Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries will finally begin a public test of its highly anticipated network campaign co-op mode in July, the developer announced on Thursday †through polygon† The studio also plans to test the ability to replay campaign missions, which wasn’t in the game at launch.
The beta for both features is set to take place from July 11 to July 22, according to a press email sent to The edge† If you own the campaign portion of Halo Infinite or an active Xbox Game Pass member, you can participate by signing up as a Halo Insider† On Xbox you also have the Xbox Insider App†
If you’ve already played Halo Infinite’s campaign, everything you have achieved will not be transferred. For this test, download a new campaign build and start the game from scratch. Any progress you make as a group will carry over to solo play, but test progress will not carry over to the retail game when the updates are officially released. Crossplay is fully supported though, so you can play with friends on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Up to four players can team up in a party.
We don’t know exactly when campaign co-op and mission replay will be publicly available, but in a roadmap released in April, 343 Industries said it is targeting a “late August” launch for the features. According to that roadmap, an open beta of the Forge mode is scheduled for September.
