A lot of players are currently enjoying their time with the open beta for Destiny 2. It looks like the beta is a success as many good preview impressions are already pouring in for the game. In even more good news, it looks like we’ll be getting a chance to play the Destiny 2 beta longer as Bungie is moving the deadline.
A recent tweet by Bungie reveals that players will have access to an extension of the Destiny 2 beta. “The Destiny 2 Open Beta has been extended through Tuesday 7/25 for additional service testing. Expected completion is 6 PM PDT,” says the tweet. The beta was officially set to close on July 23.
This is definitely good news for both players and Bungie. On the side of the players, they’ll be able to try out the game more to see which areas need tweaking. It’s also a good chance for players who are new to the series to see if the game is worth getting when it launches this September. As for Bungie, prolonging the beta will give them the chance to see more of the game’s flaws. This means that the chances for a more polished game on day one is higher.
The Destiny 2 beta began on July 21. It gives players the chance to test out a few things in the game before it launches Sept. 6. Players can test out the opening mission called Homecoming, two types of PvP modes, and a Strike mission.
Aside from a taste of a few single player and multiplayer modes, the beta also gives players the chance to test the new subclasses for the Guardians including the Striker for the Titan, Dawnblade for the Warlock and the Gunslinger for the Hunter.
