Destiny is a massive, online multiplayer shooting experience that might just change the way we see the FPS genre. It looks like it will be a whole bunch of fun, and really varied. Of course, everyone wants to give it a try and see if it’s all it’s cracked up to be. Don’t worry, you can play it soon.
Here is the official announcement via twitter:

So, E3 we’ll get some announcements and specifics, but at least we know to book out July for some beta pew pew action. Bungie has already assured gamers that the Beta will be a huge slice of content – it will offer plenty of kit and upgrades, as well as opportunities to engage in competitive multiplayer and strikes. If you want to be sure of grabbing Beta access, you’ll need to pre-order the game.
We keep debating if we can call Destiny an MMO. Bungie insists that it’s not an MMO. But it’s going to be huge, possibly even massive, and multiplayer, and online. Does that mean we should expect something like Borderlands with instanced multiplayer events? How open world is it, and is it a big enough game for all those people? I suppose we’ll just have to wait for our hands-on time with the game at E3, but Bungie has said that we have probably seen less than 10% of the game thus far. Wow – that’s a ton more content that’s waiting to be seen! I can’t wait to go Total Recall on the game and spend a ton of time checking out Mars, and its unusual inhabitants. Extra-boobed guardian, anyone?
