Halo Infinite schedules two more weekends of tech tests
Halo Infinite has scheduled two more weekends of technical tests that will actually feature PvP multiplayer.
Developer 343 Industries announced in a lengthy blog post that matchmaking will be available for the 4v4 Arena mode from Friday, September 24th to Monday, September 27th. The weekend after—Friday, October 1st to Sunday, October 3rd—will have test servers for Arena and Big Team Battle.
Ahead of the next round of tech tests, 343 is hosting a livestream on September 22nd that will “provide a closer first look at Big Team Battle gameplay.” The next tech tests will also include all of the content from the previous one, including Training Mode, Weapon Drills, and Bot Arena.
The rest of the blog post details some of the changes coming to Big Team Battle in Halo Infinite, including the fact that matches will be 12v12. For context, older BTB modes were only 8v8 matches. Capture the Flag and Team Deathmatch will return, as well as a new mode called Total Control.
The blog post also details some of the daily and weekly challenges that players can expect from the game’s battle pass. Those include “Gaptacular (Knock an Enemy Spartan off the map with the Repulsor in PvP),” “Grapple-jack (Grapple to and Hijack Enemy Vehicles in PvP),” and more.
Halo Infinite launches December 8th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
