Halo Reach Beta (Xbox 360): Launch Release Time Recap

As most of you are aware, the public multiplayer beta for Halo Reach on the Xbox 360 kicks off today. We have a recap of the estimated time that the beta will be available to download – according to Major Nelson.

As reported from TheHDRoom, you’ll need the Halo 3: ODST disc if you want to take part in the beta, unless you have obtained a code elsewhere. Full details on how to obtain your code via ODST can be seen in our previous article here.

According to Major Nelson’s latest tweet, the beta is expect to go live during the early evening in the GMT timezone, while those of you in ET or PT will get it late afternoon or early afternoon respectively.

With this in mind, you should check for the beta at around 1pm EST or 10am PST. Let us know once you see it available. Have fun guys!
