The Halo: Reach beta, which runs until May 19, is now live.
Bungie has also released a video hosted by celebrity comedienne Aisha Tyler today to promote the event.
Bungie has said: “The download process may be subject to extended wait times. Server load is expected to be extremely high, especially during the first few hours and days of Beta availability. Please bear with us and stay tuned to Bungie.net for news and information.”
Let us know how you feel about the beta after you have put a couple hours in.
