The beta will see gamers battling it out in four-on-four matches, with all players starting with identical loadouts. The beta will include seven maps, three modes, 11 weapons, as well as a few armor sets that you can customize. Halo 5: Guardians beta players will be able to unlock content in the beta, that will roll over to the full game when it is released.

 

Halo 5: Guardians will be running at 60FPS, but no details on which resolution it will be rendered at. Halo 5: Guardians' Executive Producer, Josh Holmes, said: "Having a beta this early this early in development is crucial because it gives us as developers the opportunity to react to the feedback we get from fans and take it into account as we complete the multiplayer experience for Halo 5: Guardians". How do you get access to the beta? Halo: The Master Chief Collection will include it, which will be arriving on November 11 for the Xbox One.
