Halo Reach Beta problems
« on: May 04, 2010, 12:10:48 PM »
Bungie has warned gamers to expect some "suboptimal performance" on the Halo Reach beta today following various technical issues.

The beta went live yesterday evening with three available playlists featuring the Arena mode of four versus four Team Slayer contests.

However, Bungie subsequently posted a message on its official website saying that some "technological fix-ups" had been required to address problems in the beta.

The developer claimed that the beta should have improved considerably today, but warned participants to still expect possible slowdowns in performance.

"The beta is not quite fully operational, but it should be moving at a pretty good clip now that our online team has applied some technological fix-ups," said Bungie.

"You should still expect suboptimal performance, but you should also now be getting games with relative ease."

In a later message, the studio added: "Rest assured that we're working on the issues and as soon as things start to smooth out, we'll let you know. Thanks for your patience."

The Halo Reach beta will be available on Xbox 360 until May 19, ahead of the game's release in the autumn.

Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

I played a few rounds of the beta last night.  I'm actually surprised by how many changes they made.  It is a little slower-paced, and allows a good team to use actual strategy in combat.

The class system is a sort of dumbed down version of Bad Company 2, which is nice.  If you have a good team that knows how to use the classes, strategy will beat bullet-sprayers every time.

I'm not sure if the Halo 3 freaks are going to enjoy this game as much as they thought.  But I do think fans of other multiplayer games may finally find Halo enjoyable.

It is a beta so there can be bugs, it's not like they just released it and hoped for the best like Gears 2 :P

atelast they get chance to fix and fine tune the system before the actual game release.

Well said Epic Fail..... the idea of the BETA is to find glitches so Bungie can work em out.

Played the beta for a couple of hours this morning and I'm pretty unimpressed tbh. So bloody slow compared to MW, Gears etc. I'll give some more time but its not exactly gripping me at the moment.

It's a Halo game, it's bound to be slow and unimpressive.  The entire franchise is built upon those foundations, why change now?   ;D

The beta might be slow and a little poor now but it might all change by the time the actual game comes out.

Mind you Halo's MP might be complete shite! but damn they do have a good story line going!! I thought the books was awesome and the story following Master Chief was very sexy  :D

Gears isn't slow MP? You need more skill in this than Gears which is a game of who can get the big weapon first or who manages to shotgun someone first or where can i stick a frag to get an easy kill.
