Destiny 2 Reveal Trailer and Beta Confirmed on PS4, Xbox One and PC
After many months speculating when Destiny 2 would make an appearance, we have reached the day of the official Destiny 2 reveal trailer. With the internet certainly in danger of melting from hype, we take the opportunity to breakdown the trailer and learn as much as we can about Bungie's sequel to the original Destiny game.
In a typical move from the hype "playbook", just a couple of days before the reveal trailer, Bungie showcased the new Destiny 2 logo along with a teaser trailer leading up to the reveal trailer. The teaser itself gave away a fair number of hints about Destiny 2, including a large glimpse at the burning city on Earth, a red guard faction of the Cabal and some tell-tale humor from Cayde
Fast forward to today and the first and probably most important fact we learned is that Destiny 2 does have an official release date of September 8th
which is exactly the same month as the leaked posters which appeared a week or so ago. This is of course one of the first weeks of September, making Destiny 2 the first major game to release for the fall of 2017. With some other massive titles also due for release around the same time, including Red Dead Redemption 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Call of Duty WWII, Destiny has the chance to make it's mark before the lead up to christmas.
Furthermore and also equally as important, Bungie also confirmed that a Beta will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC during summer 2017
Bungie will be conducting a public Beta test of Destiny 2, including most major modes and activities featured in the game, prior to retail launch.
Beta details will be announced soon but Bungie did confirm that to get access to the Beta you MUST pre-order on one of the three platforms (PS4, Xbox One or PC).How to pre-order
