Halo Infinite fans are counting down to the start of the game’s huge multiplayer beta weekend on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

In the run up to the big event, developer 343 Industries has finally shed some light on what fans can expect, as well as when everything takes place.

The first Halo Infinite weekend beta test takes place from September 24 until September 26. A second beta will take place the following weekend.

Unlike recent demos for games like Call of Duty Vanguard, the Halo Infinite beta will be split into smaller chunks across the entire weekend.

The first part of the beta starts at 10am PT and runs until 2pm PT. For UK fans, that’s 6pm until 10pm BST. The entire beta schedule can be seen further down the page.

If you want to take part in the Halo Infinite beta weekend, you’ll need to be a member of the Halo Insider program. Fortunately, it’s easy to sign up and become a member.

To get an invite to any upcoming Halo Infinite beta tests, visit the Halo Waypoint website and click the link to sign up.

One other thing worth noting is that you’ll need to opt-in to communications, verify your email address, and then choose console and/or PC.

If you’ve successfully completed the steps to sign up, you’ll need to keep an eye on the Halo Waypoint site and your own private messages to find out if you’re invited.

If you do get an invite and have been sent a code, you can pre-load the Halo Infinite beta test ahead of schedule.

In terms of content, 343 Industries has confirmed that various player-vs-player modes will be available during the weekend, as well as Bot Battles.

This includes the Slayer mode on Bazaar, Live Fire, and Recharge, as well as Capture the Flag and Stronghold game modes.

The second beta weekend will introduce 12-v-12 Big Team Battles to the experience.

Elsewhere, fans will be able to check out the new and improved menu screens, Training Mode, Weapon Drills and even a selection of challenges.
