Halo Reach / CE - Title Update!
We?re pleased to confirm that 343 is planning a Title Update (a small download which will add some interesting functionality) for Halo: Reach in preparation for the multiplayer aspect of Halo: Anniversary.
** This is the BEST NEWS since Reach Released maybe it will actually fix reach but lets read on and then hope for the best **
If your heart suddenly sped up, fret not, Reach fan. This is something that will not only sit side-by-side with Reach?s existing gameplay and will be accessible by both Reach and Anniversary players, but will allow 343 to make fairly significant changes to multiplayer gameplay within the confines of Matchmaking.
343 sees this as a way to better recreate the classic Halo: CE feel for the new classic maps, and it will let us do some things in gameplay that simply aren?t possible now. They are not going to give too much away until they through gameplay and bug-testing, but an example scenario would be allowing you to play, say, [REDACTED] with zero fall damage. Now that?s a limited and simplistic example, but it does speak to the way we?re approaching the changes philosophically. There are some bigger ticket ?classic? Halo gameplay elements which people are clamoring for and which we intend to do our best to deliver on. More news about specific changes and the timing of the Title Update will be forthcoming. But I can say that, having tried a few of the more significant tweaks, certain ?classic? elements are already working with beautiful and deadly efficiency.
