Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Coming This December

Get ready, Halo fans: The multiplayer beta for the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians is hitting Xbox One consoles this December, just in time for the holidays.

Microsoft made the announcement Monday at E3 while unveiling The Master Chief Collection, an upcoming re-release of all major Halo titles for the Xbox One. The Master Chief Collection hits in November, and people who buy it will have access to the Guardians beta in December — along with a totally revamped tenth anniversary version of Halo 2, which will include all multiplayer maps from the original sequel to the Xbox’s most famous game.
