Bungie plans to release the first Halo: Reach patch in October. It will add some game types and Forge maps, and will also squash bugs in the game and fix some of the balance issues in the game.
"The first matchmaking update for Reach will occur in early October and consist primarily of fixes for bugs and balance issues," Bungie posted. "We're not done testing them all yet, but when they're ready we'll fill you in on all of the little details. We'll also be adding some game types and Forge maps. Co-op campaign will be going live in October as well."
More details on the patch will be coming, and we'll share them with you as soon as we get them.
Bungie also released some startling statistics. We obviously already knew that Reach was successful, but seeing the success of a video game broken down to pure numbers is pretty impressive. For instance, over 31 million Halo: Reach multiplayer matches have been played since the game was released less than a week ago. .
Here are the numbers for ya:
- 31,000,000 Games have been played since launch
- 98,000,000 Player-games have been recorded
- 8,214,338 Daily Challenges have been completed
