The Halo Infinite Multiplayer Tech Preview was a phase in the development of Halo Infinite, produced by 343 Industries and organized by Microsoft. The Tech Preview was designed with the goal of stress testing Infinite's technical systems.

Previews[edit]

Version 199229.21.07.20.0001.flt002int[edit]

Signing into the Halo Insider Program gave players access to the Tech Preview[1], which was made available on July 29, 2021 and it ended on August 1, 2021. A live stream of the Tech Preview was shown on July 28, 2021.[2]

The focus of this technical preview was Infinite's 4v4 (players versus bots) multiplayer matches, Academy's Weapon Drills, and UI tests on Infinite's Battle Pass, Challenges, menu, and Spartan customization. Concurrent with this tech preview, a new version of Halo Waypoint was tested on PC, Android, and iOS.[1] Customisation options available was a small selection of those available in Season 00: For Our Tomorrow's battle pass. Player versus player modes were also briefly tested on the night of the flight's conclusion.

Included features[edit]

The tech preview featured three maps, two game modes, twelve weapons and four armor permutations.[1]

Game modes

  • Slayer
    • Bot Slayer (4 Player vs 4 Bots)
    • Arena Slayer (4 Player vs 4 Player)

List of permutations[edit]

During the Halo Infinite Tech Preview, the player could unlock armor permutations for their Spartan. The tech preview granted players a set amount of in-game credits (cR). Players were free to use their cR how they see fit, but customization items unlocked during technical previews will not carry over when Halo Infinite is released.[1]

Second Tech Preview[edit]

Players who were part of the first Tech preview and those who sign into the Halo Insider Program before September 13, 2021 will have access to the Tech Preview, which will be made available between September 23-September 26, and September 30-October 3. A live stream of the Tech Preview was shown on September 22, 2021.

The focus of this technical preview will be Infinite's new 12v12 Big Team Battle mode and The Academy's Training Mode, alongside Bot Slayer and Social Arena matches on Objective game modes, Weapon Drills, and updates on UI tests on Infinite's Battle Pass, Challenges, Menu, and Spartan customization. Concurrent with this tech preview, the new version of Halo Waypoint will tested on PC, Android, and iOS.
