well this armor appears to be on disk. you cant add in new armor via title update because you would have to install all of the map files again
Quote:343 hasn't officially confirmed that new armor is coming but with the evidence that's been supplied it does seem very likely. I personally really want to see a forerunner helmet, or the return of hayabusa, either would work fine for me. And this idea I got from BS Angel, a "WORT WORT WORT" word bubble armor ability that would follow you around next to your head.
In theory yes, that was how it worked for Halo 3, but we have no ideas of what changes that both Bungie and 343 have done to the game engine since then. Maybe they found a way around the "armor has to be outfitted to a map" system. And if a system like that is set up I think it could be solved with the addition of CEA or more maps, why? Because I think that all of the Reach maps run on a cross-reference system, if one of the old maps finds something on it that wasn't previously formatted for it, then it could cross-reference another map to see if it was recognizable by any part of the game. If it did come in a TU then it would be the equivilant of downloading one map, not all of them.
