Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach is getting a PC beta in June

The Windows-exclusive PC port is nearly ready to play and will arrive in beta sometime in June.

The iconic Bungie first-person shooter, Halo: Reach, is making its way to Windows PC this year, courtesy of 343 Industries and Splash Damage. Originally due to roll out in May, the beta version will now be reaching testers sometime this June.

343 Industries made the announcement while livestreaming gameplay from the beta build, showing off the port's high resolution and frame-rate when compared to the original Xbox 360 release.

Most notably from the gameplay stream, it seems as though 343 has taken on-board criticism from The Master Chief Collection's online matchmaking system, opting for "Title Update" settings in the Reach port to improve the multiplayer experience.

Players who signed up to the Halo Insider programme will be able to try out the new features when the beta rolls out next month. Alternatively, if you're attending E3, a demo will be available to play at Microsoft's booth.

Xbox One X players will be able to experience the smooth 4K resolution and 60 fps when the game is added to The Master Chief Collection later this year.

Halo: Reach has yet to receive an official release date but stay tuned to the Xbox E3 conference on June 9th at 6pm BST / 7pm CET for more news and gameplay details.

"The time has come for Bungie's farewell to the Halo series, and they bid farewell with the biggest and most epic chapter in the series to date."
