Destiny Beta will help you invest in your character

Destiny character creation

I honestly can’t believe how much hype is circling this Destiny Beta – people seem as excited for it as they would be for a major game launch. It’s all quite befuddling to me, but I’m also jumping on the hype train; why not give this cool game a whirl ahead of time just to see how cool it will be at launch? This new trailer says why it will be worth your time.

I seriously suspect that they filmed this trailer months ago when they filmed this video – doesn’t it feel really familiar? It’s as if they filmed everything and then chopped and edited so that they could feed it to us piecemeal. Anyway, here is the video:

Bungie has built plenty of tech just for Destiny to support the game – here’s hoping that it will be strong enough to prevent launch issues. Of course, that’s why we get a Beta, so that tons of people can flood their servers and stress test their systems. But what do we get to do while stress testing? There will be story elements, competitive gameplay as well as cooperative gameplay for everyone to sink their teeth into during the Beta. The goal is to get invested in your character, your guardian – build and grow and figure out how you like to play as you upgrade every aspect.

I’m very keen to jump in and see what the game has to offer. Geoff thoroughly enjoyed his time in the Alpha, and Betas should (theoretically) be even better. I’m hoping to get some quality time with it this weekend, mostly so I can shoot everyone in the face as a “guardian”. I honestly have no idea what I’m talking about; I think I’m almost the only one in the crew who hasn’t had any hands on time with the game, so I’m just really excited to finally see what they’ve all been raving about.

            There more chance of Trevor admitting that this game makes him want to buy a console than that happening πŸ˜‰ OvG seems dead against anything that is online only as he has no internet and is a cheap ass!

          I felt your pain on Monday night. 9 revives in a single mission in Warframe. Most I’d ever performed before that in a mission was 3 – and that was on nightmare mode, never mind regular.

    I’m there like a bear.

    Gotta love LTE, I downloaded the 12gig in a single evening.

    Does anyone who played the alpha have any class choice advice?

    I hear Warlock > Titan > Hunter, although that could all be changed in this beta. I like the idea of the hunter, but I’m wondering, given the holy trinity, if everyone and their dog will be playing the same class.

    Any suggestions? Also please feel free to hook me up on PS4, PSN ID: Sageville

      I played the Alpha to death!! So much so that @hammersteyn:disqus messaged me the whole time to complaint that he didn’t get in to the Alpha!!

      I played with the Hunter, and it was awesome!! But the Titan class does feel stronger, in the Death matches they really destroyed the rest!! The Warlock and Hunter felt very even to me, all about the timing and accuracy of your shots. The Titan just seemed to kill you with 5 bullets where you would finish a mag in him and nothing happens!!

      I’ll add you just now, my PSN ID is CasterTroy03

    My download is done, and I am ready!! Even downloaded the companion app….

    @disqus_3ihQj32EWp:disqus there are so much hype because the Alpha was excellent!! The word of mouth from that alone got the Hype Train into 6th gear on a 5 gear gearbox!!
