Halo 4 Birthday Fiesta Preparationg
In today’s update, a playlist was added but hidden titled “Halo 4 Birthday Fiesta”. This playlist will become visible on November 6th, and be available for 24 hours.
Playing in any playlist, including this one on November 6th, will result in you unlocking the previously unreleased 343 Guilty Spark emblem in a few weeks, a look at that emblem can be seen below.
The title of the playlist should give you a pretty good idea what it is, but if you can’t guess, then it is something like this:
- Random Weapons
- Smaller Spartans
- Colourful Spartans
- Free for All
That’s all for this week, be sure to check back next week for information on the newly revamped Multi-Team playlist!
