Season 1 of Spartan Ops is re-running strong, and we want to reward you for rewarding yourself, by playing Spartan Ops the weekend of May 3-5. When you play and complete 10 Chapters of Spartan Ops, we will give you 10 Double XP Matches!
Once you receive your 10 matches on May 24th, you will be able to see your Double Experience Points stats appear during the post-game summary in the very next 10 Halo 4 Infinity Multiplayer games you play, whether it be Spartan Ops Chapters or War Games Matches, or any combination of the two.

Unfortunately I have the be the bearer of bad news. 343 Industries did state in a bulletin following the early weeks of Halo 4’s launch answering questions, and one of them was asking if they had any plans to have Theater Mode support for Halo 4’s Campaign and/or Spartan Ops.
As of January 23rd, 2013 bs angel confirmed the bad news that at this point they have no plans to implement Theater mode support for Campaign or Spartan Ops. This does not rule it out completely, but it definitely rules it out for the time being. This is a sad day for many people who enjoy the artistic side of making machinimas or screenshots and for those who enjoy sharing those awesome moments, or moments you aren’t proud of but still can’t help sharing. I’m talking about you fails of the weak.
As the title shows, this bulletin was jam packed full of information, nothing specific, but LOTS of information for the remaining month of January and a look into February so let’s get started. The Bulletin opens with a letter from Frank O’Connor about the year.Then come the big announcements in regards to Halo 4 Multiplayer Playlists, Specialization releases, the new DLC map pack, and the title update.
Halo 4 Infinity Challenge Qualifier Phase ends January 12th
Halo 4 Infinity Challenge Final Phase begins Jan 12th, and ends January 19th (the leaderboards will be reset and it will be a mad dash for 7 days to win)
