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.
Only had one game crash on me and noticed some skewed stats, but they seem to be back to normal now.
I've had no errors...Hooray for me.
Also the campaign is excellent, full of variety, and has a ending that will be remembered for years.
Damn good game with a damn good story, and damn good online...for me at least.
This game is amazing.
I got set back 3 levels from SR14 back down to SR11, I'm sometimes having trouble connecting with friends, I get quite a bit of lag and it often goes to the black screen. Other than that there isn't much else. Good game.
I am having troubles with my Spartan Ranking. It will glitch and change my armor to default, joining partys with my friends, Spartan Ops was down and sometimes some of the playlists dissapear.
I haven't had problems, and was able to play several rounds of multiplayer. Very CoD-influenced (sprinting, killcams, care packages, etc), but it honestly makes it more appealing. It's fresh, but still retains the Halo feel. I'll definitely be putting more time into this one. Now, if we can only do something about that BRs insane firing rate...
i played last night and didnt have any issues.
i will also add that Halo 4s multiplayer is absolutely amazing. i havent been hooked into a Halo game like i am now since Halo 2.
Actually to be honest this is the smoothest launch I have played in quite some time in terms of online multiplayer. The last time I tried to play multiplayer at launch was Battlefield 3 and yikes was that horrible.
I haven't played that much multiplayer but I must say so far it's pretty awesome. I enjoy the ordinance drops, and everything else for the most part. I think it was one of the most well balanced FPS online experiences I've had. I really enjoyed the campaign (beat it on heroic) Legendary here I come!
Yikes. That's scary.
I played the night of and day after without experience any problems. There was a minute long lag one to get into special ops but that was it. Went a lot better than the Diablo III night. Ha!
Yea it was very hard getting into matchmaking. And when I did, my ranks were showing, and I wasn't able to use my loadouts. Also Spartan OPs wasn't available.
I am going to finish the campaign before I even touch multiplayer so things should be worked out by the time I dive into it. No worries for me.
I kept getting disconnected from the servers and getting a message saying "you must be connected to Xbox live" to play the multiplayer but my account was still connected to Xbox live.
I played a couple hours last night and had no problems. Matchmaking was quick and there were no errors of any kind.
The only problem I've had is that it is very laggy during campaign or Spartan ops missions, I checked my connection and my friend checked his, they were fine. Multiplayer is smooth though.
Server errors seem are the rule these days, rather than the exception.
