Halo 4 will receive a new title update on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s Champions Bundle launch.

The update was outlined over on the 343 Industries’ blog, starting with two new armour mods. The first is called Recharge which speeds up your shield recharge time, followed by Survivor which automatically ejects you from a vehicle before it explodes.

343 confirmed that as of Monday the Rumble Pit playlist will return as the marquee Free-For-All offering, and that Rumble Pit will feature 15 new voting options which include new Slayer and objective-based game types. Regicide will be available exclusively in the Rumble Pit playlist following the update.

In addition, Haven Oddball, Skyline Rumble BRs, Simplex Rumble BRs, Abandon King of the Hill, Landfall King of the Hill will all be added to Rumble Pit rotation.

The update will also see the following Forerunner-themed Spartan Ops missions added to matchmaking:

  • Episode 1, Chapter 3: The Challenge
  • Episode 1, Chapter 4: Sacred
  • Episode 2, Chapter 5: Gagarin
  • Episode 5, Chapter 1: Spartan Miller
  • Episode 5, Chapter 2: Nothing Can Go Wrong

Finally, the Crimson DLC will be removed in preparation of the Champions Bundle going live on Tuesday.
