“Destiny” may have had it issues when it was first released for the PS4 and Xbox One in September 2014, but it still quickly become one of the most successful games on both consoles. The highly-anticipated sequel will be released by Bungie on September 6, 2017, but some gamers will get the chance to try out “Destiny 2” starting tomorrow afternoon.
The “Destiny 2” beta will open on the PS4 on July 18 at 1 PM ET. It will become available on the Xbox One console 24 hours later. Only people that pre-ordered “Destiny 2” will get early access to the beta. Everyone will get a chance to play the multiplayer shooter on July 21. The console beta will officially close on July 23. You will need a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold account in order to play the online multiplayer modes offered in the “Destiny 2” beta.
While playing a video game before it is released is always exciting, only a small portion of “Destiny 2” will be available during the beta. Bungie has promised to deliver an epic story to the new game. You can get a glimpse of the “Destiny 2” story by playing the first campaign mission during the beta. Three multiplayer modes will also be available to play online with your friends. Strike is a new cooperative mode that can be played two other people. You can show off excellent shooting skills in the competitive multiplayer modes called Crucible and Control.
Bungie has announced that players will likely experience a few glitches and errors while playing, so take that into account when evaluating the game. The errors should be fixed before the full game is released in September. “Destiny 2” fans will also be disappointed to learn that their character progression in the beta will not carry over to the full game.
