Want to play the Destiny Beta? Enter to win access codes now

Read our full Destiny review.

Want to play the Destiny beta but didn’t pre-order it to get a code? Not to worry! We’ve got a whole mess of codes to give away!

Destiny isn’t out until September 9, but the PlayStation beta kicks off on July 17 and the Xbox beta on July 23. The tests are running on both versions of each console, and the codes you stand to win here work with any of them. You’ll need to sign up for an account on Bungie.net and enter the code in there, and that’s when you pick which console you want to play on. Simple.

Bungie’s first post-Halo effort has shown a lot of promise in what we’ve seen so far. It feels functionally similar in some ways to Master Chief’s adventures, with a fast pace to the action and hordes of aliens to blast, but all of it plays out against an online-connected universe that’s filled with other players. Each code, once redeemed on Bungie.net, gets you three download codes in all so you can get two friends in on the action in the game’s three-person Squads. Note that all players need to be running on the same console in order to play together.
