Destiny 2 Beta Releasing July 28th 2017 For PS4 and Xbox One

Destiny 2 Open Beta on PS4

However, the latest trailer hypes the upcoming open beta and offers a preview of what's to come.

Check back later on for impressions and other Destiny 2 news and media. You'll have your choice between the Dawnblade, Warlock, Arcstrider Hunter and Sentinel Titan classes. The beta will include the very first mission of the game, called Homecoming, and the Countdown and Control modes, which is basically everything we have seen of the game so far. The Farm will also be open as a limited technical test on Sunday, July 23 from 10 a.m.to 11 a.m., so you'll get the chance to hang out with some other players (and some chickens).

Will you be taking part in the beta? This is simply so that Bungie can stress test how many players the space can hold at once.

Pre-order early access to the beta lands on PS4 on 18 July while Xbox One players can get into it the following day. The game developer also added that it is returning Control "with some impactful changes".

Meanwhile, what is not included in the beta are clan support and character progression systems; while players will still get rewards for defeating enemies, the full game will be utilizing a different method of progression.

Those on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can expect Destiny 2 to launch on September 6th, before Bungie's long-anticipated shooter sequel makes the journey across to PC in time for September 24th.

Playable during the game's beta period will be the game's first story mission where players will first encounter Ghaul and witness the fall of the Tower. Everyone, regardless of console or pre-order status, can play from July 21 to July 23. The PC version will release on October 24th.
