Today Bungie released more information of what fans can expect from the Destiny 2 Beta and it isn’t that surprising.
According to their website Bungie’s Destiny 2 Beta will be exactly what fans expected. Some of the features and modes that will be available in beta are:
Homecoming: The opening mission and cinematics from Destiny 2’s Campaign.
Countdown: Enter the Crucible to battle other Guardians in a brand new mode. Attack or Defend the base on a new map custom-built to support this new game type.
Control: The original standard for Crucible combat is back, with some impactful changes. Control the zones on another new map built with this objective in mind.
The Inverted Spire: Strike at the heart of a Vex stronghold. Bring two willing allies, or let Matchmaking introduce you to a Fireteam of Guardians.
New Subclasses: The new fighting style for each Class will be at the ready. Choose from the Dawnblade Warlock, Arcstrider Hunter, or Sentinel Titan.
The Farm: For one hour, on Sunday, July 23, we’re inviting you to tour the new social space in Destiny 2. Starting at 10AM Pacific, you’re welcome to kick the ball into the net or befriend a chicken. Most vendors and services will be offline. Our goals are to see how many of you it can accommodate at once.
Also players shouldn’t get their hopes up for more as the studio made it clear that clan support, character progression and character continuity will not be available in beta. That means what players experience in beta stays in beta and none of the beta data will transfer to the full game when it releases. Instead the millions that will take part in the beta will find a special emblem in game, when it releases in September.
To get in on the beta action you would need to pre-order the game to gain open beta early access. The beta starts on July 18- 20 on the PS4, July 19-20 on Xbox One, July 21-23 for console beta and in August for PC beta.
