Halo Infinite is getting a technical multiplayer preview this weekend, with emails being sent out to those a part of the Halo Insider program. If you did not receive an invite to this weekend’s preview, fear not, for 343 Industries is planning to hold more “in the coming months.”
During a technical preview live stream, Sam Hanshaw the Producer of Live Operations at 343 Industries, said that this will not be the only technical preview that will be held for Halo Infinite. Hanshaw reassured fans that did not or may not get invited to the technical preview will have opportunities to join it in the future.
“This is the first and probably the smallest,” Hanshaw said on stream. “So as we grow and over the coming months as we put out new builds with additional features, they’re each going to have a larger and larger audience as we head towards launch.”
Important to keep in mind, however, that invitations are still being sent out. Yet, if you do not get invited to the technical preview this weekend, you can feel assured that there will be more opportunities for you to participate in a Halo Infinite technical preview.
This weekend’s technical preview, according to Hanshaw, is a two-month-old build, and 343 Industries is aware of a bunch of issues and bugs in the build. Nevertheless, the developer stressed in a blog post yesterday that bugs and other technical hiccups are expected throughout the technical previews. 343 Industries also confirmed yesterday ahead of the first technical preview that it will be examining player feedback in four areas: core gameplay, maps and modes, the Academy’s weapon drills, and menu and battle pass UI.
Halo Infinite’s first technical preview kicks off on July 29 and will run until August 1. For more information on the upcoming technical previews, you can check out the July 2021 edition of Inside Infinite.
