The latest Halo: The Master Chief Collection Insider session has received an extension and new features. The Halo 4-focused test began last week, and following today's extension, invited PC and Xbox One Insiders will be able to keep participating in the flight until November 6.
Halo Insiders! We're extending the Halo 4 flight an additional week to end on Nov. 6th at 10AM PT. With the extension, we're adding:
🔀 Halo: Reach Firefight and Multiplayer are now in for Crossplay Testing
🖥️ Halo 4 PC and Xbox Updates
🔥 And more!

The new content comes in the form of Halo: Reach's multiplayer, including both multiplayer and Firefight modes, which Insiders will now download via a build update on all platforms. The intent of this bonus content is to further test the PC and Xbox One cross-play capabilities the studio is introducing with the Halo 4 launch onto the PC version of the Master Chief Collection.
The flight update also applies bug fixes for the current Halo 4 build and improvements to Halo: Reach. The full patch notes are available for Insiders to see on their HaloWaypoint Insider portal.
343 Industries invited every eligible Halo Insider to this flight as it prepares to launch the final game of the collection for PC. However, Insider sessions won't stop here, so those who are interested can still sign up for future flights by heading here. The Halo 4 content being tested in this flight was detailed last week, and can be found here.
