One of 343 Industries’ biggest mistakes, last year, was not holding a pre-launch beta testing phase for ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’. The result was that the game had a pretty rocky launch with tons of bugs and a broken matchmaking feature that left many gamers frustrated. But the developers are careful not to repeat the same mistake twice and will now be holding a beta phase for their next big update.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be receiving a massive update sometime soon that looks to fix the many bugs and glitches that have been plaguing the game since its release last year. And to make sure things go smoothly, 343i will be holding a beta phase for the update, allowing a few users to test out the patch before it is released. Members of the Xbox One Preview program who have played the game for a decent amount of time are eligible to be a beta tester.

Not much is known about what this update will contain, except that it will be focused on the games multiplayer feature. The matchmaking and party system will be receiving some changes as these seem to be the buggiest features in the game. The developers have released tons of updates and fixes since the game’s launch, and while this has addressed certain issues, many problems still remained. Hopefully, this massive update will resolve these issues once and for all.

If you want to know more about the update or if you’re thinking about applying as a beta tester, you can head over to this page and check out the FAQ posted by the developers.

Despite the buggy release, Halo: The Master Chief Collection has done fairly well, garnering positive reviews from critics. The game is now available exclusively for the Xbox One.
