Read our full Destiny review.
The Destiny beta launches in early 2014, but Bungie is giving you a chance to get yourself set this week. A morning tweet from the developer reads: “You might want to keep checking back in with us this week; we’ll be posting #Destiny Beta codes randomly each day.” Pretty straightforward, don’t you think? We’re checking with Activision to find out exactly how these codes will work, since Destiny is presumably still on track for the 2014 beta launch. It’ll probably work much like it does for those with beta codes obtained from a pre-order; check this FAQ for more details.
For those who haven’t been keeping track, Destiny is Bungie’s first post-Halo effort. It’s a first-person shooter set in an all-new sci-fi universe, and it’s got a focus on cooperative play and an approach to character progression that wouldn’t be out of place in a massively multiplayer role-playing game. The game had a great showing at E3 2013, and Ryan was a big fan of what he saw in the pre-E3 preview madness.
There’s no hard release date yet for Destiny, but it will be coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2014. If you don’t manage to nab a beta code this week, you can also get one by putting in a pre-order at GameStop, Best Buy, Walmart, or Amazon.
