If you skipped the Destiny 2 beta, it means you missed out on playing competitive multiplayer. Luckily, a new trailer released today shows off what was available.

The Crucible is the competitive multiplayer competent in Destiny 2 and that is what you’re seeing through various action clips in the video.

Unlike Destiny 1, PvP consists of 4v4 teams instead of 6v6 and during the console beta, participants were able to try out four maps on Earth, Mercury, and Nessus.

The maps in the beta were Earth’s Midtown and Vostok on Felwinter Peak, Altar of Flame on Mercury, and Endless Vale on Nessus.

Instead of playing Control on Endless Vale in the Destiny 2 PC beta, players will instead try the mode out on the Javelin-4 map which is making its debut. It’s location is unknown as of press time.

Destiny 2 will release on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, and those wanting a look at the PC version before its October 24 release can participate in the upcoming beta.

Pre-order customers can dive into the Destiny 2 PC beta on August 28. It opens up for everyone else on August 29 and everyone has until August 31 to play it. Unless, of course, Bungie extends the testing period, which seems a safe beat going by its beta history.

Recommended PC specs for the beta are through here is you wanna have a look.

Speaking of betas, Activision said last week the Destiny 2 tester had more total players than the 2014 Destiny beta which brought in 4.6 million players.

Once the PC beta concludes, Bungie will likely announce some interesting figures.
