Halo Infinite tech test times in Australia

We do the timezone conversions so you don't have to.

A new Halo Infinite tech test will take place over the coming weekend and will be open to not just Halo Insiders but all Xbox Insiders as well.

Better yet, Halo Insiders should check their inboxes for a redeemable code for a friend that isn’t in either camp.

Once you’re set up to play, here’s what you can expect and when, all in Australian timings.

Weekend 2 (2-4 October)

The sessions below will focus on Arena multiplayer, with 4v4 and 12v12 Big Team Battle matches. Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time kicks off in the middle of this session!
