Are you an owner of Halo: The Master Chief Collection? Then starting tomorrow you will have access to the Halo 5 multiplayer beta. The beta will run until January 18 and be completely free for any Halo MCC owners. But, you will need to have Xbox Live Gold, because the beta is strictly multiplayer. Everyone is hoping that, even with all the issues with the normal game, the matchmaking in the beta will run smoothly for the next few weeks. It is already available for download through the game’s extras menu or through the Halo Channel. If you enjoy the beta, the full Halo 5 game will be releasing in Fall 2015 and is already available for pre-order at most stores.
Update: For any true Halo fans, apart from the standard game for $60, there will be a Limited Edition available for $100 and a Limited Collector’s Edition available for $250.
Update 2: The beta is now live!
