Halo Infinite Is Getting Two Multiplayer Beta Tests in These Two Weekends with the first one starting this Friday.

Halo Infinite Betas will only be available for an hour each day. The 343 industry said: "Matchmaking will only be up for a set amount of time each day to help us test our servers against the highest concurrency possible, and while this does mean shorter time for players to go hands on, it's critical to our primary goal of ensuring that our online services are ready for launch." This beta will only be open to Halo Insiders who register before September 13.

Weekend One

The first weekend of the Halo Infinite Beta Test will take place at select times from Thursday evening, September 23 to Sunday, September 26. During the first weekend we'll be playing 4v4 Arena Mode, the build available for download, Training Mode and Weapon Drill are available.

However, Players will only have access to multiplayers from 10 a.m. PST to 2 p.m. PST and 5 p.m. PST to 9 p.m. PST on Friday, September 24 to Sunday, September 26, and then on September 27, Flight access closes until Weekend 2.

Weekend Two

The second test of Halo Infinite takes place at select times from Thursday evening, September 30 to Sunday, October 3. During the second weekend of the Halo test we'll be playing 12v12 BTB ( Big Team Battle ), and Arena. The same as above in this test has Training Mode and Weapon Drill.

Players will only have access to the Second Test for matchmaking from 10 a.m. PST to 2 p.m. PST and 5 p.m. PST to 9 p.m. PST on Friday, October 1 to Sunday, October 3. After the 9 p.m. on Sunday, surveys go out to a portion of Halo Insiders, and then on Wednesday, October 6 at 10 a.m., the Halo Support site closes.

After both weekends, when matchmaking is offline you can also access Halo Infinite's training mode, weapon drills, battle pass, and customization options.
