Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary MP details revealed; Halo: Reach title update detailed

Posted By | On 14th, Sep. 2011

343 Industries has given us some details on Halo: Anniversary’s multiplayer. First and foremost, one of the most beloved maps in Halo history with Breakneck, the spectacular remake of the classic map Headlong, will be included in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.

Announced today at the Tokyo Game Show, Breakneck (also known as Headlong in classic mode) takes you back to Halo 2’s fan favorite large-scale multiplayer map.

Have a look at some of the multiplayer footage revealed:

Headlong provides a large, skyscraper-hemmed construction site with numerous vantage points for clever snipers as well as a large central basin for excellent vehicle combat, a map for 8-16 players.

Also in Tokyo, 343 Industries revealed new details around the title update for Halo: Reach. The update features the return of the iconic Halo: Combat Evolved Magnum pistol and classic playlists.

The update will also introduce a myriad of multiplayer fixes fans have been clamouring for, including balancing armour abilities like Armour Lock and Active Camo. Players will be able to experience a first taste of some of these changes when beta playlists become available on 4 October. The beta will be open to all Halo: Reach players with an active Xbox Live Gold membership, and will culminate with the launch of a full suite of classic playlists and map variants when Halo: Anniversary arrives on 15 November.

Stay tuned for more info.
