Today sees the launch of the Destiny 2 beta for everyone who pre-ordered the game on PS4. Xbox One pre-orderers can look forward to diving in tomorrow, and the beta will go completely open this weekend for all console players.
Andy McNamara and I have both been dedicated players of the original Destiny since its launch in 2014, and after many months of waiting, we sat down today for a first look at the beta. As we show off sections of the story, strike, and competitive action that the beta offers, we also took the time to discuss some of the changes coming to the game, how the game appeals to newcomers and lapsed players, and also the numerous aspects of gameplay that we have yet to learn about for the big sequel.
Enjoy the video!
