343 Industries has announced that Halo Infinite is due to have not one, but two technical multiplayer previews this September. 

Taking place over this weekend, September 23rd to 26th, and next weekend, September 30th to October 3rd, these technical previews will give us a taste of Halo Infinite’s player vs player multiplayer, however, matchmaking is limited during these previews.

In the first of the pair of previews, players within the Halo Insider program will be able to test out 4v4 Arena battles against other players, while also enjoying Training Mode, Weapon Drills, and Halo Infinite’s customisation options. 

In September’s second technical preview, Halo Insiders will be able to enjoy 12v12 Big Team Battles, as well as the 4v4 Arena mode alongside the training mode and weapons drills which will be available throughout the technical preview. 

Rather than giving us unfettered access to the multiplayer throughout this weekend, the matchmaking will be limited to certain times in the day across each day. The times matchmaking will be available are as follows. All of the times listed are in BST.
