343 Industries have been hard at work since Halo 4's launch. With weekly updates bringing in new episodes of the Spartan Ops series and additional playlists to War Games. This week episode 8 will go live on Monday morning. You can check out the CGI cinematic below.
Also this Monday, Team Snipers will be making its return, finally. The gamemode pits two teams of four with no radar, no grenades, no armor abilities and no ordinance drops. Just you and your handy UNSC Sniper Rifle. A variant of Team Snipers will also be added, this one is Halo classic, Shotty Snipers. Shotty Snipers will arm the two teams with a Sniper Rifle for those long-range engagements and the trust shotgun for the up close and personal encounters.
Team Objective will be back also. This playlist will feature variants like Team Regicide, Capture the Flag, King of the Hill. Some tweaks have been implemented in the Team Doubles playlist that was added last week like the ordinance drops and the removal of the instant respawn.
