Roll on Monday! It seems our prayers have been answered as a recent post on Halo Waypoint has revealed that the greatest sport in the universe will be coming to Halo 4 alongside two new specialisations for War Games, and Spartan Ops Episode 7 next Monday.
Writing on the Halo Waypoint blog, ‘BS ANGEL’ stated the following:
“On Monday, Spartan Ops continues with episode 7, which will once again contain five new Spartan Ops missions. Also premiering for the first time in Halo 4 is the Grifball playlist! We've worked closely with GrifballHub to create several different Grifball experiences in this new Matchmaking playlist . If you’ve never experienced Grifball, read on, because you’re in for a treat. If you HAVE experienced Grifball, then you probably just peed your pants with excitement and aren’t reading anymore."
The office is now a soggy mess.
Additionally, Monday's update will see the arrival of two new Specializations: Engineer and Stalker.
Engineer: Spartan optimization for the subversion, repair and reconstitution of a wide range of technology, including Covenant and Forerunner complex networks. The Drop Recon Armor Mod allows users to predict the location and time of an Ordnance Drop through an external suborbital monitoring system.
Stalker: Spartan optimization for target shadowing missions which require tactical invisibility despite operating at an extremely close range to the target itself. The Nemesis armor mod allows users to target and track down previous attacking enemies, highlighting them on the armor’s passive sensors.
The team is also beavering away on Competitive Skill Rank integration into Waypoint itself, and you can find further info on that, along with some tidbits on bug fixes and upgrades here.
Thanks for the tip Tobes84!
