A new game update went live today which includes additional options for Social Matchmaking, additional game content to support events in February, and several bug fixes to areas as it relates to accessibility and stability, as well as improvements to reporting tools behind the scenes.
We know there’s still a sizable list of improvements the community has been vocal about requesting since launch. Many of these issues (PC & Xbox) were known and on the team’s radar prior to launch and some others didn’t surface until the game was out in the wild. With each small patch that doesn’t address these larger lingering issues (i.e. the audio problems some players have experienced) we know it can lead to frustration and disappointment across the community. Please know that the team has been steadily attacking a slew of bugs while also working on quality of life improvements and working towards a larger patch for MCC that will be next up on the release schedule. This will likely entail another flight for Reach as well. We appreciate all the feedback and tickets you’ve filed, and we thank you for your continued support and patience as we work to bring the remaining five titles to MCC on PC.
Here’s the full list of everything included in today’s update:
