Anyone who has purchased the Halo: The Master Chief Collection automatically should have access to this beta, with the full game set for launch this fall and exclusive to the next-gen Xbox One console.

This sequel is said to continue the story of Master Chief and introduce Spartan Locke, a brand new addition to the series. Once again you'll be fighting against peace-shattering invader aliens, seeing Spartan Locke on a mission to find the somewhat-elusive Master Chief alongside solving a complicated mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.

According to developer 343 industries, Halo will be around for 30 more years, so here's hoping this latest release is a massive success to help boost the franchise.

You can pre-order this title from the Microsoft Store and read the full announcement on Xbox Wire.
