Halo 5 Beta – A Preparation Guide

The early access period of the Halo 5 Beta has ended.
The full public beta doesn’t go live until December 29th.
That’s 7 days.
You have 7 days to wait, but you also have 7 days to prepare yourselves.
That’s what this guide aims to do. I’ll start off by posting all the essential videos I feel are not only helpful, but will build the hype and get you even more excited.

You ready? Let’s go.

That’s a lot of video to digest and it’s only about half of what Greenskull has uploaded recently. So shout-out to him for working so hard to bring us this content!
Make sure you subscribe to the Ready Up Live YouTube channel to check out all the content, new or old!

I’ll leave you with my personal final thoughts about this beta and how my experience has been so far.
As some of you may recall, I got to play this beta quite a few weeks ago at a special press event in NYC. Following that event, SMG and I put up a fairly decent and lengthy write-up, here.
My impressions from that experience have not changed much. The beta has it’s fair share of issues, to be sure…but it’s a beta. Issues are expected and it’s our job, as a community, to provide feedback to 343 Industries. This beta is our chance to make our voices heard and help shape Halo 5: Guardians into the Halo game that we want it to be!

You can do that here on RUL, or on the Halo Waypoint forums.
You can also sign up for the Halo Community Feedback Program!

The final thing I will say about Halo 5 multiplayer as it currently stands is this: It’s fun.
It’s a video game, it’s intense, it’s beautiful, and it’s FUN.

I hope this helped you and I hope you are just as psyched as I am for the 29th.
I’ll see you then, Spartans! 😉
