Bungie has confirmed that the full versions of "Destiny 2" will be officially released on September 6 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. This can be played with two friends you bring or via matchmaking. Destiny veterans expecting large amounts of content in this beta, however, will be left disappointed.
The Destiny 2 beta begins at 10am PDT and is expected to close about the same time on July 23rd.
After getting a chance to play the beta, here's a rundown of what you'll need to know about it. You get to choose the character's class and subclass.
PC: PC Beta is coming in August at an unspecified date. Here's a list of content we can expect in the Destiny 2 beta. Bungie is looking to change this in Destiny 2, as one redditor has pointed out.
Clan Support: It's true that Clans will be supported in Destiny 2, but those features are not a part of this test. You must complete the game's first mission before you can try its multiplayer mode. Betas do often carry on for a day or two longer than they're supposed to though, which is exactly what happened with the one for the first Destiny. Countdown is played on the Midtown map.
Gunslinger Hunter, Striker Titan and Voidwalker Warlock are updated subclasses from the original game. It forces gamers to seize control over areas across the map.
What kind of progression is there? It's a heart-pounding, intense moment that makes me wonder what else Destiny 2 has in store. There will only be 20 weapons and 45 pieces or armor available to players, only four emotes, and no leveling up.
Despite this, players will still be able to try to sub-classes per class.
As soon as the beta for the new game went live, Bungie released a new patch update. Those who participate in the beta will however get a special emblem they can use in the final release.
Taking all of this into account, with Destiny 2's open beta on PS4 being one of the most highly anticipated gaming events of the year, it's understandable that the trial is encountering hang-ups, especially with so many people flooding the servers.
