Destiny 2 PC beta kicks off soon
Destiny 2 fans are counting down to the release of the PC beta, which starts later today.

Ahead of the game’s October release date, the Bungie shooter makes its long-awaited PC debut as part of the closed beta.

The Destiny 2 PC beta has an August 28 start date and a 6pm UK start time for pre-order customers. That’s 10am PDT if you live in the US.

The open beta – which can be played even without a pre-order – starts a day later on August 29, so there’s not long to wait.

The shortened PC beta period ends just a few days later on August 31, although it’s possible Bungie will extend the beta like it did with PS4 and Xbox One.

If you don’t want to miss a second of the action, then it’s worth pre-loading the PC beta right now.

To pre-load the PC beta, fans must sign up for a compulsory Battle.net account from the Destiny website.
