Destiny has the potential to be 'huge' when it comes out next year. Bungie's take on MMOFPS will offer a unique experience to players who pick up the game. But for a massively online-centered game, a beta test will be in order to make sure that not only are all bugs, glitches and kinks removed, but also that it shines its brightest on launch day. If you are interested in playing it first, then here is how you can join.
If you pre-order at "participating retailers," you will obtain early access to the Destiny beta. What will the beta include? Players will be able to get a "diverse sampling of major activities," of which were not detailed. The beta will kick off in early 2014 on Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, and PS4.
"We have no doubt Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property," Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said. "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."
So are you ready for the beta? If you are, then let me know in the comments. If not, check out this new trailer to prepare you for the awesomeness that awaits:
