Want to take part in the Destiny 2 crossplay beta this week? You’re in luck. Bungie is set to roll out the much-anticipated feature starting from tomorrow, 25 May 2021. After the weekly reset takes place tomorrow evening, users can then launch a special Vanguard Strike crossplay beta playlist that will merge PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Stadia users into one server while they participate in Strikes together.
Users won’t notice much but if you are matchmaking for this Destiny 2 crossplay playlist then the people with you won’t be from your platform of choice. Bungie says that anyone across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Stadia can participate in the Destiny 2 cross-play beta. However, users won’t be able to form fireteams or add friends to the activity.
Those who play at least three strikes in the Vanguard Crossplay Strike Playlist will earn a fancy Stars Crossed emblem. The emblem will commemorate the Destiny 2 crossplay beta event so users will know you did your part to help test out the activity. Unfortunately, the event is not running for long either. As most Destiny 2 events usually last a week, this crossplay beta is only up from 25 – 27 May.
It is unclear whether or not Bungie will host other Destiny 2 crossplay events in the future. The feature is set to go live in August so perhaps we will see other betas run before that. The beta also comes as no surprise after the feature went live earlier this month by mistake.
From May 25 through May 27, a unique Vanguard Strikes Cross Play Beta playlist will be available to all players in Destiny 2. You’ll be matchmade with Guardians playing on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam and Stadia. As you fight through the enemy waves of Darkness, our teams will be scouring data and preforming a multitude of actions to test the integrity of our upcoming Cross Play system.
