Halo: Reach's next PC Insider test will last a week, offering campaign and multiplayer

Halo: Reach Insider tests continue, as 343 Industries today announced the details of the next session, which will bring the tests back over to the PC side following the Xbox One flight from earlier this month. Although specific flighting dates were not revealed today, it was confirmed that this would be the most content rich test yet, featuring campaign levels as well as Firefight and multiplayer matchmaking across a range of maps.

343's internal testing crews will be hammering away at this proposed PC build over this weekend, saying it's aiming to "get this flight out as quickly as possible." We could be looking at Insiders gaining access as early as next weekend if everything goes smoothly, and the tests are anticipated to last an entire week.

Here's a handy rundown 343 provided of all the content that will be available during the course of the next PC Insider flight:

It's unclear how many players will be invited for this session, but considering 50,000 users were sent invites for the previous Halo: Reach Xbox One flight, we could be looking at a massive number of PC users being invited also.
