Halo: Reach’s beta starts May 3rd, but not all game modes will be available right form the start.
Starting day one, players will have access to 4 vs. 4 Team Slayer, Free-for-All, and Grab Bag. Starting May 7th, players can check out the new Invasion mode. And on May 14th, Generator Defense goes live. All of these modes will remain available until May 19th which is the cut off date for the beta.
Anyone who completes a full match during the Halo: Reach beta will get themselves a fancy Halo: Reach avatar hoodie.
If you can’t wait, there is now a video walk through available via Halo 3: ODST discs that gives you tips on maps and a rundown of each game mode.
