By
Halo 4 users can earn Microsoft Points for playing online, it has been announced.

As part of the recently-launched Xbox Live Reward Scheme, members can earn up to 800 Microsoft Points by buying in-game items and playing the game's multiplayer mode.
Participating in 140 hours of online multiplayer before November 30 will net users 600 Microsoft Points, 70 hours of multiplayer equates to 300 Microsoft Points, while 35 hours of online play equals 100 Points.

Additionally, players can earn a 100 or 200 Point rebate by spending between 1500 and 3000 Microsoft Points on in-game content.

The Xbox Live Reward Scheme launched in September. Users can earn rebates and gifts based on their Gamerscore and the amount of money they spend online.

Halo 4, meanwhile, was released yesterday (November 6), accompanied by an extravagant aerial performance in London.

The game is set four years after the events of Halo 3, marking the return of iconic hero Master Chief and representing the beginning of a brand new saga.

In addition to the single-player campaign, Halo 4 features a robust multiplayer offering through War Games, which will take place on the Spartan training ship Infinity and will tie into the game's story.

The game experienced a number of server issues, however, including connection, matchmaking and ranking problems.
