If you somehow missed out on all the code giveaways and couldn’t bring yourself to preorder the game, you’re in luck — the Destiny beta is now open to anyone with a active subscription on Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus as of 4pm PDT on Thursday. Bungie is basically conducting a stress test over the weekend by allowing everyone to join in the beta, so don’t be surprised if there are some issues on Friday night after everyone gets off work. The beta was already taken offline for an extended period of time earlier in the week for maintenance though, so hopefully the servers are prepared for a massive influx of Guardians.
In order to download the beta, just head to the store on your PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One and search for Destiny Beta. The beta will close for good at end of the day on Sunday, so be sure to get as much time in as you want before then.
Not around a console this weekend? Don’t worry, Destiny will launch on all four consoles on September 9th, so you won’t have to wait long for the retail release. Expect a full review on BGR early next month.
