Destiny 2 Open Beta Content - What is Included and What is Not

Destiny 2 open beta will have some interesting content while it’s live. The beta stuff players can get their hands on, even just for a little time, will give them just enough of a taste of what is coming. The open beta will last up to six days, in July for consoles, and in August for PC.

What is included in the first Destiny 2 Beta?

The short answer is: everything you’ve seen so far in the official trailers. If you were thinking it will only be multiplayer, you’re wrong, as there will be more to it. Everything you need to know about it, as always, is listed on the official site.

A Mission: The opening mission and cinematics from Destiny 2’s Campaign.

A Strike: Strike at the heart of a Vex stronghold – The Inverted Spire. Bring two willing allies, or let Matchmaking introduce you to a Fireteam of Guardians.

Crucible Control Mode: 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.

Crucible Countdown Mode: 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.

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, you’ll be able to tour the new social space in Destiny 2. Starting at 10 AM Pacific, you’re welcome to kick the ball into the net or befriend a chicken. Most vendors and services will be offline. The goal is to see how many prople it can accommodate at once.

What is NOT included in Destiny 2 Open Beta?

Clan Support: It’s true that Clans will be supported in Destiny 2, but those features are not a part of this test.

Character Progression: You’ll receive rewards for defeating your enemies – be they Cabal, Vex, or other Guardians – but the Beta does not represent how your characters will evolve in Destiny 2.

Character Continuity: Destiny 2 is a fresh start. Nothing we do in the Beta will carry over to the final version of the game on September 6. Of course, for every rule, there is an exception… There are some accomplishments that carry over to Destiny 2, but they are not a part of the open beta.

Destiny 2 Open Beta Dates and Reward

If you pre-order the game, you can play the beta during the early access. There are different beta times for PlayStation, Xbox One and PC. If you choose to participate in this event, once you log in when the game first goes live in September, you’ll get a Beta Emblem, commemorating your presence.
