After finishing the first test on Xbox One regarding the version of Halo: Reach which will come included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection , in Community Update yesterday Unyshek and Postums have informed us that the next wave of PC tests is coming. In this article we will see what the contents of the build that players, part of the Halo Insider Program , specifically those that will be called upon to play it, can expect once the latter has been downloaded.

Before starting, 343 Industries We would like to specify that the current build has passed Ring 0. During this week, both internal developers and people in close contact with 343, we moved on to the Ring 1 and Ring 2 phases and, if everything goes according to plan, next week we could already pass at Ring 3 , which is the actual test phase that involves us players.

THE 3 OBJECTIVES OF THE TEST

In this wave of tests the developers have 3 goals to reach, including:

  • Matchmaking: the main objective is to test the matchmaking both for the Steam version and for the Windows Store version.
  • Cross-Play Steam & Windows Store: this build will include the cross-play between the Steam & Windows Store versions regarding matchmaking
  • Season 1: the system of progressions to Seasons already presented in recent months will be present. The team worked on the system to solve several bugs in the last build.

We remind you that you are invited to share your feedback regarding every single detail of the version you are going to play, as your help will allow developers to create a better game for you. The best way to report bugs is via the Halo Support Site which you can only access during the test phase
