The Beta for the upcoming videogame Destiny 2 was initially going to end on July 23, 9 p.m. Pacific time. However, the developers prepared a surprise for the fans of the series and extended the Beta. It will now end on July 25, at 6 p.m. Pacific time. The developers offered 48 more hours of experience for the players, in the hope that it will make them want to buy the game even more. After all, a little taste of something you want very much is the best way to want it even more. And videogame developers know this all too well.
Destiny 2 Beta has been extended
It’s interesting that even if they have extended the duration of the Beta, the developers warned the players about the possible existence of some technical issues within the game. But this is perfectly normal in a game that hasn’t been finished yet and the fans will surely understand. Also, during both first two days of the week, players will have to put up with some more tests which are meant to prepare the game for when it will be released. According to a message which Bungie posted on its official Twitter account, players should be ready to experiment some more “dangerous experiments”.
It’s also worth noting that the developers allowed players to speak up their minds and send their feedback, be it positive or negative. It’s all for the best, as the game will progress and developers will solve those issues. However, the main purpose of this Beta is not to identify technical issues but to test the game’s backend systems. So, maybe this prolonged Beta will look to further test those systems to make sure that everything is all right and functional.
Solving issues and making the game better
It’s worth noting that this morning, players were able to experience The Farm. This is a social gathering space which can now host about 36 players. This is more than double the number of players the social spaces in Destiny 1 could hold. Players should also know that Bungie will not add any new content during those two days. However, this is nothing new, as the Beta testing for the previous game was done in a similar manner. Bungie will release Destiny 2 on September 6 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. One month later, it will also come out on PC.
