Firefight Mode Will Return in Halo 5: Guardians

Fans of the Halo series may recall a particularly fun horde mode in Halo 3: ODST called "Firefight." Unlike many other games with similar features out there at the time, what made this one so special was the inclusion of the Halo Skull modifiers, which would change things up a bit every five rounds. Folks (ourselves included) have been clamoring for this beloved mode to return, and it looks like we'll finally get our wish soon.

Halo: Reach Campaign Matchmaking and Firefight Updates Are Live

It has been 36 days since Halo: Reach hit the store shelves.  In the past five weeks a ton of great games have come out for single and co-op play. Vanquish, Enslaved, Castlevania, Dead Rising 2, and Fallout: New Vegas are just a few good to excellent games that have all been vying for attention.  For many gamers I know, Reach has made the trip back to that 'Used Games' shelf in the sky in exchange for a down payment on an apartment in New Vegas, or a hovel in Albion.

Halo: Reach's competitive multiplayer will undoubtedly be where the truckloads of character XP (called "Credits") are at. It will also be where the truckloads of whining, singing, griefing, elitist turds are at. So imagine our tears of joy when the MTV Multiplayer blog snagged a few new details outlining how Credits and customization is handled in Firefight 2.0 - and how they're both to our benefit.

Halo Reach is slowly teasing us since its announcement last year. It started off slowly working up to the big release, now revealing character sexes, game upgrades from the rest of the series, and a 7 minute titillating video showing off some Firefight 2.0 moves. Kotaku.com had a bit of a hands-on session explaining a lot of the co-op changes, as well as the gender roles of the new Reach universe.

Bungie Regrets Not Including Matchmaking in Halo 3: ODST

We've previously covered, through various post-mortems and look-back interviews, how Bungie had considered Matchmaking for Halo 3: ODST, but how it was ultimately shot down due to the time and effort that would have been involved with such an undertaking.  Well last Friday OXM UK heard from Bungie's community boss, Brian Jarrard, that Bungie's biggest regret was "not being able to go back and make Firefight in ODST work and have match-making."
