Halo: The Master Chief Collection Playlist Changes | Beyond Entertainment

Comments

A few weeks ago, IGN revealed the planned launch day playlist lineup for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. However, 343 Industries’ community manager has let us know on our forums that plans have changed and let us know of the new updates lineup.

First off, here are some important changes to two specific playlists:

Halo: Combat Evolved:

At launch, there will NOT be a dedicated playlist for Halo: Combat Evolved. 343 Industries are working on tweaking the network performance of the game to ensure it is the best it possibly can be. When the playlist finally launches though, it will be a 2v2 playlist rather than a 4v4.

Players will still be able to play Halo: Combat Evolved in Team Slayer, Big Team Battle and of course – Custom Games.

Team Hardcore:

It was previously announced that Team Hardcore would contain tournament approved gametypes for both Halo 3 and Halo 2. However, 343 Industries has decided to wait before introducing Halo 3 into the playlist – this is due to the lack of Forged maps for Halo 3 yet including Amplified and Onslaught.

For a short time the playlist will only feature gametypes and maps from Halo 2 Classic.
