Guardians, the time is finally here for you to don your gear and take arms against your foes. That’s right, the Destiny 2 Beta is here! Starting today, players who have pre-ordered Destiny 2 from participating retailers can jump into the Beta for the Early Access period. That starts today on PlayStation 4 and lasts until July 20, and Early Access for Xbox One players will begin on July 19 and last until July 20.

If you haven’t pre-ordered the game, the Beta will open up to all console players on July 21 through July 23, and the Destiny 2 Beta for PC will begin in late August.



Stand shoulder to shoulder in battle with Commander Zavala and the other Vanguard as you try to defend the Tower from a mysterious new enemy intent on destroying your home and extinguishing your Light… forever.



The Cabal awoke something deep beneath Nessus’ surface, and you’ll have to face it. Infiltrate an enemy stronghold alongside two other Guardians to take down all active threats. Fight alongside your friends or match up with other players.



Put your competitive skills to the test in 4v4 matches against the most dangerous enemy of all – other players.

  • COUNTDOWN: Live-fire Crucible training with captured Cabal explosives. Your team will be tasked with planting or defusing the bomb. Teams switch sides after each round, and the first team to six points wins the match.
  • CONTROL: Capture and defend strategically placed zones to earn bonus points for each opponent you defeat. Holding additional zones increases your score bonus.
