Yes, Halo 4's flight has indeed taken off, bringing tons of new features to the hands of Halo Insiders. The main goal of this flight is to validate Halo 4 on PC, the additional Halo 4 content coming to both platforms, and new features such as crossplay and Advanced Graphics Options. Collaborating with Halo Insiders give us a better understanding of where the game stands based on player feedback and help us determine how much more work we need to do before releasing to the public. To that end, if you're in the flight and spot something strange that isn't in the Known Issues list, please be sure to let us know on aka.ms/HaloSupportInsider.

If you're not a Halo Insider, you can catch Andy and myself do a walkthrough of the flight tomorrow at 2pm PT live on Twitch and YouTube. Or, if you'd just like to see an outline of the flight content here in writing, I've got you covered:
