Halo 4 Achievements list released

Spoilers lie inside.

Halo 4 developer 343 Industries has outed the game's list of Achievements, which offer up a meagre few clues as to the shooter's contents.

Spoilers lie below.

The main campaign appears to comprise eight missions, the last of which will unlock the usual difficulty based end-game rewards.

Once again you'll be asked to hunt down terminals, and there's complete a specific task to complete within each level for extra Gamerscore, such as finding and accessing Master Chief's records during the game's opening chapter.

Spartan Ops missions offer their share of rewards, too. They're also peppered with Red vs. Blue easter eggs for fans to uncover.

"Our primary goal when creating Halo 4's achievements was to reward milestones and increase replay value while balancing both difficulty and the breadth of game modes," community manager Jessica Shea wrote on Halo Waypoint.

"Our secondary goal was to live up to Halo tradition with weird ass names for some of them (hello, The Dongblainer!). While you will only be able to speculate on the exact nature of some of these achievements, here's a peek at their very basic in-game descriptions."
