As many of you already know, Destiny 2 has been confirmed. After that, the floodgates have almost completely opened. We’ve gotten a lot of information about the game in rapid succession, including that Destiny 2 is coming to PC. The official launch date is September 8th, for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, guardians will have the opportunity to give the game a spin before it officially comes out.

The Destiny 2 Beta will start in summer 2017. It sounds like it will be open beta, though that hasn’t yet been confirmed. Hopefully, everybody that wants to try the game out will have a chance to do so. However, you can get access even earlier than that. If you preorder the game, you’ll get early Beta access. There’s already several packages you can preorder on the Destiny 2 website. It appears you’re gonna have to be quick about it, though. According to the website, it’s “limited time only, while Beta codes last”.

We don’t yet know when the Destiny 2 Summer Beta will become available, nor when it will launch. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as more information comes out. Until then, be sure to check out the gameplay live stream on May 18th. And if you’re considering preordering the game, you should know that the PS4 version will have timed exclusive content until Fall 2018.
