Destiny 2 beta is underway on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as we speak. Players are experiencing the next installment of what is Activision’s multi-million dollar franchise. The beta was supposed to end on July 23 but has now been extended until Tuesday, July 25.
The beta was extended for 45 hours, allowing the players as well as the developers to test the game further. Speaking of testing, it is exactly the reason why Bungie has extended the Destiny 2 beta. According to Bungie, Monday and Tuesday will feature more dangerous experiments in Destiny 2.

The beta is giving players access to a number of features including a story mission and the game’s PvP mode, the Crucible. You will also experience a co-op strike mission and have access to all three subclasses.
Story Mission: Homecoming
Crucible (PvP) modes : Countdown and Control
Crucible (PvP) maps: Vostok and Endless Vale
Co-op Strike: Inverted Spire
Sub-classes: Dawnblade, Arcstrider, and Sentinel
Social: The Farm, however, this was only accessible for one hour on July 23rd at 10AM PST.
Interesting, you can also shoot down some ships in Destiny 2 which is fun but a complete waste of time.
Destiny 2 beta will also be available on PC late August. The testing on consoles has been “amazingly helpful” but the beta on PC holds more importance in terms of gathering data to improve the experience.
Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at Bungie and is scheduled to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
