Halo: Reach's next PC Insider test will last a week, offering campaign and multiplayer
Halo: Reach Insider tests continue, as 343 Industries today announced the details of the next session, which will bring the tests back over to the PC side following the Xbox One flight from earlier this month. Although specific flighting dates were not revealed today, it was confirmed that this would be the most content rich test yet, featuring campaign levels as well as Firefight and multiplayer matchmaking across a range of maps.
343's internal testing crews will be hammering away at this proposed PC build over this weekend, saying it's aiming to "get this flight out as quickly as possible." We could be looking at Insiders gaining access as early as next weekend if everything goes smoothly, and the tests are anticipated to last an entire week.
Here's a handy rundown 343 provided of all the content that will be available during the course of the next PC Insider flight:
Firefight Matchmaking Offerings
- Noble Actual
- Winter Contingency
Multiplayer Matchmaking Offerings
- 4-player Heroic standard Firefight
- 4-player Normal grab bag Firefight
- 2v2 Social: Slayer

- 8v8 Social: Slayer, Flag and Bomb, Zone Control, and Asset Denial
- Halo: Reach Team Hardcore: Slayer and Capture the Flag

The multiplayer and co-op Firefight matchmaking offerings can change as the test progresses according to 343. Those interested in joining the Halo Insider program and helping out with this PC test and ones beyond it can sign up for it through here.
