Destiny 2’s release date has gotten pulled up a little early. The game will now launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One first on September 6th. *Edit* PC version of the game is now set to release on October 24th.
During Sony’s E3 press conference we got a new trailer, and some information regarding the content exclusives that PlayStation users will receive. PS4 players will have the following content.
- Lake of Shadows: an exclusive strike
- City Apex: an exclusive ship
- Weapon Borealis: an exclusive exotic weapon
- Retribution: an exclusive PVP map
This content will only be available to PS4 users for at least a year, at which it will most likely launch on both Xbox One and PC. A similar deal was made with Sony and Activision for the launch of Destiny, but this time around we have a much longer timed exclusive, and for a lot more content.
The new trailer is ready for you to enjoy. Sony also announced that the beta for Destiny 2 will start for those that pre-order on PS4 on July 18th at 6 p.m BST and July 19th at 6 p.m BST for those on Xbox One. The beta will become open to everyone on July 21st at 6 p.m and will end on July 24th at 5 am BST. The PC beta will be sometime in August.
It turns out that Destiny 2 will not be arriving on PC on the 9th of September as previously detailed, but rather the game launching over 6 weeks later on the 24th of October. This has of coursed left a lot of gamer annoyed that the launch is delayed so much on PC, but Bungie believe the extra time is needed to make sure the game will be running perfectly.
