The beta for Bungie’s highly anticipated “Destiny” will go live for Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 on July 17th for those who’ve pre-ordered the game. Don’f fret Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners, as the beta will go live for all platforms on July 23rd and end on July 27th.
For anyone that was not fortunate enough to play the alpha during E3, now is your chance to get a taste of one of the most anticipated games of the year. I played the alpha in June and the game looks and plays fantastic. The game blends the best elements of World of Warcraft, Halo, and Borderlands together in a way that only Bungie can. And if that’s not enough to boost your confidence in the game, Destiny publisher Activision has stated that they’re committing half a billion dollars to the overall production of the game. While it’s a safe bet that not all of that is development cost (I’d wager at least half is going to be marketing and promotion), that’s still a sizeable amount of resources that Activision has put behind Destiny. With those resources and Bungie’s pedigree, this game is poised to do big things.
