Previously, a small preload file for the Destiny 2 beta was put up online. The preload file was only 400MB in size, however, which lead many people to speculate that a bigger patch was coming closer to the beta start date.
This has proven to be true today as a brand new patch for the Destiny 2 beta preload client has gone live. The new update is 12.6GB in size, making the total file size for the Destiny 2 beta client 13GB.
This information is based on the beta client on the PlayStation 4 - file size may vary slightly on other platforms.
If you've already pre-purchased Destiny 2, you'll now be able to jump into the action. Get the download started because the Destiny 2 beta will continue until July 23rd.
The beta originally started on the PlayStation 4 on July 18. The Xbox One beta started on July 19.
The PC beta for Destiny 2 will not go live until August. Currently, the exact Destiny 2 PC beta date hasn't been locked in.
For those interested in the beta, you'll be happy to know that the first story mission, Homecoming, will be available to all players on Xbox and PS4 until July 23. If you have PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold, you will also get access to a PVE-based Strike mode and the PVP Crucible game mode.
Destiny 2 will officially launch on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017. The PC version of Destiny 2 will get a launch on the Battle.net client on October 24, 2017.
