Halo: The Master Chief Collection Gets Significant Matchmaking, Party Update

343 Industries is applying another bandage to Halo: The Master Chief Collection today. The company has rolled out a new update designed to further improve some of the lingering problems from the game’s November 11, 2014, launch.

Included in the patch are matchmaking improvements that seek to improve success rates, speed up searches, and generally improve stability of the process across the included titles. Parties, which have also had some issues, will see improved stability, also.

On the gameplay front, both Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 are getting some tweaks. In the original Halo, 343 has fixed a problem with aim assist that actually pushed the reticle away from enemies. Hit detection across host and client devices is also improved.

Bonus XP, a studio made up of many former members of Ensemble Studios, has announced its first project. The team is working on a hybrid real-time strategy / role-playing game called Servo.

The premise is that humanity has fled Earth after mucking it up somehow. After many years, we’ve returned to fix that problem (which we assume are the little non-robotic critters, the Bloomspawn, in the video below).

Watch Other People Play Evolve With New, Free Observer Mode

about X hours ago from

If you’re like me (friendless and alone), you might not have had success playing Evolve. It’s a game that thrives when you have friends to coordinate with (or stomp as the monster).

Now, you can enjoy Evolve even if you don’t interact with other human beings regularly. The new Observer mode will allow a new crop of shoutcasters to try their hand at commentating matches.

And if you are a group that wants to add an observer to your match, you can do so from the hunter and monster selection screen. Once added, the observer can select each of the players and jump to their view.
