It’s finally here…at least for the public it is. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to get into the Friends & Family start of the Halo 3 Beta this past weekend, then your chance has come. That is, ofcourse, if you have a copy of Realtime Worlds’ Crackdown. Halo 3 fans who have a copy of Crackdown will be invited to play the Halo 3 Beta in a few short hours. What was once a few thousand players will increase a hundred fold I’m sure. This will make for some very good competition as well as give Bungie some much needed feedback on Halo 3.
I’ve included a small Q&A for some based on questions I’ve seen pop up recently. Are U Ready? It’s about to be Betalicious! I’ll have more on this in the next episode of Unscripted 360.
Do I have to have the game to play?
Yes. The Halo 3 Beta can only be accessed with the game inside your console not with a code. There is no redeem code for Crackdown.
How long can I play the beta?
You can play all night if you’d like or until the beta period ends. Go all out, all night.
Can I rent Crackdown and still play the beta?
Yes. If your local video store has a copy of Crackdown with the Halo 3 Beta marking, then you can play.
