Developer 343 Industries has announced the start of the next multiplayer test of Halo Infinite. This time, all players who register for the Halo Insider Program before September 13th will be admitted. Details on the content of the preview have also already been presented. Accordingly, the makers are now focusing more on PvP battles in the arena. Sort of Destiny 2 Crucible battles.
The next Halo Infinite multiplayer test will take place in two weeks. This was revealed by 343 Industries on Twitter. And this time the number of participants in the preview will be increased significantly. Accordingly, all Halo Insiders who register for the program before September 13th will receive access to the multiplayer test. Halo Infinite will be available to try on September 24th. The developers have also released a video that provides more details on how to register as a Halo Insider.
The contents of the preview once again include battles against bots – to which some improvements have been made – as well as the Academy, which will be expanded to include a training mode. 343 Industries wants to focus primarily on arena PvP and is not only adding a new map, but also additional game modes. The Big Team Battle should also be available in the multiplayer test.
According to Community Director Brian Jarrard, the developers want to push the servers to their limits, which is why so many players are now allowed to preview. This should fix any problems before the upcoming launch on December 8, 2021 (for PC, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One).
The Halo Infinite multiplayer will be launched for the first time as a free-2-play title. The campaign is still chargeable – but can also be played by all Xbox Game Pass subscribers at the launch. Most recently, Microsoft also showed an exclusive Xbox Series X and a limited edition of the Elite Series 2 controller to mark the 20th anniversary of Halo.
