The lights are on
Just ahead of the DLC Champions Bundle, Halo 4 will receive an update to add new support upgrades, and new matchmaking playlists.
The Recharge support upgrade speeds up your shield recharge, and the Survivor upgrade will eject you from a vehicle right before it explodes. The update will also remove the Global Championship online qualifier, which is coming to a close, and put Rumble Pit in its place. Five new modes will be added to Rumble Pit that were part of the Global Online Championship playlist.
These updates will arrive on Monday, along with added Spartan Ops matchmaking, which will add a number of new Forerunner themed episodes. On Tuesday, the Champions Bundle will be available.

Our TakeA new Halo was announced at E3, but it looks like 343 Industries has no plans of letting Halo 4 fall to the side. It's admirable to see Halo 4 continue to get new content.

I like the sounds of the survivor upgrade.
Awesome! Will be great to get back to some Halo 4 action.
I've forgotten all about Halo 4. I haven't touched it in months. I think I'm going to jump back in it for a bit.
Sweet, that's never a bad thing.
That is really cool!! I have the Halo 4 fever right now
I love this game so much.
Sadly, I don't play it enough for my friends aren't always online...well I'm gonna play it alone and have fun!
Can't wait to use Survivor, It'll be sweet combined with Wheelman!
Wow, that Survivor perk sounds like it could be really useful. I always seem to be just a split second too late to bail out of a doomed Warthog. I'm also really looking forward to Champions; The Pit FTW!
By the way, Kyle: nice choice of header image for the article, it just oozes that Halo 2 MP vibe.
I love Halo 4 so much. Its a great game and the update is going to be cool making Halo 4 even better.
While the upgrades are cool, I think the Survivor upgrade may be a wee bit OP. If it's only one time use per life it should be okay. But otherwise it'll get really annoying really fast.
