So, who has the TU?

I just downloaded the TU. It took about 10 seconds, you guys got it yet, or is it region specific?

Anyway, can’t wait for the Gametype :smiley:

I have it.

I got it. No sign of Game Types though. Is this the TU or is it a prep update.
I have known games in the past to do a small update before introducing the big update.

I think it’ll be about 24 hours or so…

inb4 85% bloom

So I just downloaded a update for halo reach and I went straight to custom games to see if I could change the bloom and theirs nothing different. Will we be able to do this or is it just custom playlists and gametypes?

That was the update. The changes will be coming soon. The gametype will come shortly after the update and the playlist with the actual changes in matchmaking will be available October 4th.

I have it. What about the 85% less bloom? Is it availiable now, or does it come into effect later?

You will be able to download a custom gametype which 343 will upload to their fileshare shortly after the TU is released.
You won’t be able to tweak bloom options.

Allow me to quote BS Angel for those of you coughnitwitscough* who don’t like to read.

> Halo: Anniversary, which is coming bundled with Breakneck and six additional Multiplayer playspaces, will be on a store shelf near you November 15th. According to my extremely precise and detailed calculations, that’s in roughly two months. Before that, though, on September 21st, you’ll be prompted to download a Title Update for Halo: Reach. It’s important to note that you won’t see any perceptible changes in Halo: Reach Matchmaking immediately after the download. In an effort to provide some much needed clarification, here’s a brief timeline of what you can expect in regard to the upcoming Title Update and beta matchmaking playlist:
>
> September 20th
> On this day, you will play Halo: Reach. You will lose a few games, primarily because of the jerkface that took the sniper and sent the bullets whizzing by the heads of your enemies, instead of directly through them.
>
> September 21st
> On this day, when logging into Halo: Reach, you will be prompted to download the Title Update. You’ll start playing, notice nothing seems different, and then recall that I said, in this here Bulletin as a matter of fact, “You won’t see any perceptible changes in Halo: Reach Matchmaking immediately after the download.” The majority of players will only complete the first two steps, though. Curses.

> October 3rd
> ‘Twas the night before the Beta Hopper, when all through the game, not a creature was stirring, even the Gúta were tame. The AAs were hung on the selection screen with care, in hopes that the hopper soon would be there. The Spartans were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of zero bloom danced in their heads…

> October 4th
> On this day, you will log into Halo: Reach and immediately notice—assuming you’re the observant type—a brand spankin’ new playlist. Changes will be isolated to that one particular area, so should you want some Vanilla Reach, you will simply access your regularly frequented playlists. Should you want a new flavor, though, I recommend diving directly into the beta matchmaking hopper. This 4v4 playlist will feature both Slayer and Objective gametypes, with DLC maps being optional. In an effort to provide an environment conducive to soliciting Title Update-specific feedback, all Objective gametypes will have DMR starts. Throughout the time this playlist is active, we’ll be watching not only the decisions you make in Matchmaking, but also the thoughts and opinions you leave in our forum. And it’s with that data that we’ll continue crafting the best possible playing experience for you and your Halo-loving buddies.

> Here are the specifics of the beta matchmaking playlist, if you’d like to drill further down. Please note all gametypes utilize 85% bloom (unless otherwise noted) with all the Title Update changes implemented—minus the addition of the Combat Evolved Magnum. It’s also worth noting this hopper is not intended to represent the makeup and content of the non-beta hoppers, and that all things are as ever, subject to change based on test data and numerous other super-secret and highly scientific factors—a few such things being whether or not the sun is shining and if Frankie has facial hair that day. (Just kidding, by the way. Well, for the former at least.)

You can find it here

Thank you for being patient.

It seems people have, I feel left out :confused: (Even if it doesn’t do anything yet)

> inb4 85% bloom

We don’t do that inb4 stuff here…

Have it.

bs angel said the gametype wont be out the same day the TU is out.

Just a heads up to all you peoples, I was not asked to download the TU while using the XBox Preview disc of Halo: Reach (if you don’t know what it is, then you shouldn’t be worried about it) So use your the actual Halo: Reach copy you bought (or won or whatever…)

Wow thanks. I actually have been using the preview disc as well that I received through testing one of the Xbox dashboard Beta tests. Since you posted this comment and I realized maybe that’s why I haven’t received the TU and it was. Luckily I have a spare copy that I bought on Launch day and it worked as soon as I put in the new disc and prompted me with the TU download.

Got the TU. I’m just a little surprised that it’s only 2 MB small.

> Got the TU. I’m just a little surprised that it’s only 2 MB small.

Same here.

Haven’t bothered logging in and updating, pretty pointless until I see a gametype. :slight_smile:

Not me cause of classes…Screw you college…
