Tonight, May 11, 2007, Microsoft opens the Halo 3 Beta to the press. At 5pm PST, IGN will have access to the most anticipated beta in gaming history. All through the weekend, IGN will be bringing you hands-on impressions, videos and screens from the beta.
The Halo 3 Beta, which goes live to those registered on May 16, features three multiplayer maps: Valhalla, High Ground and Snowbound. In the public version of the Beta, only matchmaking multiplayer is allowed. But who cares, right, it's a chance to play Halo 3 early!
