343 Industries will push out a title update for Halo 4
this Monday, August 19, ahead of the launch of the game's Champions Bundle DLC
, which is scheduled for the next day. The patch, in addition to ending the current Global Championship online qualifier, also adds two new Support Upgrades: Recharge, which reduces the amount of time it takes for your shields to recharge, and Survivor, which automatically ejects the player from any vehicle on the verge of exploding.
The update also adds Spartan Ops levels to matchmaking, specifically two chapters from Episode 1 (The Challenge
), one chapter from Episode 2 (Gagarin
) and two chapters from Episode 5 (Spartan Miller
, Nothing Can Go Wrong
). Meanwhile, the game's Crimson Map Pack
will be removed in preparation for the arrival of the Champions Bundle.
