New Hero in Halo 4 Revealed to be in Spartan Ops

Remember a few days ago when the Official Xbox Magazine (OXM) said that there would be a “new hero” in Halo 4? Well we received that July edition of OXM and we now know exactly who that new hero is.

According to OXM, Master Chief actually encounters the UNSC Infinity, the largest human UNSC ship to date, at one point of the Halo 4 campaign. And as a result, you’ll be able to play as a member on board the UNSC Infinity, during Spartan Ops. This member that you get to play as is the new hero.

What’s interesting is that the new hero is actually a part of a new breed of Spartans known as the Spartan IV. So you’ll still have your fabulous suit of armor and your Assault Rifle after all. You just won’t have Master Chief’s awesomeness.

So there you have it, folks. The Spartan IV on board the UNSC Infinity in Spartan Ops is the so called “new hero”. So I guess you won’t have to worry about a new character taking over Master Chief’s spot light after all.

I hate to say it but I think I was expecting a bit more. Maybe the news was just a tad bit overhyped? Probably. But let’s just look at the bright side: We now know a hell of a lot more about Spartan Ops than we ever did.
