Halo 4 Title Update Incoming, Re-introduces ‘X-Marker’

343 Industries has announced that it will be releasing another title update for Halo 4 which tackles more balancing issues and adds a few more fixes to the game. The developer also confirmed that the title update will re-introduce the “X-Marker,” a HUD icon that marks the location of a recent teammate death on your map.

“After the release of the last TU, we acknowledged there was more balancing to be done and more issues to address, and that we were actively working with the Halo 4 game team to investigate the feasibility of additional fixes. We can now announce that various teams across the studio have indeed been hard at work on an additional title update,” said 343.

The developer added that it would also be changing from a weekly playlist schedule to a bi-weekly one. ”That means there will not be a Matchmaking update next Monday. Overall, this will allow us to provide you with more substantial updates, bestow attention where it’s most needed and allow newly implemented playlists a longer runway to succeed or fail from both a gameplay nuance perspective as well as supplying more data to mine and learn from.

“In the coming weeks, you’ll see some sizable updates to many of our existing playlists as we prepare to launch CSR next month. We are also in the process of finalizing the design of our FFA playlist and nailing down a plan on how to best bring objective game types to larger parties.”

Are you happy to see the return of X-Marker? Let us know in the comments below.
