Destiny Open Beta


#1

Hey Everyone !!!

Destiny is open beta this weekend meaning anyone can join :smiley:

Is anyone else going to be playing and which platforms will you be using?

I’m using my PS4 and will happily add/join up with other members should anyone want to cruise around in a fireteam. (Probably pm me gamer tags might be easier)

I’ve been playing since Wednesday and been having an incredible time, it’s such a blast.

If there are any Xbox One players out there let me know and we’ll try and get a few games of multiplayer in at some point before it ends!

Is it on pc? And is it free or is it subscription-based? It did look interesting when Hat Films played it… and I’ve been hearing lots of positive things about it.


#4

Its not on PC unfortunately and there seems to be no plans to release on PC. (or at least no immediate plans).
Its currently available for PS3, PS4, XBox 1 and XBox 360
Its not subscription based, but it will require Xbox Live or Playstation Plus to play.

Edit:
Its been a lot of fun, even with the level cap. I’m quite enjoying it and looking forward to the full release in september.

Amlin is correct, there are no immediate plans

Bungie senior writer and community head Eric Osborne

“We haven’t said yes, and we haven’t said no,” Osborne said. “The more platforms we take on, the more work it ultimately becomes, and what we don’t want is to compromise the core experience on any platforms. We have a lot of people who play on PCs. We have a lot of appetite to build that experience. We haven’t announced it yet, but we’re looking forward to talking more about that kind of stuff in the future.”

Despite having an XBOX One, I’m going to give this a miss. Not because it doesn’t interest me, the opposite in fact, but when it comes to FPS I need a mouse and keyboard. I have a nasty habit of shooting everything but my target when using a controller :frowning:

practice makes perfect :wink:


#7

Unfortunately I have neither Xbox nor Playstation, so I guess I’ll have to forego it, at least until they do release it for pc, if and when they do.


#8

well that is unfortunate :frowning:
I hope they do eventually release it on PC.


#9

Well, darn! I wish I had seen this sooner, perhaps we could have met up to do some Strikes!

Unfortunately, I doubt we would be on the same server anyway, considering the continental difference. I did manage to get a little bit of playtime in with all of the classes though, and I think it’s fair to say that Warlock is my favorite at this point in time, with Titan giving it a run for its money.


#10

ah well we can meet up online in September maybe


#11

Yes, that would be most excellent.

If anyone wants to go ahead and add me for any of the console games coming up, then here’s my gamertag:
