Destiny 2 PC beta to feature a new map and improvements suggested by console players

Destiny 2 PC beta is basically going to offer the same content that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version did. However, this one will also include a new map and some improvements.

Last week we’ve learned two important things about Destiny 2 beta on PC: when it is going to start and what sort of hardware you are going to need in order to play it. Now, Bungie Software has revealed the exact content of the PC beta. This one is more or less the same as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 beta, however, the PC version is going to include a new map as well as some improvements made thanks to the feedback provided by console players back in July. Here’s a word on that:

We’ve answered feedback on how often you have access to power ammo or your super abilities. These changes will be subtle. If you were onboard for the console Beta, see if you can detect them. If this is your first dance with Destiny, be sure to tell us how it feels.

To be more specific, Destiny 2 beta-testers on PC will get to play Homecoming Story Mission, which is a prologue to the sequel’s story, in which you must defend the citadel. There is also a three-person co-op Inverted Spire Strike as well as 4v4 game modes: Countdown on Midtown and Control on Javelin-4 – that latter is a new map.

Destiny 2 PC beta is going to start on August 28 for pre-order holders, with others joining them on August 29, and run through August 30.
