Nearly 6.5 million games played in the Destiny Alpha

2 min read


Destiny’s recent Alpha convinced me I’d love a shooter MMO that I’ve had little to no interest in up until now. It seems I’m not the only one enamoured by the Alpha; people played a heck of a lot of Destiny during the short time that the alpha was live. 6.46 million player games of the thing, to be exact.

In a weekend update, Bungie released a bunch of stats on how much people have done in the game.

Here’s the Post Game Carnage Report a small, intimate group of players were able to rack up in the First Look Alpha in just a few days’ time:

  • 149,522,313 Primary Weapon Kills
  • 21,782,610 Secondary Weapon Kills
  • 4,002,737 Heavy Weapon Kills
  • 21,687,298 Super Ability Kills
  • 2,819,211 Orbs of Light Gathered
  • 6,850,773 Control Points Captured in the Crucible
  • 1,195 Deathless Medals awarded in the Crucible
  • 4,356 Splatters with the Sparrow
  • 667,966 Public Events Joined
  • 60,491,944 Fallen Dregs Dispatched with Extreme Prejudice
  • Too many to count: Guardians served in Dance Parties

In total, 6,461,871 Player Games were played.

If I’d known that Bungie was tracking how much we danced, I’d probably have danced even more. I had far more fun with the Destiny Alpha than I ever imagined I would have, and I’m rather keen to give it another go when the Beta kicks off later next month.

Destiny is coming in September for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. A Pc version has not been announced, but it would a perfect fit, and I’d be rather surprised if it ended up not happening. The PlayStation versions of the game will feature a significant chunk of extra content that won’t be available on other platforms until next year at the earliest.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
