When Season 14 of Destiny 2: Season of the Symbiote released earlier this month, it added all kinds of new content to Bungie’s looter and shooter game. However, not all of the new content added with Destiny 2 season 14 was added on purpose, and Bungie accidentally implemented cross-play with the big update. Bungie quickly disabled Destiny 2’s crossover play shortly after it was discovered by fans, but now it looks like crossover play will be returning to the game, and this time on purpose.
Bungie has confirmed plans for a Destiny 2 crossplay beta, which will go live in-game next week. The Destiny 2 Crossplay Beta will begin on Tuesday, May 25, and will run through Thursday, May 27, giving Destiny 2 fans on all platforms the opportunity to try out the feature. Anyone interested in testing Destiny 2’s future cross-play capabilities will be able to do so, as no registration is required and the beta is completely open to all players.
When the Destiny 2 crossplay beta goes live next week, players will be able to take on Vanguard Strikes against players from other platforms. It will not be possible to form fire teams or send game invites to friends while the Destiny 2 crossplay beta is live, but those who manage to complete at least three Vanguard Strikes will be rewarded for their efforts in the form of a Star emblem. Crossed.
The Destiny 2 cross-play beta will not allow Guardians to form fire teams because the main goal is to test how cross-game matchmaking works. If players could invite their friends to a game, it would defeat the purpose of the test. However, the ability to add players from other platforms to the Destiny 2 squad should be available sometime later this year.
According to Bungie, the plan is for Destiny 2’s crossover play to go live with season 15. Whether or not that actually happens remains to be seen, as there is always the possibility that some unforeseen glitches will cause hiccups that force a delay in the feature. . The end date for Destiny 2 season 14 is August 24, which means that season 15 will begin around the same time, so it seems like fans can expect crossover play to be added near the end of the summer. .
Of course, Destiny 2 will add a lot more content with Season 15 in addition to crossover play, although details on what it has in store will have to wait. For now, fans can continue to play through Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer activities as they try to save the Land from Endless Night.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
