Destiny 2 Beta Lets You Play Through First Mission, PVP, and More

Destiny 2 beta release date trailer

ACTIVISIONDestiny 2's beta got an explosive new trailer to get Guardians ready for the beta release date

A PC beta is scheduled for sometime in August.

Destiny 2 is the sequel to the internationally acclaimed Destiny, a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation.

Apart from the "Homecoming", the cooperative three-player mode called "The Inverted Spire" will be made available alongside two other multiplayer modes called "Control" and "Countdown". IGN has given all the Destiny 2 fans a chance to glance at the most notable feature of Social Hub. Players will also have access to a new competitive mode known as Countdown, arriving with a custom-built map for the mode.

Destiny 2's social hub, The Farm, will make a brief appearance during the beta starting on Sunday, July 23 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. Most vendors and services will be offline, Bungie said. It keeps on evolving as you proceed further in the game.

The studio, though, promised that Control will arrive at the beta phase with "some impactful changes".

You'll need to pre-order the title to gain access to the closed beta, but Destiny 2 will open its doors to everyone playing on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on July 21.

Moreover, there will be no Clan support or character progression in the Destiny 2 console Beta, meaning your progress won't carry over to the full game. Progress can not be carried over the full game, but all those accessing the beta will still get something for their efforts, an exlusive emblem.

And as this isn't taking place a week before the September 6 release date for Destiny 2 on console, it's an actual large-scale beta test. It is worth noting that the beta phase is only available to those who pre-ordered the game. The PC version will release on October 24th.
