Destiny 2's Open Beta Gets a Trailer Ahead of 18th July Launch

Get hyped for the Destiny 2 console beta with this action-packed trailer

The Destiny 2 beta will include the opening mission from the game, a strike, and PvP modes to test out.

Those who choose to pre-order the shared-world shooter ahead of time will gain access to the testing phase from July 18th and July 19th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively, as per Sony's ongoing content partnership with Activision.

As we already knew, PC players won't get access to the beta before late August, but you can get a taste of what awaits in the trailer below. However, the PC version of the game is due for an October release, so it's no surprise that its beta will come later down the line. As for Control, there's another new map built with the mode in mind.

The Strike can be played by you and two friends, or you can utilise the Matchmaking to introduce you to a Fireteam of Guardians. For just one hour starting at 6pm BST/10am PT, Bungie is opening up the doors to the new social space replacing the Tower - The Farm. The beta event takes place until July 21st.
