Destiny 2 Gameplay Reveal - Watch it Here - Beta Release Date, Clans, Trailer, Special Editions - Everything We Know

On top of giving us news about Destiny 2's Clans, its new Guided Games social system, and telling us the PC version of the game will be distributed and handled through Blizzard's Battle.net instead of Steam, we also learned a beta of Destiny 2 is coming soon.

When? We don't know yet. Mid- through- late July seems like a good bet: The beta for the original Destiny launched in July before the final game dropped on September 9. You can read USgamer's impressions of the original Destiny to get an idea of what might be included in Destiny 2's beta.

If you've pre-ordered Destiny 2 at a retailer or online, you can head over to Bungie's official site to unlock your beta key.

Destiny 2 hits PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on September 8. You can find all the information we have about the game at this convenient resource.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
