According to Bungie, Destiny 2 will have a beta period starting on 25th May, running until 27th May.

No specific start time was confirmed, but given that the 25th is a Tuesday, it will most likely begin at the weekly reset time, which is 10:00am PT (6:00pm BST).

Destiny 2 crossplay beta - How to play

Accessing the beta is relatively straightforward and doesn't require players to jump through any loops and hoops, as Bungie revealed that a dedicated Vanguard Strikes playlist will be up during the time period in which the crossplay beta is available.

Who can access the beta?

Bungie confirmed that players from PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, and Stadia can partake in the beta.

"Teams will be scouring data and performing a multitude of actions to test the integrity of our upcoming Crossplay system," Bungie added.

Destiny 2 crossplay beta - Can you play with friends?

Sadly, that won't be the case during the beta, Bungie explained that this decision is simply because they want to focus on the matchmaking aspect of this feature, thus, the option to create fireteams with friends on other consoles won't be available.

Destiny 2 crossplay beta - Rewards

For players that test the feature participating in three Strikes or more, Bungie has prepared a nifty reward -- an exclusive emblem aptly titled "Stars Crossed."
