Halo Infinite is coming soon, and with it we'll see the culmination of years of effort from the devs at 343 Industries. The Halo Infinite Flight Test carried out in July was a great way to gain feedback for the devs of Halo Infinite, and we're looking forward to all the changes that'll take place thanks to the user feedback on the Halo Infinite Flight.
So then, when is the Halo Infinite Flight Test 2, and how do you sign up?
When is the Halo Infinite public play test 2?
Thanks to the latest update from 343 Industries, we'll be seeing the Halo Infinite public play test very soon indeed.
Halo Infinite's tech preview flight 2 will be on September 23-26.
There's also a flight 3 happening on September 30-October 3.
That means we're getting back-to-back weekends of Halo Infinite flight tests, and this time around, it'll be player-vs-player.
We'll be seeing Big Team Battle and 4v4 Slayer modes, which we'll hopefully be able to jump into with friends. Who knows, maybe we'll even have some more Halo Infinite guns revealed.
In the first weekend of the two, 4v4 Arena will be the focus, and in the second we'll have the massive 12v12 Big Team Battle to contend with.
All the content from the original Halo Infinite flight will still be present too, so if you fancy trying your hand against bots or heading down to the firing range, go ahead.
Keep your eye out for a Twitch stream on Wednesday too - we'll likely see a lot more information on what's to come in the flight.

How To Sign Up For The Halo Infinite Flight Test
Fans that are pumped for the Halo Infinite multiplayer will be happy to know that they can sign up for a beta to try it out soon, which 343 Studios is dubbing as the Halo Infinite Flight Test.
Thankfully, the process for signing up isn’t hard at all but ensuring that you get a spot for the Halo Infinite Flight Test is a bit harder as we get into the details.
Players that want to take part in the Halo Infinite Flight Test will have to sign up for the Halo Insider Program, which they can do on the Halo Waypoint website.
After picking ‘Sign Up’ the player will have to detail their country, age, Xbox Live account, and all the other personal information you expect from these things.
Once you’re done and have made your Halo Insider Program account, you’ll simply have to wait for 343 Studios to choose you as a beta tester for the Halo: Infinite Flight Test.
You can file your bugs past the end of the Flight at the end of Flight 2 as well, meaning you don't need to waste your Flight time giving feedback - you can do it after!
Halo Infinite's release date is December 8th 2021, so keep an eye on all our Halo guides up until then and beyond.
