If you managed to snag a physical copy of the game ahead of its 6th September street date, you can play it now - even in the UK.

Reports indicate some UK shops have already delivered Bungie's shared-world shooter to eager fans, thus breaking the worldwide street date for Destiny 2. Eurogamer reader Ben Lacki got in touch to say his copy, bought from ShopTo, had arrived and sent over the photo above.

People are streaming the game now on Twitch, although those streams are best avoided if you want to stay spoiler free.

Unfortunately, if you bought a digital copy of the game, you'll have to wait until midnight tonight to play - that's when Destiny 2 unlocks in the UK.

Bungie had told fans to expect Destiny 2 to go live at midnight local time across the world. So, digital copies bought in New Zealand, for example, have unlocked and are playable. Digital owners, who have already expressed their frustration at physical owners being able to jump into the game, have to wait until midnight wherever they are in the world.
