Halo: Reach PC Beta Reveals Plans For Two More ‘Test Flights’
The folks over at 343 Industries have been putting a whole lot of effort into the PC beta for Halo: Reach, part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection slated to launch later this year. In the interest of getting everything ‘perfect’ prior to release, said PC beta is comprised of multiple ‘testing flights’ that allows players to mess around with numerous aspects of the game. We’ve already seen a few different phases of the PC beta, and now it has been revealed that two more testing flights will be coming soon.
The first upcoming PC beta phase was already revealed to be a flight for the game’s Firefight mode, the wave-based co-op mode in Halo: Reach. It has now been confirmed that we will also be getting yet another beta after this one, with confirmation via Halo Waypoint stating that it will focus entirely on PvP, via the game’s competitive modes. There is unfortunately no word on when we can expect what is for now presumed to be the final beta test, though that doesn’t mean things can’t change further down the line. More details on the test flight for the Firefight mode will also be coming soon.
The upcoming release of The Master Chief Collection represents the first time that all the games in the series will be available to play on PC, with the exception of Halo 5. The collection is slated to launch later this year.
