I was assuming beta access would be in July or August... (after I'm done with Mass Effect), but your probably right that it would be in June, to give them a couple months to make minor adjustments before it comes out.

I think I'm going to pre-order the digital deluxe version. I played the first one so much, that a digital version would be better. Don't have to put in the disk then.

There, just preordered my digital copy via the Xbone store.

Now I can get back to the Age of Triumph quest for Destiny and Mass Effect.

Yeah, I plan on playing the Destiny 2 beta on Xbox. Just downloaded it on the Xbox One, after spending a half hour finding it. Why don't they make it easy? Well, it was easy, once I went on the net, rather than trying to find it on the Xbox One. Turns out you have to find it on the store on the net. Not sure why.

So I'm ready for next week.

Got into the Beta today for an hour.

Played the story and a bit of MP. Had fun. Having other players pop up in the story mode at one point was a bit of a surprise, but fun.

Totally lost on the new weapons and how they are allocated to slots. Lost on how to use the new Super, at first. Have to give it a go tomorrow or Friday.

Not nearly as bad as I thought the PC release date would be.

I was half-expecting Q1 2018.

Destiny 2 pre-load for those who ordered it on Xbox started Aug. 24. I checked late last week and my stuff is all pre-loaded on my Xbox One and waiting for me to play on Sept. 6.

Going to be a long wait.

Loving the game so far. A bit different than the first Destiny.

Got my first exotic engram after maybe 2-3 hours of play. Got it in a public event.

Interesting that there are only 13 achievements. I have my first one of those, too.

Do you lose it if you unequip it?

I haven't unencrypted the engram, yet, nevermind equipping it. It's still in my engram inventory. I got it just a few minutes before quitting Destiny 2 for the night.

Why would you lose it, if you unequip it? It should go to your inventory for that weapon-type shouldn't it? It's going to be a lousy 67 power, that's the only downfall. But I guess I can fuse into it or disassemble it.

Had fun last week with the Faction Rally. A shame FWC faction didn't win. I can't believe Dead Orbit won.

Like some people said, too many people that liked Dead Orbit colors of black and white. Personally I like the New Monarchy and FWC colors. But, for my Titan, I went for the faction that had the best weapons, FWC.

And, unfortunately, my hunter hasn't finished the campaign, so it wasn't ready for the Faction Rally.
