Halo 4 December 10th Matchmaking Update Brings In the Crimson DLC

Posted by Scott Grant | 07 Dec 2012 |

Of course.

Next week’s Halo 4 Matchmaking update gives a nod to two consistent performers and brings in one big, obvious update: The Crimson Map Pack DLC playlist.

Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack


The Team SWAT and Team Regicide playlists will be sticking around this week, since they both proved to be very popular, but the King of the Hill playlist will bow out in favor of the Crimson DLC playlist. This playlist will be a 6-on-6 list with the following game mode and map combinations:

• Infinity Slayer – Shatter
• Capture the Flag – Shatter
• Extraction – Shatter
• King of the Hill – Shatter
• Infinity Slayer – Wreckage
• Capture the Flag – Wreckage
• King of the Hill – Wreckage
• Oddball – Wreckage
• Infinity Slayer – Harvest
• Capture the Flag – Harvest
• King of the Hill – Harvest

The Crimson Map Pack maps, Harvest, Shatter and Wreckage will also be injected into some of the existing playlists in the following manner:

• Infinity Slayer – Harvest
• Big Team Infinity Slayer – Wreckage and Shatter
• Dominion – Shatter
• Capture the Flag – Harvest and Wreckage
• SWAT – Harvest
• Team Slayer Pro – Harvest

343’s BS Angel also let us know that a Title Update is in the works for Halo 4, saying, “We’ve been hard at work on a Title Update, which is slated to release soon. You’ll know it’s out when you’re prompted to download an update upon logging into Halo 4. We will detail the contents of the TU after it’s out (as it contains exploit fixes we don’t want abused any more than they already are while they’re live). We can tell you right now that this particular TU tackles actual game and gameplay issues, not sandbox tweaks and balances. We have another TU in the works and will continue working on the timing and content of the next one. We will update everyone when we have additional information.”

See you all on the UNSC Infinity!
