Destiny 2 Beta Guide

The Destiny 2 Beta is almost here.  Below you will find out all the details on what this beta will bring

Experience “Homecoming,” the opening cinematic story missions

Complete the “Inverted Spire” Three-player coopertive Strike

Face-off against other players in two competitive modes

Both PVP Modes use the new 4v4 team format:

Countdown (paired with Midtown):

  • A new competitive mode where players spawn on either Offense or Defense, and when the round ends you swap sides and roles. The goal is to plant a bomb at the enemy base, and then defend it until it explodes. Each round is worth one point. First team to six wins. To revive a teammate, you must use a revive token. Power weapon ammo is only granted to the one player who pulls it. Working as a team is the key to victory

Control (paired with Endless Vale):

  • A newly refined take on the competitive mode Control, where players must capture and defend zones to earn points while defeating their opponents to gain additional points. If all zones are captured, players will receive a power play to gain additional points per kill.

 

Battle your way across two new PVP new maps
