Halo Infinite’s Network Co-Op Test Is Finally Live
The online co-op test of the Halo Infinite campaign is now live, it has been announced.
People who are registered for the Halo Insider program can participate in the test on Xbox and PC. One must then select ‘Halo Infinite – Insider’ via Previews on the Xbox Insider Hub. The test runs until August 1. 343 Industries asks if players can report bugs as soon as they come across them. The test also includes the ability to replay main missions.
Halo Infinite’s online co-op campaign has been delayed several times. For example, it was announced at the end of last year that the mode would be released in May of 2022 at the earliest, and it became clear in April of this year that the mode is intended to be playable for everyone sometime at the end of August. Yesterday extensive gameplay of the co-op campaign was posted online.
Last month, 343 Industries published a thorough blog post on what to expect during the test, and the company has a dedicated support page for the flight on its official website. Note that Steam gamers will only be able to participate in the test if they have received an invitation.
343 Industries had planned to begin the test during the week of July 11th, and while that technically occurred, it was a bit later than you might have thought. The test concludes at 1 pm ET on August 1st. The exact release date for campaign co-op and mission replay is unknown, but 343 Industries stated in an April roadmap that “late August” is the aim. The release date for the split-screen co-op was indicated as “TBD” on the roadmap.
