Publisher Activision and Developer Bungie will be soon beginning the Destiny 2 beta phase. players who have pre-ordered the game would receive a code before the closed beta goes live to access the game.
But as the game is still in development so do expect some bugs and glitches during the gameplay. Devs of the game have made everyone aware on their blog that they are testing the game and so the beta will have bugs and issues which can impact their gameplay experience. they even listed some of the issues which players will encounter.
- Bungie will be testing server stability throughout the Beta, which may cause error codes to appear periodically
- Not all content has been localized in all languages
- Players may experience a variety of networking error codes when attempting to play the Beta
- Players sometimes are Kicked to Orbit after witnessing a black screen when entering a Countdown match
- Players may sometimes be placed at the beginning of the Inverted Spire Strike Activity when joining in progress
- Sandbox balancing is still taking place: Some weapons or abilities may have higher or lower damage than intended
Bungie further instructed their players that if they find any other bugs apart from the one listed above they should report about it at the Destiny 2 Help Forum so that the devs can fix it.
The beta is scheduled to go live on July 18 and will end on July 23 for consoles, players who have pre-ordered the game from the retailer will receive a 9 digit code to get early access to the game. if you face trouble with code there is a full guide on how to do it properly on the blog.
