The Halo Infinite campaign co-op beta is coming next month and you can sign up now
The Halo Infinite campaign co-op beta is starting soon, so you don’t have to wait much longer before playing the long-delayed feature for yourself.
“With the arrival of Halo Infinite Campaign Network co-op later this year,” the developers say in a Tweeter (opens in a new tab), “we plan to release it to Halo Insiders in July. Sign up and make sure your Halo Insider profile is up to date for a chance to participate!” (If you’re unfamiliar with Microsoft’s testing program terminology, “flight” simply means beta.)
To be part of the Halo Insider program and be eligible for the test, you can go to the official website (opens in a new tab) and press the “join Halo Insider” button. From there, you’ll need to sign in to your Xbox Live account, set your email address and preferences, and sign up for the program under the “Console Flight” or “PC Flight” tabs. Developers at 343 Industries have not yet specified which platforms the beta will be available for, but it’s likely that tests will arrive for PC and console eventually.
This is purely a network co-op beta, which means you won’t be able to play split-screen. As the developers have already noted, online co-op is slated to launch in late August, but local split-screen co-op won’t arrive until at least Season 3, which begins November 8.
Halo Infinite co-op has already been delayed multiple times. When the game launched, the developers said the feature wouldn’t be available until Season 2, and while we were hoping it could make the season launch in May 2022, that turned out not to be the case. Here’s hoping the delays and beta will ensure a great experience when co-op finally kicks off.
Expect plenty of information about first-party Xbox titles on the Showcase of Xbox and Bethesda games This weekend.
