Final Halo Reach PC Flight With Campaign Missions, Matchmaking and Firefight Inbound; Will Include Crossplay Between Steam & Windows Store Versions
Developer 343 Industries has announced that the final Halo Reach PC flight will be arriving shortly.
The final flight could go live early next week but this depends on whether the team will be able to tackle some blocking issues preventing from going to Insider Ring 3.
Once live, this final Halo Reach PC test focuses on testing matchmaking on both the Windows Store and Steam versions. According to 343 Industries, crossplay between both versions will be supported and this new build will include two campaign missions, several matchmaking options, and two Firefight matchmaking offerings.
