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 feel like this happens to all multiplayer games on launch...
Yeah I had a few bugs. Such as it saying I'm level 1 when I was 20 and not letting me use my classes. But other then that it's sooo amazing!
Was going to happen with the amount of people that will be playing.
At first it started as the inability to join other parties. Then it turned into game sessions closing once the initial match ended. Now it's pretty damn laggy in games.
So far, though, I like the multiplayer better than Reach's counterpart.
Bought Halo 4 for the single player mostly. Things have gone flawlessly.
I had server problems for a few hours, but now everything is all good.
it seems every game release is having problems in multiplayer...
I can attest to this.
Yeah I am.
The fifth level of the campaign glitched out on me and my friend playing co-op. After a certain point (will not spoiled it for anyone) the level just dissappeared and could not continued which really suck.
No errors for me.
This is not a surprise...
My buddies and I were unable to sync into a party larger than two members. It was pretty baffling and after some troubleshooting, we figured out that it was LIVE's service acting janky, so we just set up a local connection and played through Legendary in that set-up for most of the night. Around 5am we tried forming a party through LIVE again and found success, so we finished up the rest of the game that way. Great ending.
It's common for any major release. I'm not having issues. But the ones one that do exist will go away over the next week or so.
Can't get into the same party as some people, had to play by myself :(
I can't play with friends, once I invite them to the party is boots them. So I have to play with randoms
I've only played one match online and haven't had problems yet, but I had problems in the campaign with an entire portion of a level not rendering. "Reclaimer" is broken for me and I haven't been able to fix it yet.
they should of done a open beta like they did with halo 3. to test the servers before hand. but they will fix it asap.
People are making it sound A LOT worse than it is. The game de-ranked me back to SR1 but after restarting it went back to normal.
In terms of connection issues I have had none. Not even a little lag.
I haven't experienced a single problem yet I wasn't even aware they had server issues.
