Hey everyone – Last weekend, I said I’d be back as soon as we had updates to share about the near-term playlist plans for Halo Infinite. I am happy to report that the Slayer playlist has been officially locked and uploaded for the update next week. Four new playlists: Slayer, Fiesta, FFA, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT) will be added via a services update on Tuesday, December 14.
As I noted last week, the team’s original plans for the Slayer playlist included a variety of new variants that weren’t ready in time for release before the holiday break. To address player feedback on Slayer in the near term, we will be releasing the base Slayer view to get started and will look to enhance and expand it with more variants in a future update.
Next week’s update will also include tweaks to the challenges including removing some frustrations for modes, reducing some requirements for others, making the weekly challenge less intense (getting there hard enough), and adding new challenges specific to new playlists. Personally, I’m eager to check out the new challenge category that relies on player points accumulation (a small initial step toward “performance-based XP”). We’ll have more details to share on Halo Waypoint next week.
Finally, on a semi-related note – please be aware that the team is aware of reports of intermittent hiccups affecting some BTB players over the past few days and is actively investigating them. In addition, the team continues to review the matchmaking of the ranks and players’ reactions about possible anomalies.
