Now Playing: Destiny 2 – Official Open Beta Launch Trailer

For those that want to try a strike there's the Inverted Spire, which is set in a Vex stronghold and can be played with two friends. Matchmaking is available to fill these slots for those that aren't using a pre-arranged Fireteam.

Then, from 10 AM PT on July 23, you can visit the social space, which is called The Farm. There you can goof off and do things like kick around a soccer ball or make friends with a chicken. You can find more on what's in the Destiny 2 beta, what isn't, and known issues here.

Destiny 2 launches on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, and on October 24 for PC. The game will feature considerable changes from the first Destiny, such as a social space that'll evolve over time and a new Raid that's "unlike anything we've done," according to Bungie. In addition, it'll feature a lot more story than the first game.
