Developer Bungie has today announced via Twitter that the currently running Destiny 2 Open Beta gameplay development stage will now be extended for a little longer until July 26th, 2017.
Allowing those that have preorder the game to enjoy a little more game time, ahead of the game’s official launch which will take place on September 6th, 2017 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and a little later for PC on October 24th, 2017.
– Hunters will continue to have access to the Solar-based “Gunslinger” sub-class of the original, along with its “Golden Gun” super, with some subtle changes. The Hunter’s new sub-class for Destiny 2 is the Arc-based “Arcstrider”, replacing the “Bladedancer” sub-class of the original. Arcstrider will have a super that focuses on an electrified staff and a large amount of rapid mobility.
– Warlocks will have a new Solar-based sub-class called “Dawnblade” with a super called “Daybreak”, replacing the “Sunsinger” sub-class of the original. The Daybreak super allows the player to make Solar Light blades to strike enemies from mid-air, similar to the Titan’s “Sunbreaker” sub-class of the original with its “Hammer of Sol” super.
– Titans will continue to have access to the Arc-based “Striker” sub-class and its “Fists of Havoc” super of the original, with some noticeable gameplay changes. The Titan’s new sub-class for Destiny 2 is the Void-based “Sentinel”, replacing the “Defender” sub-class of the original. Sentinel’s super will allow the player to summon a shield that can block enemy fire and be used offensively, similar to Captain America’s shield.
