Halo: Infinite’s first public testing has begun and will be up and running throughout the weekend. In an effort to provide a smoother experience on launch, players who are registered in the Halo Insiders program will be given access to Halo Infinite’s pre-alpha development build to make changes in the final version of the game based on player feedback.

While invites have already been sent out for Halo Infinite’s July flight, 343 Industries expects to invite more people over time for the next testing phase. You’ll receive an email along with instructions on how to access the early build if you’re selected.
Halo Infinite flight schedule

The flight has two playable game modes; Bot Slayer, where 4 players will face off against 4 bots in three maps (Bazaar, Recharge, and Live Fire). While the bots will be a bit easier to face off initially, they’ll keep getting tougher with each update. The second mode, Weapon Drill is a challenge mode where players can test out weapons and beat their friends’ high scores for bragging rights.
Weapons available in Weapon Drill
- MA40 AR
- MK50 Sidekick
- CQS48 Bulldog
- VK78 Commando
- S7 Sniper
- Plasma Pistol
- Pulse Carbine
The build is an earlier version and does not represent the final product, so expect things to be a bit janky.
Halo Infinite is set to launch later this year on PC (Steam, Windows Store) and Xbox.
