Destiny 2 is finally here in the form of an explosive open beta, which now available on Xbox and PS4. If you’ve pre-ordered the game you can jump into the beta now, otherwise you’ll have to wait until 3am AEST, or alternatively use this trick to download it early without pre-ordering on PS4.

From what we can tell about the experience, it’s much of the same with some subtle as well as a number of potent changes that mix things up a bit.

In this guide we’ll take a look at the Warlock class, specifically the Dawnblade subclass. Throw in some new Super Abilities as well and it’s clear to see just how new and refined the Destiny 2 experience is.
