Destiny 2 issues you may get at beta launch

In addition, Bungie has also outlined a number of potential issues with the Destiny 2 beta that players may encounter. We’ve included them below.

  • Players may experience a variety of networking error codes when attempting to play the Beta
  • Bungie will be testing server stability throughout the Beta, which may cause error codes to appear periodically
  • Location names sometimes do not appear during Crucible gameplay
  • 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
  • Not all content has been localized in all languages
  • If you encounter any network related issues during the Destiny 2 Beta, please follow our Network Troubleshooting Guide to ensure proper network settings for Destiny gameplay.

Destiny 2 is scheduled for release on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017, with a PC version arriving in late October. The game takes place following an attack on the Tower by a Cabal unit known as The Red Legion, which results in the local Guardians losing all of their hard-earned gear and loot. In other words, you’ll be starting from scratch when you boot up the game, save for any cosmetic touches you’ve applied to your character. 

Bungie has made a number of significant changes to Destiny 2 in comparison to its predecessor, including a revamped Crucible mode focusing on 4v4 matches, a larger open-world with more side quests (known as Adventures), plus an all-new hub complete with its own football pitch. Analysts are already predicting big things for Destiny 2, with the game forecast to sell three-five million copies in its first three months on sale across all formats. Pleasingly, Grimoire Cards have been given the boot.
