Halo 5 Beta Test Available Today For Some

343 Industries and Microsoft have released a beta of Halo 5:Guardians starting this morning to XBox One Preview Program Participants. The beta will be available until 11:59pm PST December 21 (or December 22 if you're in the UK). Consider this early access beta for Preview Program members. It will contain week 1 content of the full beta. For those who purchased the Halo: Master Chief Collection, you probably already know about the full beta (which contains a code for people to try out the full beta December 29).

Halo 5 is a continuation of the Halo franchise, minus Master Chief. Supposedly. Halo 3 was suppose to be the last of it, and then they had spin-offs, then Halo 4, and more spin-offs, and it just keeps going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny. Five is listed as a single player and multi-player online game, being touted as a possible MMO. It's hard to say for certain. It is 343 and they do enjoy staying tight-lipped. Given the content presented to us previously, we do know that it is taking place in the Halo Universe, it'll be an XBox One exclusive because a new engine was developed for the game, and there will be online multi-player content.

Whatever the story or the game play may be, there will be a number of gamers keeping busy this weekend and over the New Years holiday.
