We’ve known for a little while now that Halo 5: Guardians would be updated with 4K support on Xbox One X, but now we know that this patch will arrive tomorrow, squeezing it in just before the launch of the new console on November 7.
The Overtime update also features the return of Oddball as an official game mode, complete with some improvements like more medals and new announcer voice over audio. Oddball support on default custom game maps is coming soon, but you can still enjoy the new Oddball playlist when it releases tomorrow.
The general improvements and bug fixes are as follows:
- General stability fixes
- Improved JIP (“Join in Progress”) rules for Social playlists
- Fixed a number of exploits for Warzone
- BTB Assault matches now group properly under their own category in the Service Record
- Fixed an issue where REQ currency would sometimes not recharge properly when joining in progress to Warzone modes
- Fixed an issue where players who JIP’ed into Warzone games were not leveling up
- Fixed an issue where JIP’ing players sometimes caused momentary hitches
- Added a fix for the “black screen” bug (We believe this is addressed, and will be monitoring closely – please let us know if you experience this issue post-patch)
- Fixed a bug in which banned players could continue to play matches
- Fixed a bug where March on Stormbreak and Battle of Noctus home bases did not have player collision
- Fixed a rare crash players could hit if they died while picking up power-ups
Halo 5: Guardians already runs at 60 FPS on a standard Xbox One due to dynamic resolution scaling, so seeing it at a crisp 4K UHD resolution should be a treat.
