Campaign co-op is coming to Halo Infinite soon, and the beta test is kicking off early next month.

On Thursday, 343 Industries announced that the network campaign co-op beta for Halo Infinite begins on July 11, 2022. We’ve known this was coming for a while, but some concrete details are now available. First, you must own Halo Infinite on either Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC and be part of the insider program. Sign-up for that here, and do so before the July 5, 2022 cut-off date for this test specifically.

Halo Infinite‘s campaign co-op beta supports up to four players regardless of platform. Meaning you could use the Steam version while three friends are on Xbox Series X|S. Lord, imagine having that feature around in the Halo 2 days.

Any progress in the beta will not carry over to Halo Infinite‘s retail build. No word on when the mode will release publicly yet, but with testing starting, it can’t be too far off. Shame that fans still need to wait, though, given Halo Infinite came out almost eight months ago. However, 343 Industries insists campaign co-op needed that extra development time.

“One of the greatest creative challenges has been in how we support this new, more open experience and the many new questions that raised,” John Mulkey, lead world design, said via Halo Waypoint. “How do we set up a shared world state? How do we keep the Fireteam together? How do we determine intent and mission focus? How do we prevent sequence breaking the narrative?”

It’s been an uphill climb for 343 Industries ever since Halo Infinite‘s launch. While initial impressions were fairly positive, post-launch support has soured many players. Season 2 addressed several key complaints, but many issues persist.
