Microsoft has announced that the Halo: Reach beta will kick off on 3rd May.

It's "on track to be the largest beta programme of its kind on any console" according to the press release.

Halo: Reach is due out this autumn on Xbox 360 and beta access is guaranteed for people who bought Halo 3: ODST.

The announcement came at the platform holder's X10 event in San Francisco, where it's showing off the likes of Alan Wake, Reach and Fable III to journalists from around the world, including us.
