Whether on Xbox or PC, you can now download and start playing the Season 1 beta of the game right now. Titled Heroes of Reach (or Heroes of Reach for free), the first season will import all of your beta progress into the final game, so you can enjoy it all without fear!
This includes all of your Battle Pass progress, Spartan customizations and in-store purchases, so you’ll have plenty of time to progress as Season 1 will only end in May 2022.
