Halo: The Master Chief Collection Getting SWAT Mode, and More
Despite Halo: The Master Chief Collection's rough launch, its latest update has us feeling hopeful.
While 343 Industries recognizes that there's still a lot of work that will have to go into Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it also recognizes that at least some things have to move forward. Because of this, 343 Industries has announced on Halo Waypoint that, while it works on its matchmaking troubles in the background, it is bringing two immediate changes to the game with its newest update.
The most important thing that 343 is bringing is the SWAT featured playlist. 343 is adding to the anthology "a variety of game types from Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 2 Classic, and Halo 4." It will also be bringing back other playlists throughout further updates including content from Halo: CE and Halo 4.
Among the other changes coming in this update, 343 has also updated the player count to be six minimum and eight maximum for Team Slayer, Halo 2 Classic, Halo 3, Halo Championship Series and SWAT. Some other changes include voting, which has been improved throughout multiple playlists, and the maximum party size for Big Team Battle, which has been increased to six players from four (soon be upgraded to eight).
Looking ahead, 343 is planning on releasing The Master Chief Collection's next major update early next week and will continue to try and fix all the matchmaking problems that have been plaguing players since its launch.
