Developer 343 Industries is offering two technical previews this weekend and next (September 23-26 and September 30 – October 3) focused on “full multiplayer”.
All Halo Insiders with eligible accounts as of September 13 are invited to participate in the final tests. For more details, visit the Halo Waypoint website.
The September 23-26 event will focus on 4v4 Arena Battles, while the September 30-October 3 event will look at 12v12 Big Team Battles contests.
In order to ensure that enough players will participate to test the game’s online services, the test will only be active during certain times each day.
Microsoft last month confirmed a Halo Infinite release date of December 8, 2021.
While Halo Infinite’s campaign and multiplayer will be released on this holiday, the game will not launch as the full package previously planned. 343 Industries recently confirmed that it has postponed two Halo Infinite launch modes until next year in order to release the game in 2021.
