Destiny 2 Beta extended for another two days

Destiny 2 beta extended 2

It’s pretty much par for the course that a beta event is extended past its original sell by date. As much as these are meant to be for critical feedback for developers, beta events are marketing opportunities as well. So it’s no surprise that the well received early taste of Destiny is sticking around just a little longer, giving you a full two extra days to mop up some Strikes, get in on PvP or just give it a shot for the first time.

Bungie confirmed the extension via Twitter, with the new closing date now falling on July 25th at 18:00 PDT (so that’s 03:00 here on Wednesday morning).

The beta will plunge you into the game’s story-heavy opening, as you attempt to withstand the opening attack on the Traveller and keep the Tower from being completely destroyed (spoilers, you fail). The beta also has a few other modes on offer, including a Strike in the Inverted Spire at the heart of a Vex stronghold. You’re able to hop in with a friend or rely on matchmaking to make it through the rather challenging gauntlet.

The beta content is understandably limited though, but you won’t have to wait too long for the real deal. Destiny 2 is launching on Xbox One and PS4 this September, with a PC release happening later in October. The PC version is also getting its own beta next month, in case you prefer mouse, keyboard and higher refresh rates.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • No thanks, it was boring enough. The only good that came from this beta is that I don’t have to spend that ludicrous amount of money on this game anymore.

    understandably limited? There’s no social area nor any free roaming which the previous Beta had. Once you’ve done the mission and the strike you’re done, unless you’re into PVP of course.

    As a beta, I give it 4/10. Pvp doesn’t interest me much.

    This was not the beta I was excited to see. Pvp sucked, strike sucked. It was pretty though… like a Destiny 1.5, not a true sequel. Wake me up when September ends…
