Destiny 2 just got its release dates for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The open beta will start on 21 July, but those who pre-order the game will be able to access it a couple of days early. Frame rates will be capped at 30 fps on the consoles. PC will be the exception to this rule.

Destiny 2's open beta for PlayStation 2 and Xbox One will be available next month. The trailer shown at E3 broke the news that everyone who pre-orders the game will gain early access to the beta.

The early access part of the equation will start on 18 July for PlayStation 4 and the open beta will, well be open, starting Friday, 21 July. Xbox One owners who pre-ordered the game will be able to access it on 19 July.

So there are your plans for that particular weekend. The beta will end on 23 July so the players can get a feel for the upcoming title without loosing interest even before the full game hits the shelves on 06 September.

The September release date is for all you PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners out there. The PC version will be available on 24 October.

In other Destiny 2 news, the game will be capped at 30 frames per second on all consoles. As for the PC version, however, the frame rate will be unlocked. When the guys from Bungie say all consoles, they mean all consoles. All. Of. Them. Even those that aren't even available for purchase yet.

I'm talking about the Xbox One X. First, I have to ask: Is Microsoft going for the XOXO abbreviation with these names and, if so, will the next Xbox be called Xbox One X Only?

Xbox One X will be available on 07 November and it will cost around £399. Despite being touted as the most powerful console ever, Xbox One X will still run Destiny 2 at 30 fps. The developers gave no comment on the game's resolution on either console.
