Aside from gameplay changes, the upcoming "Destiny 2 [VIDEO]" beta for PC will also feature fixes for some glitches that were experienced in the previous beta. The Farm is located in the European Dead Zone, itself a new region in Destiny 2, and will only be accessible for one hour in the console beta for Destiny 2 later this month, with no details yet on whether the same will be true for the PC beta in August. Based on the latest blog from Bungie, it appears that the developers were not aware of this glitch until players found it in the console beta.
But just because the Destiny 2 console beta was a technical test doesn't mean that Bungie isn't changing content and balancing combat as well. But even for those who won't try the PC beta, it won't be long until they can get their hands on the game.
While Destiny 2 will take player and group skill rating into account at all times, it will be less of a factor in Quickplay.
Matchmaking for the Competitive mode will focus on putting Guardians of a similar skill level together.
The winning score in Control has been extended, because matches were previously over too quickly.
Bungie has also revealed that while the overlay functionalities of hardware performance monitors will not be compatible with the game, they will still be able to function in the background.
According to Gamespot, such glitches include the Infinite Super Glitch, in which Infinite Supers function properly until a player loses an eye.
Discovered later in the beta, a glitch allowed Warlocks to jump extremely high as well as shoot across the map at high speeds has been patched.
The time it takes to charge up Super Abilities has been reduced, as Bungie admitted that was an issue in the console beta.
To help ensure that every player will have a fair shot at fun and glory in Destiny 2 on PC, we resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". That has now been fixed, except for perks that directly buff melee range for Warlocks.
TWEAKED: Increased Grenade Damage in PvE Increased damage helps Grenades feel as powerful as they should facing hordes of alien combatants and, more specifically, makes the longer cooldowns more palatable. "In the console beta, the "worth it" part wasn't quite there yet".
"We want abilities to be slightly more rare, but worth it".
TWEAKED: Increased Power Ammo drops in PvE This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks.
Though it's beta is out by August end, Destiny 2 arrives on October 24th for PC.
