Enter now to play Destiny this weekend

Thanks to the awesome people of Megarom, we can cordially invite you to try to join us to play Destiny this weekend. But there are only 50 slots, so you need to enter now. Also, more cool news about Destiny inside.

Go on over to this page to check out Megarom’s cool offering – cool because I’m sure it will include beer if Gavin has anything to say about it. You can join us for all the pew pew pew as well as seeing community members and fellow gamers. All you need to do is go fill in the form over here, and you could be playing the Beta with us on Saturday. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, so register now.

As for some new Destiny news, in an email to GameStop employees, we learn that there will be

four story chapters, four competitive multiplayer maps, a cooperative Strike and a huge world to explore with your own unique Guardian.

Also posted to Reddit, it appears that Xbox One versions of the demo will weigh in at 12.63GB – here’s hoping that they let you pre-load the demo. That’s quite hefty and gives me hope that the Beta will also be a rather large piece of the game to explore.

Over on the Bungie blog, they remind excited gamers that this is, indeed, a Beta:

The Destiny Beta is a test. Make no mistake. This isn’t some circus stunt. This is science – and you’re the lab rat.

[…]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.

This is the pure truth – a Beta is about testing the game and finding all the bugs and problems possible so that when the game actually launches it does so without any issues. We are all willing test subjects, mice that are willingly signing up to have lipstick smeared all over them. And I think I’m going to enjoy it. Just don’t smear lipstick on us on Saturday, I will be less than amused.

If you haven’t already, it’s a good time to pre-order your copy of the game so that you can jump into the Beta, and don’t forget to register to play the Beta with us on Saturday.

    And here I thought this is only Beta keys, nope it’s a real life event and you require your own Beta key and need to live in Joburg…. ok then, no thanx.

    Hey has anyone who pre ordered on PS4 received their beta codes yet? I am starting to get worried over here, it seems we should have gotten it by now. Even on twitter Bungie said we should have them. But Playstation SA’s told me that I need to phone part serve to take it up with them… but that just sounds wrong to me!!!

      You can only get a beta key on pre-order through BT-Games

        But on the PS4 it says pre order to get in on the beta???? I will phone part serve, but haven’t had too many good dealings with them as yet!!! And the Beta is lying in my downloads separate from the game, just worried it won’t download and open on Thursday if I don’t have a beta key….

          Don’t worry Beauty at part serve just told me that I would get a key before or on Thursday…. I feel so relieved now…. NOT!!!!! She had me on hold for 6 minutes and she sounds so far from certain she might as well have said that I will have a house on the moon by the end of 2014!!! Might just cancel it and go and pre order from BT Games, that is what I get for trying to go digital!! Yes it is 2014, but this is still Africa!!

    OK cool just found a post on Bungie.net that says that if you ordered trough PS4 then you will be in the Beta, you will be able to download it on the 17th. There won’t be any beta keys for us, the download will just be ready or you will get a message on your PS4….
    Just if anyone else is freaking out like me!!

        I’ve really had to do some digging to get to the bottom of it!! The playstation SA twiiter handle couldn’t help and the lady at Part serve was just unhelpful and that is putting it mildly!!!

        They better not be wrong or I am going to be one very unhappy person come Thursday night!!
