Destiny Beta Free for PS+ and XBL Gold

The Beta has been eye-opening so far. We’ve watched the world of Destiny come to life. Guardians from every platform have arrived at the Tower from their battles in the wild. We have watched your adventures with great interest, and listened to your feedback. Your missions have provided us with volumes of discoveries we can use to prepare for the launch of Destiny in September.

Our work is not done. There is more we can learn. To make this happen, we need more Guardians to play. This is, above all else, a test.

Today, at 4:00 PM PDT, we’re opening the Destiny Beta to anyone who wants to create a character and walk in their boots. There are, of course, some requirements. You’ll need to have a compatible console equipped with PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold. You’ll need to be brave.

Help us deliver the game you deserve. Before we shut this party down, we’ll welcome everyone who wants a preview of this brave new world. If you have yet to play Destiny, look for offers to download the Beta directly from your console later on this afternoon.

If you have played the Beta, please prepare for new arrivals. We know you won’t go easy on them in the Crucible. Show no mercy.

Needs moving to deals. Not free as you need Live or PS+.

Was on the fence about getting it so didn't pre order it. Might have a look now. Cheers.

Iron Banner is back Friday/Saturday aswell

If nothing else, this should hopefully help to cut down on the torrent of new threads asking for keys!

sweet, been trying to get a code. Heat from me

So, what's the UK time for this rolling out? Interested in giving this a go on the 360

True enough, though the distinction's only really relevant for PS3 given that you need Xbox Live Gold/PS Plus for online play on the other three systems.

Indeed - see my post immediately above yours.

So they tell people to pre order it to get the beta, but then make it open to everyone. I think those who pre-ordered it will not be happy with this news.

Cheers matey - have some heat. Downloading beta now.

Well thats annoying to those who preordered the game. Luckily I cancelled

the people who bought a load of codes off me on ebay probably wont be too happy either..

It's not that great anyway. It's fun yeah sure but it's just a very serious borderlands.

I like it but it didn't blow me away.

This is an 8 hour download to utter disappointment. A very poor game.

8hrs... Was about 20-25mins down on my BT Infinity

And this is the Beta build of the game so you cant judge it too harshly!

Nice one but 5.14gb it's going to take fever to download

Funny, it took me 15 minutes to download, also the game is great fun, get some friends and join a fireteam it's not meant for loners.

Really!? On PS3 its 5.5GB, I downloaded it in an hour, it's actually pretty decent after rank 6.

I thought it was really good TBH, best game on the next gen consoles for me so far and it's only a Beta. Only had a quick go on the 6v6 multi player part of it and it was ok nothing special, really enjoyed the story part of the game though and the hit detection is a joy after playing BF4. ( I do like BF4 but there hit detection is awful sometimes).

Fireteam is most probably the best thing about the game, but that is seriously limited, as the maps are quite small.

The game in general is very repetitive imo

XB1 version is almost 13gb so look on the bright side lol.

I was on the PS3 and typed Destiny Beta

Had the quickest of goes.

I know it's a Beta but you would expect the graphical quality to be similar to release at this late stage, and, frankly it's nothing special visuals wise.

Gameplay seems a bit detached. Can definitely feel the Halo roots in it though.

Hopefully it'll get better the further I get into it.

It's only a Beta version, which generally are quite limited. Personally I was very impressed with what I saw and played. Looking forward to the full release even more now

Enjoying the beta, having a blast with several friends. Can't wait to see how big the actual game is, I'm hoping there is a lot of content there like Borderlands.

I'd compare it more to Mass Effect 2 than Borderlands. Graphics don't seem that next-gen to me either, however I am enjoying playing it which is the main thing

The first time I played it I basically just thought it's rip off Halo. I'm not a Halo fan at all. Then the more I play the more elements of games like Borderlands and Mass Effect I see. It's quite a fun game. Glad I played the Beta as the Alpha made me massively dislike it.

Opinions are like nipples, everybody has one.

Wasn't sure how good this was going to be, but I got hold of a BETA key (free) a few days ago, and I loved it. Borderlands-meets-COD-meets-Halo-meets-Mass Effect. I would have to say that this is the only game on the XBone that has caught my interest. Bought the console day one, and the line-up has been disappointing so far. Didn't even think much of Titanfall...of course, it's all very much a personal preference thing. Some people might hate the style of this game, but I loved it. Enough RPG elements to keep it interesting, enough action to ensure it's not too "RPG", if you know what I mean. Will definitely be buying.
