Destiny Beta Begins Early Next Year


Before Destiny launches next spring, Activision and Bungie will be hosting an invite-only beta test for the shared world shooter early in 2014. The beta will encompass all platforms, including PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

To get an invite, you have to pre-order the game and enter the code provided by your chosen retailer at the time of reservation (it’ll be printed on the receipt or sent via email) at the Destiny Code Redemption Portal. If you already pre-ordered the game, you should be receiving an email with a beta invite from your chosen retailer.

Need a reason to pre-order beyond the perk of a beta invite? Check out the new gameplay trailer and screenshots provided with today’s beta news. I haven’t been particularly keen on this game up to now, but damn, it sure looks like a blast. The more I see it in action, the more impressed and excited I get.
