If you’ve followed the reveal of the single player campaign of Destiny 2, you know that our beloved Tower is no more. In Destiny 2 it will be replaced by a brand new social space called “the Farm,” as the guardians hide from sight to prepare their counter-offensive.
Today Bungie made the Farm available for a single hour in the Destiny 2 beta, and since it will be gone very soon, you can find a video below, for the posterity, courtesy of YouTube usersCrispy Chris, Lime Green, Darcararsaroo and Ethan Games.
As the name suggests, the area definitely looks a lot more rural, and like its predecessor, it comes with its hazards. Looks like Guardians don’t like to swim just as much as they despised plummeting down from the heights of the tower. Jumping into the water will kill you.
Another callback to the old Tower is the fact that you can play soccer/football, but this time there is an actual derelict pitch complete with small goals.
If the location looks a bit empty, that’s because the vendors aren’t implemented in the beta, but of course they’ll be present when the game will officially launch. Speaking of population, the Farm will house 26 players in the same instance, compared to the 16 supported by the Tower.
The environment is quite nice, complete with barns and a radar tower with its large dome. There are plenty of traversal opportunities, with like climbing the buildings and walking on suspended cables. It definitely looks like a nice space to explore.

Destiny 2 will release on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th, and on PC on October 24th.
