It is that time of the week again where we learn of new details on the upcoming Matchmaking update for Halo 4, starting Monday, we will be getting another rotational playlist to devour your eyes for a week.
Team Regicide – NEW PLAYLIST!
Team Regicide is based off the new Free for All experience known as Regicide which is a normal FFA gametype, but the player in the lead is the king, the more kills the king gets, the higher bounty you have as the king, and when you die, what ever your bounty is will be given to the player who killed you in points.
“Team Regicide features several medals, HUD, an announcer VO unique to the team variant, and is a heavily teamwork-focused game type, emphasizing many 4 vs. 4 team encounters and strategy. Unlike FFA Regicide, the King’s bonus does not fluctuate as the King gets kills.”
Below are the maps that will appear in the Team Regicide playlist.
Here is a preview of the planned settings for Team Regicide.
|Teams||4 vs. 4|
|Score to Win||750|
|King Logic||Leading player [medal points] from each team|
|Regicide Points||25 Fixed|
|Time Limit||12 Minutes|
Other changes & information
Just like last week, SWAT fans will be happy that for yet another week, it will be staying as a playlist, keep in mind that SWAT isn’t a permanent playlist at this time, it is still rotational, so make the most of it before it is removed.
Just like last week, the next five Spartan Ops missions will be added to the Spartan Ops Matchmaking hoppers and the previous five will be removed from play.
Every time an update is released, there are also various fixes to maps & settings which aren’t revealed until the Halo Bulletin on the Wednesday, so once those details are released, I’ll update the news post.
The update is scheduled to go live at 10AM GMT (2AM PST) on Monday, December 3rd.
