The Halo Infinite technical preview is beginning, with many of the players who registered for testing access trialing a new gameplay build ahead of Halo Infinite’s launch. As this is a technical test, we’re tracking known problems players encounter. 343 Industries has also helped in this endeavor, giving a pre-launch list of issues and bugs players might run into in their time with these pre-release builds of the game.
If you run into any problems while playing, be sure to submit a support ticket directly to 343 Industries, as feedback is necessary for this to be one of the best Xbox games available.
What are the top bugs and issues in Halo Infinite multiplayer beta?
343 Industries has explicitly stated that the reason these “flights” are referred to as a technical preview is that they are meant to stress all the different systems in the game. More specifically, 343 Industries is seeking to understand where server strain is the worse, what bugs need to be prioritized for fixing above others and so on. The goal is that by discovering and hammering these issues right now, they won’t be in the full game.
If you haven’t been selected yet, don’t despair, as there will be many tests and there are plenty of weapons in Halo Infinite to test out, so keep an eye on your email inbox.
