Thanks to a letter that was sent to GameStop employees, the beta will offer quite a bit of gameplay. Including a peak at four story chapters, four competitive multiplayer maps, a cooperative Strike, and some more of the world to explore.
Gamers everywhere know the hardships and the frustrations that go along with Betas. Destiny developer Bungie has no fear addressing this concern up front with fans.
We’d love to tell you that everything will go according to plan, but that wouldn’t be any fun. That wouldn’t teach us a thing. Even if the Beta is working perfectly, one of the alpha-geeks in the operations center is gonna kick it to see if it still works. Fortunately, we’ll be going to great lengths to keep you informed and keep you in the game.
Beta is going live on the 17th for PS3/PS4, then goes offline for maintenance on Monday, July 21, before returning on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on Wednesday, July 23 and finally ending on the 27th.
For those that have not pre-ordered the game already, keep checking the Destiny and Bungie pages for releases on “up for grabs” Beta codes. It’s sure to be worth it!
