343 Industries announced on Tuesday that it will choose a select few to participate in a back-to-back multiplayer technical preview weekend for Halo Infinite. They will select from among those who signed up for the Halo Insider to get access to all the latest Halo news.

To sign up and get a chance to be selected for this weekend, go to the Halo Waypoint site and click on the front page’s “Become a Halo Insider” tab. This will lead to a short article explaining what the Insider Program consists of and a button to sign up. Note, not everyone that signs up to become a Halo Insider will be chosen for the technical preview.

Once a player has signed up for the Halo Insider Program, they can keep an eye on their email for a notification saying they have been approved. For those who have already become Halo Insiders, check spam and promotional folders since the notification may have been sent there.

Halo Infinite multiplayer preview dates and times

When players receive their mission, the email will inform them when over the course of two weekends the multiplayer technical preview will take place. Since this test is not an open beta like most games and will have limited time to play on various days, the technical preview will be open for all invited players from September 23-26 and September 30 – October 3.
