Destiny 2 improves upon its predecessor in many ways. In short, it offers a more satisfying, shared-world experience. Building upon that, the game's developer Bungie is today launching the Guided Games beta. The feature essentially delivers the matchmaking system for high-level activities that the first title lacked. Players may have noticed the longer-than-usual server maintenance downtime today, which brought with it a a massive patch. Download it and you'll get Guided Games.

Announced back in May, the new mode allows clan members (known here as "guides") to invite one or two players (dubbed "seekers") to join them for raids and Nightfall missions. Seekers can scroll through the available teams, before picking the one that suits them best. The in-game menu tells you how long a mission will last and that voice chat is required. In the beta, at least, seekers will require a Nightfall ticket to participate. The postmaster should have some ready and waiting for you. How you will come by more remains to be seen. Guides, on the other hand, can queue up without restrictions.

Bungie has already laid out the first-month activities it has planned for players. And, Guided Games is dropping just in time for today's Leviathan raid.
