Destiny 2 Beta Codes are used to gain access to the beta after you’ve preordered the game. They ensure you get early access to it, and are a part of every preorder. Some people are having trouble using them, though. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to redeem Destiny 2 beta code, depending on where you bought the game.
Destiny 2 beta key redemption
If you’ve bought it from a first-party digital shop (Playstation Store or Xbox Store), you’ll get access to the beta automatically when it starts. You won’t have a beta key, and you won’t have to waste time with the redemption process, since your purchase is tied to your account.
If you’ve preordered from anywhere else (Amazon, Gamestop, etc), you’ll get a beta code you need to redeem. You might get it via email, if you’ve purchased online, or on your receipt. If it’s an online purchase, the code might take up to 3 business days to arrive, so don’t worry if it’s not there immediately.
Once you have the code, simply go to the Destiny code redemption portal, log into your Bungie account and enter the code. The key will be tied to your account – you’ll get to choose your platform and get the download code later during the year.
How to register for Destiny 2 PC beta
PC players might find this whole experience more confusing than others. When registering on Bungie’s site, you’ll need to tie the account to a PSN or Xbox Live account, even if you’ve preordered the PC version of Destiny 2. This won’t tie your beta code to the platform you choose. It’s a necessary step for some reason, so you’ll have to register on one of the services, but you’ll get to choose your beta platform at a later date.
