In a blog post, the studio said the test “will serve as a short, sweet, and important moment in the development of this feature”.
Participants who complete three strikes in the cross-play playlist will earn the unique ‘Stars Crossed’ emblem pictured below.
Bungie said the beta won’t let players form a fireteam or send invites to friends.
The studio also reiterated that its “current goal” is for cross-play to launch in Season 15, which is expected to begin on August 24.
“We’ll be doing some internal rollouts and alpha tests in Season 14 to prepare for a widespread launch this fall,” Destiny 2 assistant game director Joe Blackburn confirmed in February, alongside an announcement that the title’s The Witch Queen expansion had been delayed from this year to early 2022.
“With Crossplay, you’ll be able to play with all your friends no matter what platform you call home. And don’t worry, we won’t be matching console and PC players together in the Crucible unless PC players specifically invite their console friends to play with them in the PC Crucible pools.”
Destiny 2 cross-play was accidently made available earlier this month alongside the launch of Season 14, Season of the Splicer, but it was disabled after a few days.
