Destiny 2 launches Sept. 6, exclusive PS4 content detailed (update)

Crucible map, strike and more

Destiny 2 will arrive Sept. 6 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — two days before the previously announced Sept. 8 release date.

Other PS4 exclusives for Destiny 2 include the “Lake of Shadows” strike, unnamed gear, the “City Apex” ship, the “Borealis” exotic weapon and the “Retribution” PvP map.

Destiny 2 will get a beta this July on consoles, and in August on Windows PC, Activision announced today.

The beta for Destiny, which offered players a glimpse at the early game, took place in July 2014, a little less than two months before the game’s release date. Following a small public alpha in June 2014, more than 4.6 million players participated in the Destiny beta, which was available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. By the end of July, Bungie opened up the beta, so that those without codes could participate.

Each of Destiny’s three classes were available, and players could level up several times. The beta also allowed players to experience a handful of story missions, the Crucible and a strike.

Update: Destiny 2 director Luke Smith wrote on Twitter that Destiny 2 will launch Sept. 6 on PS4 and Xbox One. We’ve edited the story to reflect this.
