Along with the game's reveal trailer, Bungie has officially shared the first details about Destiny 2.

Today's news confirmed an open beta is coming to all platforms this summer, with those who preorder getting in first. The game itself then launches on September 8. Although Destiny wasn't available on PC, the sequel has been confirmed for the platform alongside the expected Xbox One and PS4 versions.

Here's the basic premise of the game, as described by Bungie: "Humanity's last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city's Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity's scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home."

Today's trailer doesn't feature any gameplay; that will be coming as part of a livestream scheduled for May 18. Also absent was your companion Ghost, but voice actor Nolan Northhas confirmed he is returning for the sequel.

Destiny 2 will have a season pass called the Expansion Pass that includes "Expansion I and Expansion II, offering brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armor, and gear."

The description stating that competitive multiplayer--and not competitive multiplayer maps--are included makes it sound as if Crucible isn't included in the base game. That might very well be a typo, but we've followed up with Activision to clarify and will report back when we know more.

Besides the base game, there will be several different special editions. A Digital Deluxe Edition comes with a Legendary sword, emote, and Cabal-themed emblem. The Limited Edition comes with the game, a steelbook case, the Expansion Pass, and various physical and digital bonuses. The Collector's Edition (pictured in the gallery above) comes with all of that plus additional physical bonuses, including a messenger bag/backpack combo and a solar-powered USB charger.
