How to Download Halo Infinite Multiplayer Tech Preview

The second Tech preview of Halo Infinite is now available for download and we have the complete instructions for you. 343 Industries recently released their minimum and recommended system requirements for the game, indicating that Halo Infinite would be demanding better gaming rigs than its predecessors.

The first beta was launched in July and was a success for its 3-day duration. However, the game was facing a few bugs and issues which the developers took notice of. Now with some improvements, the second Tech Preview is live and ready to play. Hopefully, this second test goes smoothly as any major issues could result in the game getting postponed.
