    Much to my own surprise I was actually considering a look at D2, but I've heard rumblings of a lot of PS4 exclusives. That doesn't make this Xbox owner exactly anxious to buy it.

    The first game did the same thing. Looks like this time around it's 1 strike, some armor, a ship, a PvP map, and a sniper rifle that won't be available on XBox for a year. Not sure how much this effected/bothered players the first time around. We tended to have a larger Destiny group on PS4, not sure how much this had to do with anything.

    Timed exclusives always suck, but hey, it's better than delaying the entire game for a year on one console, Rise of the Tomb Raider? At least Xbox players will still be able to play and have 99% the same experience.

    First gameplay details of Destiny 2’s open beta ahead of its PS4 launch this month. First campaign mission, Crucible modes and more.

    Bungie isn’t messing around, as today it revealed the first details of Destiny 2‘s beta, which kicks off later this month. The beta – with early access from 18th July if you pre-order and 21st July for everyone else – will provide a sampling of Destiny’s different play modes. Here’s what’s scheduled on PS4, straight from Bungie HQ:

    Destiny 2 campaign

    You’ll get a chance to try the first mission in Destiny 2’s campaign. What does Dominus Ghaul want with the Traveler?

    Crucible competitive play.
    The Destiny 2 Open Beta comes with support for two competitive modes. In the new mode Countdown, you’ll attack or defend a base on a map custom-built for this new scenario. In Control, an update on the Crucible standby, you’ll attempt to dominate zones on a map built for this objective type.

    Strike

    In the Inverted Spire Strike, you’ll assault a well-protected Vex stronghold with the help of two teammates. You can also use matchmaking to join up with a Guardian fireteam!

    New subclasses

    Each Class’s new fighting style will be available in the Open Beta — that means Warlocks can try out the Dawnblade, Hunters the Arcstrider, and Titans the Sentinel.

    Don't worry, you can just play PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds instead!

    Is the open beta available for download now or does it become available later?

    I've not seen anything yet.

    Edit: Looks like the download code will be emailed.

    The Destiny 2 beta doesn’t go live until next week, but you can prepare for the party by preloading the beta starting July 13, publisher Activision confirmed today to Polygon.

    Downloads of the beta will be available worldwide as of 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow, an Activision representative told Polygon. The spokesperson also confirmed that the preload time applies to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, even though the beta will go live a day earlier on PS4. There’s no word on the download size yet.

    While Activision will eventually open up the Destiny 2 beta to all PS4 and Xbox One owners, you’ll only be able to preload it if you have a code. There are only two ways to obtain a beta key: pre-ordering the game, or receiving a code from a third party — like, say, a gaming publication such as Polygon! (We’ve got a bunch of codes from Activision, and we’ll be doing a giveaway soon.)
