343 Industries have announced another technical preview for Halo Infinite, this time with a greater focus on arena PvP. Here’s how to register and play in the next Halo Infinite multiplayer preview beta.

Halo Infinite’s first Technical Preview provided players the opportunity to test out the game’s weapons and features ahead of its December 8 launch. This gave the developers some important feedback.

Now that they’ve made a few changes, 343 Industries have prepared another round of beta testing with improved bots, an Academy training mode, and a bigger focus on PvP.

Here’s how to sign up and play Halo Infinite’s second multiplayer preview.

343 Industries announced on September 9 that the second round of Halo Infinite beta testing is set to arrive on September 24.

Players will need to register their Halo Insider profiles before September 13 to be eligible to participate. But, with this round of testing, they expect to have everyone fully registered playing in the multiplayer preview.

Halo Community Director Brian Jarrard added more detail, revealing that “Bots will be back (with some improvements), Academy will return some updates and the addition of “training mode”, and there will be a much bigger focus on Arena PVP this time including a new map and some objective modes. [Big Team Battle] is also on the menu!”

The game will also feature a unique Battle Pass containing various cosmetics to unlock through gameplay or with real money. It will also have a unique feature that lets you access items from all the previous seasonal Battle Passes.

  5. Fill out the questionaire

You must be 18 years or older to participate in the tests. You’ll be asked to not disclose any information from the tests, including any images or videos.

Further, you will be asked to share personal details like your email, country, and time zone. Insider will then ask you about all the Halo games you have played, which ones are your favorite, and what kind of modes do you prefer.

The sign-up also requires you to state what platforms and controllers you own, what display settings you have, and what the audio setup is like. You can also opt into PC-specific beta tests on the Halo Insider sign-up page, and you’ll be asked to share your PC specifications and your Steam ID if you have one.

Lastly, once you are all signed up, all you need to do is wait until you are called upon for a test. Microsoft have stated that these invitations are limited since they will choose participants based on “specific goals.”

As of September 20, a few players have reported receiving invitations as part of an invitation wave for Halo Insider members. You will be told about your acceptance into the flight by either email or through a message on Halo Waypoint.
