By B is for Bravo -
The Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta is nearly here, and we’ve been running our final stress tests within the studio to make sure that everything is ready for our December 29 debut. Over the next few days, you may see some of your favorite Twitch streamers or pro players assisting us with these pre-beta playtests, which will include limited beta content. To check out the streams, visit Halo 5: Guardians on Twitch: http://aka.ms/H5Streams and be sure follow the game (this will pin the game to your Twitch home page on Xbox One).
To give you a sneak peek at what’s to come, we’ve teamed up with the top two teams in the Halo Championship Series – Counter Logic Gaming and Evil Geniuses. We’ll be using an early implementation of Halo 5: Guardian’s multiplayer spectator mode to feature these veteran Halo players on-stream from Twitch’s HQ today at 3PM PT.
This pre-launch testing phase is typical for betas as we want to ensure the best possible experience for our fans when the beta officially launches on Dec. 29. The stress test period will be focused on testing and debugging the beta and will feature limited content, whereas owners of “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” will get full access to the 3-week beta, including all of the maps, weapons and game modes.
Until then, here are new screenshots to whet your appetite.
