Today is Bungie day and that can only mean one thing, Destiny info! Bungie just unveiled their trailer for the upcoming Destiny Beta. The beta will begin on July 17th for PlayStation users and they’ve finally announced that the beta will become available for Xbox platforms on July 23rd.
The beta will be treated like a full product launch so have fun exploring everything that the beta has to offer from character creation, story missions, cooperative strikes, competitive Crucible matches, social engagements, and even dance battles.
In order to get access to the beta you must pre-order from participating retailers. If for some reason you haven’t already go to www.destinythegame.com/wheretobuy to find participating retailers in your area for your platform of choice.
On Bungie’s blog they announced that there will be beta maintenance from July 21st-22nd prior to Xbox platform access. So plan accordingly!
Also it appears that on July 26th Bungie is asking for us to push the population limits and on that day they will “also provide a special reward to those of you who make an appearance in the Tower… or in the frontiers beyond its walls.”
Update: “Play the Destiny Beta on Saturday, July 26th, beginning at 8pm PDT, to earn an exclusive emblem for the retail version of Destiny. We’ll also be delivering some fun and unexpected surprises throughout the Beta!”
There are conflicting reports for the time (2pm or 8pm) on July 26th when you can earn the exclusive emblem.
On July 27th at 11:59pm PDT the beta will unfortunately come to an end.
On July 10th Bungie.net will received a “serious augmentation with new features and services that will help you deal yourself in to the action that awaits us all” so be on the look out for those!
Happy Bungie Day everyone.
