The long-awaited network campaign co-op feature will finally begin a public test in July, according to a Thursday announcement from Halo Infinite creator 343 Industries (via Polygon). The option to repeat campaign missions, which wasn’t there when the game launched, is another feature that the team plans to test.
According to a press email given to The Verge, the features’ beta testing is scheduled to run from July 11 through July 22. By becoming a Halo Insider, you may take part if you have Halo Infinite’s campaign mode or an active Xbox Game Pass membership. You also need the Xbox Insider software on Xbox.
Anything you’ve achieved in the campaign of Halo Infinite won’t carry over if you’ve previously completed it. You will be downloading a fresh campaign build and starting the game from scratch for this test. Any group progress you achieve will move over to solo play, but when the changes are officially launched, progress made during the test won’t carry over to the retail game. However, crossplay is completely enabled, allowing you to play with friends on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X or S. A party of up to four players will be permitted.
Although 343 Industries stated that it is aiming for a “late August” debut for the features in a roadmap published in April, we are unsure of the actual release date for campaign co-op and mission replay. According to that plan, an open beta for Forge mode is scheduled for September.
