If you own a console as well as your PC, you’ve got a little longer to check out what will probably be one of our platform’s biggest new releases this year: the Destiny 2 console beta has been extended by a couple of days.
What’s in the beta, and is it any good? Check out Matt’s Destiny 2 beta guide, and what he thought of it.
The announcement comes from Bungie’s technical support team on Twitter. The beta will now end at 18:00 PST tomorrow (Tuesday, 25 July). That’s 02:00 BST on Wednesday morning, for us in the UK.
The Destiny 2 Open Beta has been extended through Tuesday 7/25 for additional service testing. Expected completion is 6 PM PDT.
