The first weekend of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer technical preview was exclusive to a select few who signed up through the Halo Insider program ahead of time. The accounts were filled by players who were either on PC through Steam or on Xbox depending on their hardware. Now that the first weekend has concluded, Halo has revealed that the second weekend is available to anyone who has an Xbox without having to sign up for the Insider program.

“Xbox Spartans,” the official Halo account announced on Twitter. “Want to join in on this weekend’s (Oct. 1-3) #HaloInfinite Multiplayer Tech Preview? You can download the build via the Xbox Insider Hub starting right now! Halo Insider or not, you can join in on the action.”
