In case you haven't noticed, the Halo Infinite Beta is now live. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to play one of the most anticipated games of the year, relax. We'll tell you everything you need to know about the expected duration of the Halo Infinite Beta, and when it's going to end. It's hard to believe that Halo has been going strong for 20 years now, and there are suggestions that this may be the final Halo game for at least the next decade. With an expected release date of December 8th, we don't have long to wait for the full game to launch. But hey, if you can start experiencing this early, why wouldn't you? Here's everything you need to know.
How Long Is Halo Infinite Beta?
The Halo Infinite Betaofficially launched on November 15th. It was timed deliberately to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original game. Season 1 of the game, entitled Heroes of Reach has also launched, and it has been confirmed that any progress made during the Beta period will carry over into the full release of the game.
The Beta itself gives players access to the full multiplayer game. This includes the various game modes Arena, Big Team Battle, and the Academy. However, the Campaign mode will not be available until the game is officially launched on December 8th.
When Does Halo Infinite's Beta Period End?
The Beta period is due to run right up until the game is launched on December 8th. So anyone who drops in now will be able to enjoy continuous, uninterrupted access to the game until launch. In theory, this should make it a pretty seamless transition from the Beta into the full game.
In some respects, it isn't really a Beta period in the conventional sense. There may be a few bugs that players will encounter. But the fact that the first season of the game has already started, suggests that this is more of a decision to try to smooth the expected surge of players in the early days of the game. There will almost certainly be a strain on the servers come launch day. But if there are players who have already had access to the game for a few weeks, it might reduce the traffic on day one. Whatever their reasons might be, Halo fans have absolutely no reason not to get stuck in.
