Finally, the Halo Infinite’s Campaign Co-op is Now Live and is now open, and you can begin testing it immediately. The lead-up to this has been rather long – after all, the game first went live in December 2021, but most of the players have not been able to engage in co-op gameplay in the months since.
Halo Infinite’s Campaign Co-Op Beta Now Live
Many might argue that the ability to tackle various missions with your friends is one of the cornerstones of the “Halo” Franchise, so it’s happy to see it finally make it to the beta version of the game, to get it implemented in the real deal once 343 industries is satisfied with the results. The beta is only here for some time, though and not all of the features are available for the test just yet.
First, announce on the Twitter account Halo, that the beta is life both on PC and Xbox players, and it fully supports crossplay. Meaning if you and your friends are playing on different platforms, it is not an issue and you would still be able to connect. Up to four players can still play through the “Halo Infinite” campaign in its entirety, as the whole game would remain available for testing on the beta servers.
Halo Infinite Features
Unfortunately, your progress on the beta would not carry over to the live version of “Halo Infinite.” On the other hand, all forward progress would be saved within the beta, so you should be able to start your gameplay with or without your entire team. The same goes for collectibles.
The mission replay also would be arriving with the beta, bringing with it the much-needed features that allow you to go back to your previously completed missions and replay them, be it for fun or for skull hunting. However, three expected features at the moment are not yet ready to test yet: Multiplayer, Academy, and customization.
How to Join the Co-op Beta for Halo Infinite
Taking part in the beta is fairly simple, but if you did not sign up for it previously, you might not get an invitation. The “Halo Infinite” beta would remain available to players that already own the retail version of the campaign. Also, this includes the players with an Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
In order for you to try the co-op, you would also be required to have an active Xbox live gold subscription, but if you already have the Xbox Game Pass ultimate, be rest assured that Live Gold is bundled with it. This round of beta testing is expected to conclude on August 1 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
If you are interested in trying out the beta on Xbox, you can choose to download the Xbox insider hub app. You would find it under previews on the left-hand side menu. Have it at the back of your mind that first, you would have to sign in with the gamer tag that you initially used to sign up for the “Halo” Insider program, which was required to join the beta. The “Halo” team detailed the whole process of installation on an Xbox on its website, so be sure to check it out if you are running into any problems.
Halo Insider Program
Players that want to play through steam would only be able to try out the beta if they were able to sign up for the “Halo” Insider program on time. right before you would be able to jump in, you would have to get the game key for the beta on the “Halo” Insider Active flights website.
If you cannot find your beta key there, it basically means that you have not received it, and as per the official steam installation instructions, “Halo” Support would not be giving out keys at this time.
