Anyone experience a black screen while loading into a game and being disconnected? I don't get a crash it just kicks me out but stays on a black screen every few games i play. Don't know why i tried re-installing, rolling back driver, updating driver.

Again, welcome to Reach. Note that the sound is currently bugged and they're still working on how the game feels above 60 fps because keep in mind Reach was originally built for a console running a PowerPC CPU, at 30FPS.
Glad to hear the sound is actually bugged. It sounded pretty bad to me, but wasn't sure if that's always how it had been.

I feel like the audio issues should have been worked out before launch. Sure, Reach is only $10 so it's not a HUGE deal, but you'd think 343i would have figured this shit out by now, lol.

You don't need to. Reach is included in Game Pass.
UK, updated MCC - Halo:Reach - play mission - sends me to Store to buy the game. (XB X version with XGPU) Can someone confirm is game included in Game Pass Ultimate?

I'm really confused with the message.

EDITED: I needed to download separately Reach Add-on. (10mb) It works now. Few screens here and there. It was very unintuitive, but it works.

Why doesn't my Xbox ever download updates until I turn the console on myself? Wasn't that a big feature for having instant-on enabled? I should be playing reach instead of sitting through the update.

So my brother is having a weird error with his account in reach. There's question mark for his tag and he can't join any games, right away goes to "game over".
I'm thinking it's a syncing issue, as I was able to play no problem.

Rough first evening. I'm getting fucking destroyed. Hopefully things pick up, cause now it was mostly just frustrating.

The progression seems really lame, too. I thought we were gonna get daily and weekly challenges? Now it's just... Grind exp, get season points for level ups, unlock every cosmetic item in a linear fashion one after the other with no actual input from the player?

lol thats pretty much halo. Every game is a sweat fest. And the progression is great, it had nothing before this update. Just ranks.

A completely linear progression system in 2019 without all the bullshit. It’s so beautiful.

So is the Steam version working fine? Because on Game Pass it seems to be a bit buggy. Twice now I've tried starting the campaign and each time I unlocked a random achievement during the opening cutscene (????) followed by the sound cutting off completely. Actually got a different achievement each time lol. I mean, what...

So I start the game that says "play" on its button in Xbox PC Beta App, I also restart from the Windows Menu > MCC and I just get this screen doing nothing. Guess I'll try to reinstall or something...



EDIT: uninstall and then clicking "pre-install" button now is downloading approx. 45Gb. Should go better this time...

Has anyone been having audio issues? I just played some of the campaign and it looks and runs great, but most of the time I can't even hear my own weapon being fired? The mix is very very odd sounding. I am using headphones btw.
