During this beta, the development team will be studying data and testing the upcoming cross-play system for Destiny 2.

The cross-play beta will only be limited to this matchmade playlist and players will be restricted from sending invites or making fireteams across different platforms. Players who achieve three strikes in the Vanguard Strikes Cross-Play Beta playlist will get a Stars Crossed emblem as a reward.
