Can I play Halo 5 beta at 12:00am Eastern time??

Just wanted to know if I can play the beta at
12:00am eastern standard time?

Or do I have to wait??

Anyone know for sure?

Depends. The Beta is said to come online during that time, however there is supposed to be an update of some type happening to it. Plus, Beta’s usually have a few tech problems when opening up. So expect those…

Tech problems for sure, I guess that’s probably why they haven’t gave us an exact release schedule.

Hope 343 doesn’t mess this up…again

It opens at 9:00AM, meaning you can play at 12:00PM, not AM.

No it’s not. If you guys would bother to read, you’d know when the beta is going online.

There’s a countdown timer on Xbox’s Halo page: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/halo

But they did… They said 12PM EST, or 9AM PST

may I see the official statement? Can you post a link? I’ve been dying to find it as a hard fact but I’ve seen over a dozen speculations

EDIT: never mind

never mind I just found all the solid facts I need. Its definitely tomorrow at 12 eastern time and I have it already downloaded through early access and yes its 100% the same download its 10.27 gigs for the beta and all 7 maps are on it but they will be unlocked on a week to week basis. If you don’t have it downloaded you can now download it through the beta section in game or the halo channel:) your welcome

Eastern time it unlocks at 10:00 Am 100% sure. Trust me im on it im waiting to play myself. Xbox site says 50 mins well 48 but still

Eastern time is 12pm noon, the countdown is incorrect in all time zones except for PST. 9 PST, 10 Mountain time, 11 CST, 12 EST (US).

2 hours left.

12AM EST is when it is “supposed” to start but it is going to be after that for sure. I have been in over 20 betas and it is very rare they ever launch on time. And with the track record of TMCC, I am sure this is going to have problems.

the timer says 4 minutes for me!!! I am praying to like every god right now that it doesn’t have a full blown MCC syndrome…

That isn’t right at all. The beta is not starting in 4 minutes. It still has at least 2 more hours before starting. And that’s still iffy.

the beta is in 48 minutes

I know when it actually starts I just looked at the Halo Infinite: Available now with Xbox Game Pass | Xbox site and it said 4 minutes when I was reading this thread lol.I am pretty sure its around 12pm EST for me XD
