'Halo 4: Spartan Ops' Episode 5 Uncovers Dead Memories

What's an ancient AI doing with human memories? And what's it doing on Requiem? Next week's "Spartan Ops" DLC promises to reveal more about the artifact that the crew of the UNSC Infinity uncovered as the enemy starts to amass their forces in the margins.

My memories of it are a little sketchy, but if I recall, last year's novel "Halo: Cryptum" might hold the answer to how and why an alien AI would contain human memories--along with some of what we know about the Didact's plan in "Halo 4." But in any event, it's a curious development.

From the official synopsis:

This week on Halo 4: Spartan Ops -- Secrets are revealed, trusts betrayed, and the Sangheili leader Jul 'Mdama's ultimate plan nears success. As Infinity's command crew makes a discovery that changes everything we thought we knew about the Forerunner Prometheans, the Spartans must attempt to rescue one of their own.

Episode 5 of "Spartan Ops" will be available on Monday.
