Owners of the Xbox One-exclusive game Halo: The Master Chief collection can now pre-load the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta test before it officially begins on Monday, December 29.
If you have the game installed on your Xbox One, all you have to do is go to the "Extras" section on the menu and then highlight the Halo 5 MP Test section to download the client. The beta, part of which was made available briefly to Xbox One firmware preview users earlier this month, is scheduled to go live on Monday at noon Eastern time (9 am Pacific).
The beta test for Halo 5: Guardians will feature several maps and game modes, but will concentrate on arena combat in 4v4 player matches. The beta test will last until January 18, 2015.
