The early access of the Open Beta for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users for the upcoming first-person shooter game, “Destiny 2” is already starting. By now PS4 players have already explored the game while Xbox One users are merely starting. In the game’s open beta, players will be allowed to play with the Strike and Crucible modes on both consoles. However, it appears that the game’s beta is useless unless you have a premium subscription.

Open Beta

The Strike and Crucible modes of “Destiny 2” are only accessible for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold members.

These two modes are online and feature matchmaking. This is the reason why Bungie requires the beta players with a subscription. For a beta to ask for online membership from its players in order to gain access to the multiplayer modes is quite strange.

Most of the time, game developers launch beta with access to its online content without requiring the participants of premium subscription. This is not the case, however, for Bungie’s second game installment. For players without the premium subscription, the only mode that they can access is The Homecoming Mission on the game’s single player mode.


The early access to the game’s open beta kicked off last July 18 at 10 a.m.

PST for PlayStation 4 users. On the other hand, the early access for Xbox One users will start at 10 a.m. PST on July 19. The early access is given to those who pre-ordered the title. Some have received early access codes through giveaways. The open beta for both consoles will start at 10 a.m. PST on July 21.

For PC users, Bungie has not yet revealed the specifics for the open beta of the said platform.

Earlier, it was revealed that it will be made available on August. It is worth noting that the first game installment was never released on PC. Users of the platform are excited that they too could enjoy the second game installment as Bungie this time will release it on PC.

Destiny 2” is an online only multiplayer first-person shooter game developed by Bungie.
