Now that the game has been out for a week — more or less — people have really gotten a chance to experience everything Reach has to offer. And, for as much as there is in Reach, the one thing that has been missing is co-op matchmaking for the campaign.
The first matchmaking update for Reach will occur in early October and consist primarily of fixes for bugs and balance issues. We’re not done testing them all yet, but when they’re ready we’ll fill you in on all of the little details. We’ll also be adding some game types and Forge maps. Co-op campaign will be going live in October as well.
Consider yourself warned: matchmaking doesn’t take into account whether or not you’ve conquered the campaign. Instead, players get to vote on which map they’re going to play, and if you haven’t already experienced the entirety of the story for yourself, there is the possibility of spoilers. My recommendation — and it’s probably pointless — is to play through the campaign, start to finish, all on your lonesome. Then, if you still have a hankering for a little more Reach, jump back into the co-op multiplayer.
It’s just because I care, people.
