We're less than four weeks away from the Destiny 2 beta on PC, and Bungie revealed some new information earlier today regarding what fans can expect.

Bungie community manager Cozmo revealed in a blog post exactly what would make up the Destiny 2 beta on PC. There's one big difference from the console beta, content-wise, and it's the inclusion of a new Crucible map called Javelin-4.

The Countdown game mode will be returning on the map called Midtown, but the console beta's Endless Vale map is being swapped out for the new one, which has never been seen before. Also returning is the Homecoming story mission and the Inverted Spire Strike.

Cozmo also outlined that Bungie has three specific goals for the PC beta—to test the functionality for Destiny 2 on a new platform, to give PC players their first taste of Destiny 2 in action, and to leave a world of surprises in store for the final version of the game.

"It must be said, once again: This is a test," the blog post reads. "The PC is a platform we’ve never shipped Destiny on, so there will be evidence of ongoing construction here and there. Even if you played in the console beta, you’d be a priceless test resource for us. Not only will you have a chance to appreciate the differences, you’ll be doing your part to ready us for launch."

Early access for the beta begins on Aug. 28, with the open beta beginning on Aug. 29. The beta ends on Aug. 31, before the game's full release on the PC platform on Oct. 24.
