Destiny 2 Beta is just around the corner. Bungie announced it during Sony’s E3 Press Conference in June. If you’re wondering what things we can do in this Open Beta. Well, it’s just the same built as shown during the E3 Conference. But there are some other things that we’ll get to play for the first time like the new Crucible game-mode called Countdown. Bungie also announced that players get to tryout Control game-mode as well on two control-specific maps.
If we talk about PvE, we can get our hands-on one Strike called “The Inverted Spire” and a Story Mission “Homecoming”. There will only be 6 sub-classes available in this built. Gunslinger Hunter, Voidwalker Warlock & Striker Titan. New sub-classes includes Dawnblade for Warlocks, Arcstrider for Hunters & Sentinel for Titans. Sadly, we can’t try out the last sub-class in this Beta. The New Social Space called “The Farm” will be available for one hour (so you don’t want to miss it) on Sunday, July 23 at 10 AM Pacific. Early Access Open Beta will start July 18 at 10AM Pacific. Note: Players will need PlayStation Plus on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Live on Xbox One in order to play Crucible and Strike. Story mission will not require online subscriptions.
If you’re unable to pre-order Destiny 2 before the Early Access Beta goes live, there’s still a way to get it for free on PlayStation 4. PlayStation Japan announced earlier this week that Japan accounts can download the beta even if they haven’t booked Destiny 2. Here’s what they said:
Since Japan will be open beta, you can join this beta without having to book “Destiny 2”.
To participate, please download the “Destiny 2” beta version from the PlayStation ™ Store during the download period.
So, there you have it! All you need to do is to create a Japan PSN account and you’re good to play Destiny 2 Beta with your friends. They Beta is 13GB on PlayStation 4. Also, according to Bungie, you do need to update the beta in order to play it later today when it does live! Good Luck!
