X360A writes: During our recent chat with 343 Industries' Frank O'Connor, we got onto the subject of new multiplayer additions for both Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo: Reach, which is great news for Reach fans, as the Halo 1 remake's launch will see the introduction of several new multiplayer goodies.
"We're actually adding the M60 pistol to the multiplayer suite with a title update for Halo: Reach. Most of the functionality won't be available in Reach until Halo: CE Anniversary launches in November," said O'Connor. "We're making some subtle and some significant changes to the Halo: Reach gameplay, and we just want to make sure that there's a good balance of that when the game launches."
O'Connor noted that these changes will result in a new multiplayer playlist for Halo: Reach, enabling players to play a more classic Halo game experience, presumably without extras like armour abilities and so on. Pure, old-school Halo in essence.
