343 has been testing the latest content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection internally, but to ensure a proper rollout it is getting the public involved.

Select players who have opted into the Xbox One Preview program who own and play The Master Chief Collection regularly should see a prompt to download the beta update for the game on January 23. The update will include changes to the matchmaking experience and party system and is apparently quite extensive.

Our Take
A beta for a free content update is certainly unusual, but after The Master Chief Collection's rough launch, I understand why 343 Industries' is taking every precaution.
