Hot on the heels of revealing the Halo Channel, 343 Industries offered some early details on the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. Most notably, there's now a date.
The beta will take place from December 29 through January 18, with three game modes in place, along with seven maps and eleven weapons. All players will have the same number of unlocks, ensuring an even playing field. 343 also hints that beta participants may be able to unlock content for the final version of Halo 5 when it arrives in 2015.
Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta access will be granted to anyone that purchases Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Ozzie Mejia posted a new article, Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta begins on December 29.
The multiplayer beta will feature three game modes and last for three weeks.
No Halo 5 footage. That all looks like Halo 2 Annv (midship and headlong) footage. Also, this will get delayed. They aren't going to launch a beta over the holidays.
