If you were fortunate enough to attend E3 last week, then you will have already had the chance to try out Halo Reach running on PC. For the rest of us, we are still waiting on the first Halo Insider tests to go live, which should finally happen next week if all goes according to plan.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this. Halo Reach was initially supposed to get its first public flight before E3 but additional work was required to get the game ready for its first public showing on PC. Now the same has been seen publicly thanks to its appearance on the E3 show floor, making this new date more likely for Halo Insiders.
The Master Chief Collection will be rolling out in parts for PC gamers and will be available on both Steam and through the Xbox Game Pass app for PC. Each game individually will cost $10, so once all of them are out, the full package will be $60.
We will be getting Halo Reach first. The first public flight test will be next week for a “small subsection of registered Halo Insiders” in order to ensure everything is working properly and the team can obtain decent levels of feedback. Then the next test will roll out to a wider audience. A build of the game is currently targeted as a candidate for this first public test but is still going through testing procedures. If it passes, then we’ll be back next week with details on how to download and how long people can play for.
KitGuru Says: We’ll keep our fingers crossed that everything goes well. Have many of you signed up to the Halo Insider program for PC beta testing?
