You can gain access to the beta by pre-ordering a copy of the game. Bungie will also host a giveaway on social media. I wish you luck.

The beta will feature:

  • Opening story mission, Homecoming
  • Two Crucible modes, Countdown (new to Destiny 2, attack and defend based) and Control (classic zone control)
  • Two Crucible maps, the Felwinter Peak-set Vostok and Endless Vale
  • Co-operative Strike, The Inverted Spire
  • New sub-classes, Warlock (Dawnblade), Hunter (Arcstrider) and Titan (Sentinel)
  • Social Space, The Farm (for one hour only on 23 July at 6 pm BST)
  • New emblem to unlock in the full game if you play the beta
