Fans of Halo will be pleased to hear that Bungie has announced on its website that it will release the Halo 3 multiplayer beta on May 16 at 12:00 am PST. The beta will run until June 6 11:59 pm PST.

Bungie noted that, while this version of Halo 3 will “look somewhat close to the final game,” it is a beta game that will contain “quirks” and “rough edges.” However, the developer believes that the multiplayer beta will provide N “exciting taste of what’s to come in Fall.”

The game will include three maps (Valhalla, High Ground and Snowbound), which are promised to look better than in initial screenshots and which will be playable in Matchmaking only. There are new weapons such as a new grenade type that is described to be a “completely different class of weapon.” Bungie also mentioned that gamers will be able to try new vehicles and gameplay features. One section allows users to meet the multiplayer developer team and watch a level get built from concept to completion.

The beta will available through Xbox Live Gold accounts for users who purchased specially marked copies of Crackdown, or won a spot in the beta through the “Rule of Three” or other regional promotions.

This is where it gets weird, i tried pvs approach to VPN but it took too long (rewriting config etc.) so i tried hamachi. As far as doing what its supposed to, it works - very easy to start up (no configuration) but it froze my pc up within 5 minutes of booting regardless whether the program was open or not forcing me to restart using the button not a soft reboot!!!

This occured 5 times in a row with it installed, stopping anything i was doin at the time.

I cant find any other occurances of this happening Any ideas why this happening? My mates have it and have no problems

Could do with a solution by tonight - supposed to be playing my buds on tiberium wars :(

Well one of my mates just got the latest update (mine came with it) and now his froze up a couple of times. And its a non recoverable freeze too as in everything just stops.

Anybody know an alternative program that does the same thing just as easy?
