Bungie has announced that the heavily anticipated Beta for Halo: Reach will run for 17 days, starting on May 3 and ending on May 19. Thatâ€™s two good weeks of pwning noobs from the sky, assassinating unaware opponents, and, why of course, teabag parties in Bungieâ€™s latest multiplayer concoction.
All throughout the Beta, Bungie will make new playlists available. Below, you can peruse the current schedule of events:
- Grab Bag - May 3
- Free For All - May 3
- Arena - May 3
- Invasion - May 7
- Network Test 1 - May 14
Anyone who partakes in the Beta and plays at least one full game of any type will receive a Halo: Reach Avatar hoodie via Halo Waypoint. Silver members might also want to mark their calendars for the “Halo Multiplayer Unlock Weekend” which will make online multiplayer for the Beta, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 3 free for all Xbox Live members between May 14 and May 17.
Want to make the most of the Beta? Call in sick, re-direct your girlfriendâ€™s phone calls, stock up on supplies (donâ€™t forget about empty plastic bottles for you know what!), hang that â€śPlease donâ€™t disturbâ€ť sign â€“ just to make sure your loved ones will get the message â€“ and, finally, lock that door like you mean it! Voila, all set.
