Halo Infinite’s multiplayer technical preview is about to get started. Spanning two full weekends, Halo Insiders will get to play on new maps, in new modes, and try experiences that are brand-new to the Halo franchise.
Another feature added to the list of "eventually"
Where did you see that?

Where in the article does it mention this?
Lol I wasn't feeling the Halo Infinite multi-player beta. But I'm still going to get the game after I see the reviews. 6 years for this? The good news is that I am more interested in the campaign https://youtu.be/jWVeewFZlG...
Well done. How long did it take you to find the lowest quality stream to link too?
@Christ12 I don't know what you are talking about🤔 I just typed Halo multiplayer beta, and this came up. You can also change the video quality if you're signed up with YouTube. I wasn't concerned with the quality though
Why wait for reviews when you could've just played the tech preview yourself and form your own opinion of the MP. 🤔 and what exactly arent you liking from the MP?
I'm more interested in the campaign. You can't play some of the campaign from the tech preview. I'm hoping that they release a campaign demo before it launches. Being in development for 6 years, the mp doesn't look that innovative at all, not to mention it doesn't look like a series X game, but it doesn't look that bad either. It makes me think that the Xbox One is holding it back from its true potential. I don't think it should have taken them 6 years to make this imo.
I know at least the first few of those 6yrs went into engine development. I'm not a developer so I can't really comment on how long any particular element of the dev process should take, though. We don't even really know when they started working on multiplayer in earnest.
It's a tech preview of the basic Playlist we all know and love. There new gametypes with the innovative stuff is being saved for released. BTB supposedly is doing something innovative that will be in the next flight. With a new engine and Covid it shouldn't be that hard too see. After all we've had so many basic SP only games delayed. Shouldnt be hard to imagine something as big as Halo taking 6 years.
I don’t get the hate on them releasing some of the game when it’s ready as to delaying the whole game. Then again there’s a lot of miserable people out there that are going to Bitch no matter what
So they are finally going to copy paste enemy AI code into MP bots seen since OG Xbox Halo 1? https://thumbs.gfycat.com/Q...
Why eventually? It's a behavior i've seen in NPCs since the ps2/xbox, hell Halo 1 bots did this
Halo 1 didn't have bots
The entire campaign? You are literally fighting bots in every game with pve. Just because you can drop them in a PvP map does not make them different.
There were no multiplayer bots. You are purposely twisting words. Environment Enemy AI does not act like bots. Bots in Infinite can work toward objectives like capture the flag or strongholds...environment enemy AI holds or guards particular areas and are usually in defensive positions to challenge the User. In Halo Infinite bots will actively seek out human opponents to kill, they will hold positions, and they will engage in objectives. It is not the same.
They clearly don't play Halo and have no clue wtf they're talking about, just ignore them
It's a new breed of bot. Iirc they're using machine learning to make their behavior more human-like and adaptable. The negative to employing new methods like this means certain features than were standard using the old system have to be redeveloped. We saw similar stuff in the graphics department when devs were making the switch to HD and some features had to be cut in the process.
One more missing feature for the pile.
Doesn't say that anywhere in article, you're just hating for the sake of hating. Sad!

I’ve been playing the tech test and this is the most fun I’ve had since Halo 3. Can’t wait for release!
It does look like halo 3.
You missed your '/s' Or else change your monitor/smartphone you use to watch YT vids. Even though Halo Infinite is nothing ground breaking to look at ... It definitely doesn't look like Halo 3. That's like saying Uncharted 4 looks like Uncharted 3.
I haven't really bern into Halo since Halo 3. Tried 4 and 5 and those versions never got me hooked. I started the flight preview this werkend and had a lot of fun. Same. I haven't had this much fun with Halo since the third one. Big Team Battle next weekend!
Can’t wait for BTB! I’m sure it will be tons of fun. I was actually surprised how well it looks and plays. Gameplay is solid and smooth as butter.
Shrug, I’m not playing this game to play against bots really. Tech test has been super fun thus far - I’d say the second most fun I’ve had with a game this year (Psychonauts being #1). Looking forward to the release.
I can't wait for it to be out!
Just hurry up and release! The tech preview been a blast. I thought the repulser was gonna be trash but it's been probably the most fun equipment ability. Although swinging around like Spiderman with the grappleshot is a whole vibe lol.
Honestly this beta craps on anything I've played from MS/Sony this gen. Loving it
Weird flex but okay
Got into beta and played it for all of 20 minutes. Spent first 2 hours trying to connect to a match after it downloaded (I cleaned my room and made breakfast during this time). Played 2 matches spanning about 10-15 min each. Graphics look like Xbox One (even while maxed out on RTX 3080 Super on a 3440x1440p 34 inch wide screen) Game feels like Halo. Couldn't tell you what is really new so far given it just feels like the same old thing stuck in an era long gone. For those who want that same old experience, great for everyone else - this game's multiplayer will surely be over shadowed by BF2042 for sure and just about any other game in the last few years.
Lol stop the lies. 2 hours to get into a match rofl. I didn't even spend 2 minutes.
Yeah because your experience is universal for every single player? Lmao Sad!
On series X, from the point I hit the A button on the beta tile till the point of starting a MP game: 1min 35 seconds
Exactly FoxHole, this dude buggin
“Lol stop the lies. 2 hours to get into a match rofl. I didn't even spend 2 minutes.” Agreed. I’ve played countless matches and not had a single issue. Surprisingly this tech test has been very good for me. Had tons of fun. Can’t wait for BTB next week!
Graphics don't look anything like Xbox One. The leap from Halo 5 to Infinite is very large. Everything is significantly more detailed.
Were you playing in the right play hours?
It's easily the best playing Halo of them all.
343i nailed the gameplay this time around. Definitely one of the best playing Halo titles to date. The tech test was great.
