Destiny Beta to be Available in Early 2014


The whole world is waiting with baited breath for the release of Bungie’s newest game, Destiny.  We’ll have to wait a bit longer but there is some good news on the horizon.  Activision and Bungie have announced that the beta of Destiny will be available to those that pre-ordered the game on in early 2014.  The beta will include a sampling of some of the activities available in the full game.  The beta will be available to users on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4.

As a special treat and to celebrate this announcement, Bungie has released a new trailer for Destiny.  The trailer, called ‘The Moon’, features one of the destinations in the game and an alien race known as the Hive.

“We have no doubt Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.  “That means we’re putting all our creative support, and all our expertise in creating blockbuster franchises, into a colossal Destiny Beta that we believe will set a new bar for the next generation of games.  Fans have a lot to look forward to in 2014.”

“Destiny is the most ambitious game we have ever made, and it’s our chance to transform the way you experience a new Bungie universe,” said Harold Ryan, Bungie president.  “From day one Destiny has been an incredibly bold vision that Activision shares with Bungie.  Destiny is a massive universe that is populated by the players, and for that reason we need fans to get their hands on the game, fans all around the world.  We can’t wait!”

The beta codes for Destiny are only available while supplies last.  Those that would like one should check out this link to see which retailers worldwide are eligible.  When you’ve pre-ordered the game you should visit and follow the instructions posted to save your slot in the beta when it is released.  The nine digit code required for entry will be printed on the receipt, given on a flyer at time of purchase or sent to you through your email address.

Destiny will have you playing as a guardian of the last city on Earth.  Use the incredible power that you wield to battle against the enemies of humanity in an attempt to regain what was lost during the collapse of mankind’s Golden Age.  For more information on the game, be sure to check out the website, Facebook and Twitter pages.
