The first public Halo CE PC tests are now underway and included are four campaign missions and matchmaking content.
As covered last month, flighting for the first Halo on PC was delayed due to various blocking issues. These issues now appear to be resolved as developer 343 Industries has just kicked off public flighting for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary on PC. Insiders who have signed up for the public flight should check their email for a key.
"We are currently reviewing a new flight build with fixes to all Ring 3 blockers identified from recent Ring 1 and 2 testing", 343 Industries wrote some days ago. "If verified, this will go back out to Rings 1 and 2 later today. If no new blocking issues are found, flighting will take off in the next few days!"
The public flight was announced through Twitter yesterday.
