Spartan Ops Operation Querry

So it seems that a XBox Live Gold Subscription is required to play Spartan Ops. Disappointing but not surprising.

My question is, how will Spartan Ops work?

Will the missions be downloadable and then playable offline or will a constant connection be required like PvP?

Just wanting to know because not all of us have ready access to a decent connection and I’d rather not have to be linked to the net just to play it by myself or lanning.

War Games are gonna be playable split screen with no connection but those maps are included on the disc (or as DLC) so here’s hoping that the “Episodes” for Spartan Ops will run in a similar manner.

Any insights are, as always, greatly appreciated.

(And didn’t the E3 presentation look shiny :slight_smile:

The first season, or at least part of it, is already on the disc.

I don’t know for sure, but my educated opinion is that you only need online connectivity to download them, but not to play them.

It doesn’t make sense that you’d only need Gold to download the files. That practically means DLC only for Gold members.
