Xbox Platforms Get DESTINY Beta in Late July
By Armi Dimaranan on June 26, 2014
Xbox players rejoice! A beta for Bungie’s highly anticipated shooter Destiny is coming to Microsoft systems. The downside is, we don’t get an exact date.
It’s been known that the Destiny beta will land on Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 platforms on July 17 as part of their “exclusively first” deal, but gamers were unsure if the game’s beta would make its way to Xbox systems.
Thanks to the keen observation of VideoGamer, they’ve spotted a trailer on the Xbox One dashboard that reveals the beta will arrive in “late July.” Whether that means a week after the PlayStation betas begin or even two weeks later on July 31st is still up in the air. The full game releases in September so I can’t imagine it releasing much later.
There’s not much we know about what gamers will get to do in the beta or how long it’ll last or even if some progress will make its way to the full release, but we have high hopes for the title as our very own Malik Forte detailed during his hands-on time with the game during E3.
Destiny launches September 9 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4.
