Destiny 2's Open Beta Gets a Trailer Ahead of 18th July Launch

Destiny 2 characters

A PC beta is scheduled for sometime in August. As announced in a Bungie newsletter, you can play through the opening mission and cinematic cutscenes from Destiny 2's campaign, two competitive PVP modes, a cooperative strike, and even the new social space - The Farm.

The Control mode returns in Destiny 2 with a few key changes from the first title.

In addition, Dawnblade Warlock, Arcstrider Hunter, and Sentinel Titan subclasses will be available for players to experiment with and try out. Bungie has stated in the past that online maps have been custom-built for the all-new Countdown, so it'll be interesting to see how players react to those fancy arenas in two weeks' time.

Which, in Open Beta form runs from July 21 through to July 23 on PS4 and Xbox One. Those who don't have two teammates to join up can take advantage of the game's new matchmaking system. For other consoles you will have to wait until July 21st.




Destiny 2's early access beta kicks off for PlayStation 4 pre-order customers on July 18, and then on July 19 for Xbox One users. Interestingly, players who participate in the testing phase will receive a special beta banner, which they will receive once the game officially launches.

Pre-order the game here, and check out the open beta trailer below.

The Destiny 2 Hub or the Social Hub has come out ahead of the beta release and it's a wonderful experience to watch it before the release. The sequel arrives on consoles on September 6 and October 24 on PC.
