I’m a little late to the party on this one but it’s so immensely cool I had to share it. On Halo Waypoint those mentalists over at 343 Industries have produced a mini series chronicling the unseen events of the UNSC Infinity and her teams of Spartan IVs during the events of Halo 4.
Aside from being visually stunning it gives us a valuable insight into the UNSC post Covenant War, the UNSC Infinity as a vessel and the new generation of Spartans. These Spartans are volunteers, rather than victims of government sanctioned abductions, however they appear to be an even more stripped down version than the Spartan IIIs. Just as vainglorious as the IIIs but appear to lack the psychotically reckless behavioural problems that saw the IIIs spent before the war’s conclusion. Smaller in stature and, I suspect, physical prowess the Spartan IVs do sport the mark VII MJOLNIR armour dubbed GEN2.
Below are the first two episodes of Spartan Ops and I shall be posting the others as they become available. Enjoy.
