Halo Reach Beta Problems – Gamers who have been utilizing the Halo: Reach Beta have been experiencing some problems. Most beta launches are known to feature a few problems that are quickly sorted out in order to help the game run more smoothly. Similar errors have been found in Halo: Reach as well. A large number of users who downloaded the beta client reported connection issues early after the release. Bungie quickly released a statement claiming that they would be working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
“We’re aware and working to resolve slow matchmaking times and inaccessible playlists,” Bungie said on its website. “As soon as we’re back up and running at full capacity, we’ll make some noise. Stay tuned for more information and thanks for your patience,” Bungie said in their statement.
A number of other glitches have been widespread as well, including graphical glitches. These glitches are reportedly similar to the glitches that users were experiencing when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package was initially released to the public. The company is experiencing a large number of users signing in to download the beta, which has placed extra strain on the company’s servers, which could be adding to the already existing problems.
“There are a lot of people currently downloading the beta and we appreciate your patience as it continues to roll out.” Microsoft said in a statement.
It has been reported that as many as 600,000 players were attempting to play at once, at the height of the beta’s usage. This bogged down the servers. A statement has been released asking players to be patient, and not to reload the game or leave their parties if they are experiencing problems.
