Halo 4 DLC plans outlined by 343 Industries

343 Industries has outlined their plans for Halo 4’s downloadable content for January and February 2013.

Posting on the Halo Waypoint blog, the studio said: “As far as Halo 4 goes, we have some fun stuff planned for late January and beyond. After the Infinity Challenge concludes, regular Matchmaking updates will start up again (and that includes the return of the second half of Spartan Ops Season 1, which features brand new stories, missions and locations).”

Whereas some of the content is subject to change, this is the current plan:

Week of January 21st

  • Spartan Ops Episode 6: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
  • “Forge Test” playlist (name not final): A rotational hopper featuring small Forge maps such as Relay. Help us test these maps by providing feedback and reporting bugs that will assist us in getting them ready for Matchmaking!
  • Specializations: Pioneer and Pathfinder Specializations unlocked for all players.

Week of January 28th

  • Spartan Ops Episode 7: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
  • Grifball playlist: A rotational hopper featuring everybody’s favourite virtual sport. Catch the disease!
  • Specializations: Engineer and Stalker Specializations unlocked for all players.

Week of February 4th

  • Spartan Ops Episode 8: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.
  • Team Doubles playlist: A rotational hopper for those of you that like action of the 2 vs 2 variety.
  • Specializations: Rogue and Tracker Specializations unlocked for all players.

343 Industries added: “Matchmaking updates go live every Monday, and potential playlists for the month of February include both FFA and a new and improved version of Team Snipers.

“Late February will also bring both a Title Update and the Majestic Map Pack (which includes two small maps and one medium-sized map) to Halo 4 as well. Expect more information on all of those things next month.”
