The Destiny 2 Beta is scheduled to begin on July 18th, 2017. To get access to the Destiny 2 Beta you’ll need to pre-order the game, in doing so you will get access to it during the “early access” period of testing. The Destiny 2 Beta will also be available to those who do not pre-order the game as well, it will just be a little bit later. Times for the beta differ depending on which platform you’re playing on as well.
Destiny 2 Beta Dates by Platform
On 7/18 the Destiny 2 Early Access Beta will begin on the PlayStation 4.
On 7/19 the Destiny 2 Eary Access Beta will begin on the Xbox One.
For those who do not pre-order the game, the Destiny 2 Beta will be open to all and begin on 7/21/17.
There is also a PC Beta for Destiny 2, which Bungie says will begin sometime in late August.
How to Access the Destiny 2 Beta
If you’ve pre-ordered the game on the Xbox, Blizzard, or PlayStation Store your account will automatically be granted access to the beta when it launches. However, if you’ve pre-ordered the game from a participating retailer that gave you a code, you’ll need to redeem that code on Bungie’s website. This code can be used to gain access for one of the three platforms that the game will launch on.
Following the beta, Destiny 2 is slated to release on September 6th, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a PC release date set for shortly after.
