New Halo 3 Beta Under Way?

New Halo 3 Beta Under Way?

Published On August 13, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

Rumours are abound that a new Halo 3 beta test is currently under way. It comes after multiple Xbox Live users noted others playing “Halo 3 Epsilon”.

This was later apparently confirmed after someone supposedly in the test sent an Email to Xbox-Scene which states:
Congratulations on being selected to participate in the Halo 3 Epsilon! The Epsilon is now available for download on Marketplace! First, unlike the Alpha, Beta or Delta, this is a very special test in that not only will you be testing nearly final Halo 3 Matchmaking, you will also be able to:

  • Play Multiplayer on six maps: Snowbound, High Ground, Valhalla, Last Resort, Epitaph and our new big map, Sandtrap.
  • Play Custom Games and test out full game variant editing.
  • Play with the Forge and be able to cooperatively edit and save multiplayer map variants.
  • Play up to 4 person co-op on a single Campaign level.
  • Play and test the full Saved Film functionality, including screenshots you can view in-game for Campaign, Multiplayer and Forge.

Neither Bungie or Microsoft have commented yet on the rumours.
