars all disabled, plus preset loadouts.

Rogue and Tracker are the two new specialisations unlocked as part of Monday's Halo 4 rollout. The Halo Bulletin describes them like so:

Rogue: Spartan optimization for single-operative missions which require a lone Spartan to be deployed on their own for incredibly long durations of time, even years if required. The Stability armor mod allows users to increase their aiming stability when being fired upon.

Tracker: Spartan optimization for long-range target tracking (trans-continent and off-world), particularly in scenarios where conventional tracking has failed or such a substantial time has passed that the trail has gone cold. The Requisition armor mod allows users the ability to recall their own ordnance requests in order to acquire more helpful weapons in the field.

Spartan Ops episode 8, Rogue and Tracker specialisations and the Team Doubles playlist arrive from Monday February 4.
