Destiny 2 Gets Beta Dates, Plus New Trailers

Activision revealed a new trailer for Destiny 2 during Sony’s E3 2017 showcase, but the interesting thing about the conference was that there wasn’t too many details between each trailer. Instead that content dropped alongside the trailer elsewhere, which seems to be what happened with Destiny 2.



First we have a new release date: console players (Xbox One and PS4) will see Destiny 2 on September 6th, while PC players will get the game a bit later on October 24th.

Second the beta for the game will begin July 18th for PS4 players that pre-order the game. Xbox One players that pre-order the game will get access on July 19th. On July 21st, ALL players can join in via an open beta that will last until July 23rd.

PC players will also get a beta stage in “late August,” but currently there are not further details about it.

Activision is also showcasing a new class at the show:

Arcstrider Hunter whose “super” ability is to summon an Arc-empowered staff to be used for close-quarters melee combat.

Also the PC version of the game is on display at E3 within the Nvidia booth. Which is good news.

“Everyone always says that they can’t wait for fans to get their hands on their game. But we really mean it. Destiny 2 looks so awesome, I’m thrilled to announce that we are moving the release date up to September 6,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “We are also hard at work with our friends at Bungie optimizing Destiny 2 for the PC, which we will be releasing in all its glory on October 24. And tonight, we are taking a deeper look at Ghaul, our villain in Destiny 2, who the world is going to love to hate. It’s going to be a big week for Destiny fans.”
