The lights are on
Halo 4 officially launches today and things haven't been completely smooth. Microsoft says it's currently investigating server issues that have caused problems for some gamers.
"As you can imagine, there are a tremendous number of new players connecting to Halo 4 right now," Microsoft said. "We’re aware that some users are experiencing occasional issues connecting to the Halo 4 services, and we are currently narrowing down possible solutions."
It's unclear at this time how widespread these issues are. Having trouble playing Halo 4 online? Sound off in the comments below.
I had some problems connecting a few hours ago, but everything seems to be fine now and has been for the last hour.
This is why I play single player usually before multiplayer. I know the story behind some of the maps, get told a great story, and online usually has several issues...For the first few days or so.
Well this isn't surprising news at all.
saw that coming. Microsoft always has server issues when big games come out. Not surprising the least.
I'm having problems with the game.....guess it doesn't work on PlayStation haha
I've been trying to play with friends for about 2 hours now, but I still can't join them regularly. I can play a game with someone else about every 30 minutes or so, but you can't back out after a match and keep your lobby. That's usually where things go haywire after you've been trying to join a friend's lobby for 10+ minutes.
Other than issues with connecting to friends, there have been issues with lag and people backing out/getting kicked from games, and the game not filling with more players. 4v2 matches are not fun.
The thing that sucks for me is that a friend and I wanted to practice a bit in custom games, but we have nothing unlocked and we're forced to play on XBL to get stuff... doesn't help hat my subscription has expired... I guess it's campaign for a while. Why can't custom games have everything unlocked like in COD...
You need to play Singleplayer first (co-op is included in this)! Multiplayer is the bonus afterwards.
I am notgoing to say anything mean. I am not the biggest Halo fan. But it is unfortunate there are problems with MP on launch day.
