If you've fired up the Destiny 2 beta only to be left wondering where the new social hub The Farm is, don't worry. I believe Bungie should have called what it's given us this week a demo, because it's not a beta.
Character Continuity: Destiny 2 is a fresh start.
With the Destiny 2 beta going open on PS4 and Xbox One on Friday, new players who haven't kept up with all the hubbub might want to know exactly what they're getting with this free chunk of Destiny 2.
The general consensus among the Destiny 2 community on Reddit, the official forums, and elsewhere is that certain abilities and movements in Destiny 2 are too slow while ammo is scarce in PVE activities.
The Destiny 2 beta has recently been closed to those who had an invite, but now the open beta is available from 18:00 BST today, meaning everyone can jump into both the campaign and multiplayer segments.
- If you encounter any network related issues during the Destiny 2 Beta, please follow our Network Troubleshooting Guide to ensure proper network settings for Destiny gameplay. For example, Game Director Luke Smith made a mild salute via Twitter to one player who tried to log in over 500 times before the beta was even available. In all truth, Destiny 2 was the first AAA game that I booked and honestly, I was pretty glad that I did. More uptime with power weapons in PvE will alleviate the tedium that comes with using only the game's workhorse guns. It is not anywhere close to as expansive as the original Destiny beta as the developers are trying to keep as much content as possible a surprise for the game's September 6 release. Players will be able to play soccer and make friends with chickens. It's a lengthy mission that you play co-operatively with other actual human players (the game matches you up easily and quickly). Again, it felt far more like a "Halo" mission - where I was battling through enemies as I progressed toward something.
The shooting in "Destiny 2" is top-of-class. In short, a little preview (very successful) of the solo section, that Bungie has wanted much more a big show here, excellent preparation in the mouth before walking on to the second section of this beta. Moreover, the attack and defend Countdown mode is also ready for play on the Endless Vale map, the report added. I seemed to be in the minority with my overall disappointment, but I wasn't alone. However, most players complained that the title's main campaign is somewhat meaningless and the game story was weak. But I returned to Destiny post-launch and fell madly in love with it, and - based on the fact that this build of the game is months old - I think I'm going to do the same with Destiny 2.
