Halo 4 gets a 30MB patch out now, includes fixes for exploits and gameplay issues
Patch notes detailed.
Halo 4 has gotten a new patch which totals to about 30 MB and fixes a lot of issues. 343 Industries have released the title update patch notes as well, and there are a lot of things that would make a Halo 4 player happy.
Of course, they will only fix things that they find needs attention but there are a lot of complaints in the official forums from players who have one issue or another. Halo Waypoint’s Jessica O’Shea mentioned 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.”
The patch takes the game to version 1.02 and it’s surprising that the game has had a few patches since its release. That’s a quite great achievement which shows that they really released a polished game.
The game came out earlier last month and has been met with great critical and commercial success. You can read our review over here.
