More than half a year after the release of Halo Infinite (test), developer 343 Industries invites interested Halo Insiders to experience the entire co-op campaign with up to three friends as part of a beta test phase to play. Cooperative game progress can also be carried over to single player.

Registered Halo Insiders can participate in the beta

The beta test phase is scheduled to start on July 11, 2022 – at least for all players who have already purchased the Halo Infinite campaign or have Game Pass and have registered for the Halo Insider Program. After a total of ten days, the beta is scheduled to end on July 21st. Halo Infinite and its campaign as a standalone title are available for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S respectively.

For Xbox players, the Xbox Insider app is required and players should sign up for the Co-op Flight program there once the beta version is available. A key will be made available to players on Steam via the Halo Insider platform. Redeeming the key gives players access to download the beta build. Those interested on Steam are advised to register before July 5th, otherwise there is no guarantee they can be included in the beta.

Co-op save can be carried over to single player

As a beta tester of the sci-fi shooter's campaign, it should be noted that game progress from the beta test phase cannot be transferred to the campaign game mode, which will be released separately from the multiplayer game in August. Within the beta test, however, it is possible to take the co-op score that was earned with friends into single-player mode as well. It is also possible to replay missions that have already been completed.

The campaign can be played with up to three friends; However, when it comes to the group score, the host does not decide from which campaign mission to continue, but the game sets the game world to the lowest common denominator in terms of game progress. This is to ensure that players do not experience a mission in the wrong order. However, this system is potentially annoying for those players who are further along in the story than the rest of the group – for them it means that they have to play the same missions again. Each player plays as a Master Chief clone and can outfit themselves in their own gear, and each player must collect their own loot.
