Virgin Media is allowing early access to Destiny 2

Virgin Media is joining forces with Activision and Bungie to run a Beta test of upcoming title Destiny 2 for Vivid Gamer customers utilising its ‘full-force fibre network’ in an event at a secret location in the UK.

The event called ‘Virgin Fibre x Destiny 2: The Beta Experience’ will be accessible to Vivid customers, who can enter for tickets here. It will take place 17 and 18 July.

Kerris Bright, chief marketing officer at Virgin Media, said: “Whether playing through the incredible Destiny 2 campaign alone, playing with friends or making new ones, the best broadband makes for the best gameplay. Teaming up with Activision and Bungie means our Vivid Gamer customers get even more from us, powered by our ultrafast network.”

The Destiny 2 Beta will be playable on the PlayStation 4 platform.
