The open beta kicked off on July 19 for Xbox One gamers who pre-ordered the game, and it was expanded to Xbox Live Gold subscribers two days laters on July 21. As a reminder, here are the main features available in the open beta:
- Play the opening story mission of the cinematic campaign
- Take on the enemy threat in a 3 player Cooperative Strike
- Put your competitive multiplayer skills to the test against others in 4v4 matches
- Fight solo, alongside your friends or match-make with other Guardians
You can download the Destiny 2 Open Beta from the Xbox Store, but you can also get it from the Microsoft online store over here. The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows on September 6, and we hope Bungie will make good use of all the feedback to polish the game and its servers.
