Part of their weekly update, which aired September 24th, a bunch load of updates are heading towards your very beloved Halo: Reach. Some of the more awesome ones are having SWAT added in as a playlist, so now you can choose when you want your head popped off quickly. The campaign matchmaking feature will also go live October 15th. Team Slayer will also get reblanced with some new game modes thrown in. Also, a little sneak peek for a raise to the level cap is mentioned, so don’t enjoy your time at the top you Lt.Colonel Grade 3. Then again, if your already a Lt. Colonel Grade 3 already, maybe your spending alittle too much time on hal anyway. Also, Bungie explains alot of good stuff about their game, so hit the source link for some more information.

An avid gamer since birth, I consider myself a new-age gamer. My first system was the N64, but the first system I really cared about was my Xbox Original. I'm a computer science major in college, and spend all my money on games, and stuff I don't need. I've never played Zelda or many Mario games in my youth. I'm also a huge sports fan, and a chick flick lover. My favorite games include Gears of War, Halo, Fallout, GTA, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
