According to Bungie's weekly update, the PC beta will include several of the same missions and modes found in the console beta such as the Homecoming story mission, Inverted Spire Strike, and the two competitive multiplayer modes, Countdown and Control.
Bungie did announce that the PC beta will have a new map, with Control taking place on Javelin-4 instead of Midtown, which was the Control map on the console. Bungie also included some additional tuning into the PC beta after getting feedback on stuff like power ammo and super abilities. However, Bungie assures players that these changes are subtle, but asks console beta testers playing again on PC to see whether they can catch the small changes.
The stakes for the Destiny 2 PC beta are a little higher given that this is the first time the game has appeared on the PC. As such, Bungie has a couple goals for the PC beta including testing how Destiny 2 performs on a new platform and make sure first-time PC players get a good feel for the series.
Weirdly enough, there's no mention about The Farm, Destiny 2's new social space. Perhaps the fact that some players found a way to hide on the Farm for much longer than the allotted beta time had something to do with it?
The Destiny 2 beta first appeared on consoles, first for PlayStation 4 players who pre-ordered the game, before opening up to every console player. A direct follow-up to Bungie's semi-MMOFPS, Destiny 2 has danced with backlash for abandoning the 10-year plan Bungie promised with the first Destiny game.
