What We Know About Halo Infinite Technical Preview
This weekend will be the first time ever that the public will be able to get their hands on Halo Infinite, and while there are more details to come ahead of the test, 343 Industries did give us a bit of information as to what players can expect.
This technical preview is intentionally focused on these specific areas to help us gather some scale data as we bring these new experiences to Halo for the first time. As we look further ahead, we plan for future flights to expand into more content including traditional PVP Arena and Big Team Battle.
With this and our higher-level feedback goals noted up above, we land on the following specific focal points. With this in mind, the focus areas for our technical preview are:
- Arena gameplay vs. Bots
- Arena Maps
- Academy’s Weapon Drills
- Menu & Battle Pass UI
- New Waypoint experiences on web, iOS, and Android
To gather specific feedback on these areas, our first flight will contain the following content and experiences.
That’s all we know for now, and as mentioned, we will be getting a deeper dive during tomorrow’s stream. We’ll be sure to have a round-up of information, so keep an eye out for that!
Any of you lucky enough to get an invite?
