In case you’ve not had long enough with one mission, one strike, and one crucible match, the Destiny 2 open beta has been extended.
The Destiny 2 beta has been running over the past week or so. First came the pre-order bonus ‘early’ beta access – on PS4 from July 18-20th, and on Xbox One from July 19-20th – followed by the open beta, available to all console players over the weekend just gone, from the 21st to 23rd of July.
There’s not much in it, really.
First you’ve got the first campaign mission, ‘Homecoming’, because only you can save the solar system, or something. You know, along with a couple of other million people, just like how there were more Division agents than there could ever be civilians. Oh. And Nathan Fillion wants you to collect loot, but it’s totally not trying to be like Borderlands.
Then you’re got a single cooperative strike, ‘The Inverted Spire’, where you team up with two other guardians. To strike. Cooperatively.
And finally, there’s ‘Countdown’, a competitive Crucible 4v4 match, where one team tries to plant explosives while the other tries to defuse it. Which is not at all like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, honest.
So, if for some reason you feel the urge to play those same three things over and over again – or more likely, you’ve not really had chance to play yet and want to check it out – you’ve got a couple more days to go at the Destiny 2 open beta.
It was due to finish yesterday – on July 23rd, 2017 – but has been extended until 1am BST (6pm Pacific, 8pm Eastern on July 25th) on Wednesday, 26th July, 2017. Have at it, guardians.
