Halo 4: New armor mods, playlists coming August 19

Title Update Monday arrives just ahead of 'Champions Bundle' DLC

343 Industries will release a Title Update for Halo 4 on Monday, August 19, that will introduce new armor mods and playlists to the game for free.

Two new armor mods will let all players equip new support upgrades. These include 'Recharge', which decreases the time it takes for your shields to recharge, and 'Survivor', which ejects you out of a vehicle if it's about to explode.


Some playlist changes "based on community feedback" will also be introduced, as 343i explains, "Rumble Pit will have a total of 15 new voting options including new Slayer game types, new objective game types (King of the Hill and Oddball) and Regicide, which is being consolidated and will now exclusively be available in the Rumble Pit playlist.

Below are some Slayer and objective game types from the Halo 4 Global Championship playlist that will be introduced to the Rumble Pit lists:

  • Haven Oddball
  • Skyline Rumble BRs
  • Simplex Rumble BRs
  • Abandon King of the Hill
  • Landfall King of the Hill

This comes just one day ahead of the release of the Halo 4 Champions Bundle DLC.

Set for release on August 20, the Champions Bundle includes three DLC offerings: the Bullseye Pack, Steel Skin Pack and Infinity Armor Pack. Full details through that link.
