It is not yet known when the new Halo title will be released. However, the developer 343 Industries has now revealed how, with a little luck, you can play Halo Infinite earlier.
At the end of July, Halo Infinite still doesn’t have an official release date. All that is known is that the shooter will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC at the end of 2021. We have learned a lot about the next appearance of the Master Chief from 343 Industries in the past weeks and months via developer updates. Now the studio has revealed how you can get a first impression of the game before it is released.
How to play Halo Infinite before release?
According to 343, there should be a whole series of beta phases before the release, called flights by the studio itself, which will prepare you for the start of the Xbox exclusive.
According to the blog post, it could start next weekend. The first flight will be played against bots. More detailed information will be announced in a livestream, which will inform about the current build of the game. What you have to do to take part in the flights is now available in detail.

Can anyone take part in the Halo Infinite Beta phases?
Unfortunately, no. Only a certain number of players will receive an invitation to the flights. Registration does not guarantee that you will be able to play Halo Infinite in advance. 343 Industries:
The number of Insiders being invited, and the criteria by which these Insiders are selected, will vary given the specific scope and goals for a flight.
However, the number of participants will not be small. Hundreds of thousands of fans are to be invited to the first flight. At a later time even more.
According to 343 and also Xbox boss Phil Spencer, the release of Halo Infinite should be fixed towards the end of this year. In addition, the Halo brand is to be continued for the next ten years even in the event of a flop by Infinite.
