When Does The Destiny 2 Beta Start For PC Gamers?
As it stands right now there are not too many details floating around when it comes to the PC beta. What is currently known right now is that Destiny 2 will have beta on the PC platform. However, we only know that the beta will open up at some point during late August.
We’re unsure if this beta will open up sooner to those who pre-order on the PC platform or just how long the beta will run for.
What Will Be Included Within The Destiny 2 Beta?
There’s plenty content to go through within the Destiny 2 beta which should hopefully be enough to give players enough to determine if the video game is well worth the purchase if they have yet to pre-order the title.
For starters, gamers will get to enjoy the first mission within the Destiny 2 campaign which is known as Homecoming. Outside of the campaign, there will be the Endless Vale and Control game modes which are more in-tuned with the multiplayer aspect of the game.
A new Strike will be available as well for multiplayer. Gamers are able to bring in two of their friends to go through or they can be picked randomly with the in-game matchmaking.
Gamers will also get the chance to try out the new classes Dawnblade Warlock, Arcstrider Hunter, and the Sentinel Titan. Outside of that, on July 23, 2017, players will be able to enjoy the new social space which is also the last day that players can log into the beta for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
Don’t Fret There’s Going To Be Problems!
With any beta, there will be a slew of issues that will likely pop up during server testing. You’ll come across errors, black screen, bugs, and other pesky networking issues. This is something Bungie has brought up already.
Don’t Expect Everything In The Beta!
This beta won’t include a variety of content promised in Destiny 2. Some of the services that will be in the new social space will be unavailable, there won’t be clan support, and progression will not carry over from the beta into the main game.
When Does Destiny 2 Officially Launch?
After the beta officially ends all eyes will likely look at the official video game launch. Destiny 2 is set to launch on September 6, 2017, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. The PC version of the video game will launch during the following month, October 24, 2017.
