In an underground bunker at a top-secret London location, lucky Virgin Media customers, competition winners and a few famous faces (including Ali A and Love Island's Dom and Jess) took on the Red Legion in an exclusive early hands-on experience of the Destiny 2 Beta ahead of the worldwide launch. Featuring multiple game modes including campaign, co-operative and competitive game play, our chosen Guardians gathered under the Traveler, joined their fireteams and blasted their way through Strikes and Crucibles, with plenty of Destiny 2-themed surprises on the way!
Don't worry if you missed out, as our cameras were there to capture everything that went down.
1. VIVID customers made history
Utilising Virgin Media's full-force fibre, VIVID customers were among the first in the world to see Destiny 2 in all it's glory, courtesy of PlayStation®4, including PS4™ Pro where they could enjoy playing in stunning 4k resolution.
Plus they got some sweet loot too with some exclusive goody bags:
