Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is getting its first PC beta next month, and following the success of Reach we have no doubt that many Spartans are queuing up for a chance at joining the action early. Developer 343 Industries knows that you’re eager, and has released a bit of information on how to improve your chances of getting in. Read on to learn how to join the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary PC beta.
How to join the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary PC beta
We’ll start off with an important caveat: there’s no guaranteed way to get into the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary PC beta yet. All we’re listing below are the steps suggested by 343 Industries employees (forum post here) to give you a chance of getting in. WIth that out of the way, here’s what they suggest:
- Join the Halo Insider Program and have an up to date account.
- Opt in to 343 contacting you.
- Opt in for PC “flighting” (beta tests).
- Upload your latest DXDIAG to your profile.
Obviously 343 is interested in knowing how Halo: Combat Evolved will run on a range of PCs, so uploading your stats will likely encourage them to choose you. There will only be a limited number of people who are given access to the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary PC beta, so don’t feel too put out if you don’t get in.
If you are lucky enough to get access to the PC beta, 343 is looking for feedback on the campaign (both solo and cooperative), multiplayer, customization and progression, so it sounds like there will be plenty to try out.
We’ll let you know if any further details arise, but for now if you want to join the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary PC beta you should sign up and keep that profile up to date! Beyond that, pray to the gods — both Human and Covenant are acceptable — that you’ll be added to the beta next month. Good luck, Spartans!
