Plus, nearly seven minutes of leaked alpha gameplay footage.

The Destiny beta, which is set to kick off in July, will launch first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. That we know. What we’ve learned today, via a new advertisement appearing on GamesRadar, is that the early beta will run for four days.


Destiny is set to appear at Sony’s E3 press conference once again on Monday. The full game is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on September 9.

Nearly seven minutes worth of alpha footage also leaked this morning. Catch that below. In case it’s taken down, you can find download links here.

Thanks, DualShockers.

    I wonder if this game will live up to the hype.

      Titanfall and Watch Dogs didn’t, I don’t see why this will be different, not that they are bad, but they aren’t the second coming of innovation that they promised.

      • Zackasaur

        Destiny hasn’t really promised to be the second coming of innovation. It has promised to be really good.

        Watch Dogs sort of walked the line a little, but it mostly just promised to innovate with hacking.

        Titanfall definitely promised to be something far more than what it was. lol

  • 武神水樹

    Very cool

    I wonder i I’ll be able to configure the game for lefties

    • Zackasaur

      Huh…. How many games really do that? It seems pretty rare.

      • 武神水樹

        Well seeing how big the game is would be an oversight not to include it

        Call of Duty has it and I think Battlefield too

        • Zackasaur

          Ah, okay! Sorry, I’m a bit ignorant as a righty.

          Kind of like politics, but with hands~

  • shogunknight

    4 days?

    • EX+

      Hilarious, isn’t it?

    • 武神水樹

      And? PS4 gets 4 days of extra playtime.

  • True Gamer

    is this a public beta or the beta for those who preordered the game?

    • 武神水樹

      Pre-ordered only

      • True Gamer

        oh ok

  • Elvick

    Game looks awesome.

    • Zackasaur


  • 武神水樹

    Switched my pre-order from Amazon to Gamestop since they’re the only ones doing a bonus.

    I know for a fact I’ll get pissed when I see people passing me by with the sparrow, can’t beat em join em

  • michel

    Excellent tech design…
    Too bad it’s an FPS…

    • Zackasaur

      That’s what these devs do. It’s their skillset. c:

  • Zero

    Avoiding the video. I’ll just wait and play the beta myself.

    • 武神水樹

      Wasn’t spoilerish but it showed that the warlock can handle their own

      I’m not sure yet but will probably play a juggernaut PUNCH

  • Anime10121

    Depends on how good this is whether I’ll bite (if its anything like Bungie’s Halo series tho, it’ll be hard for it NOT to be good :D)….

    Question though, since this is online multiplayer only, does it have “extra costs” or is it free outside of paying for PS plus?

    • pixxxelz

      Its free, they confirmed this a while ago

      • Anime10121

        Cool thanks, I thought so, just couldnt remember :P

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    Oh god, I hope we don’t get another half hour of another E3 dedicated to Halolands Sony.

  • Kurisu Makise

    The “Feel” of a third party exclusive. Activision laughing all the way to the bank…

    • 武神水樹

      Game is pretty expensive, may take awhile for that
