For anyone who is yet to try out the new Destiny 2 beta, or just wants some extra time to test out the game, there is some good news in store. Bungie has announced that the game's open beta, which opened its doors last week, will continue past its previously announced end date and operate for an extra two days.
Initially, the beta was only available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players who pre-ordered the game, described as an 'early access' beta. On July 21, the beta gave way for all console players to join in the fun.
The unexpected beta extension notice arrived over Twitter, where the developer announced that the test period will now end its run on Tuesday, July 25 at 6pm PDT. Bungie's reasoning for the continuation was for additional service testing, and as such, the developer warned that the two extra days would be used to stress its game servers, so don't expect a very smooth experience going in. Even so, it may still be a better experience than the server issues the beta faced back when it began.
Bungie announced what's included in the event and a list of known issues that may be encountered in the beta last week, a good place to start for any new players that are looking to jump in. Following the console beta, A PC exclusive beta is set to begin sometime in late August. It's unclear if the PC beta will feature the same content as the console one, or include some new surprises.
