    Do you get to keep Destiny Beta Character?

    or does it get wiped?

    No confirmation, but I'll expect them to be wiped until they confirm otherwise.

    Standard procedure is to wipe all player data after a beta.. Everyone gets a clean slate when the game goes gold.

    It would be nice for me since I'm getting beta, but it wouldn't be fair to the people who didn't

    It happens from time to time, but it is a rare occurrence. I wouldn't expect it to.

    Beta players are supposed to get "something" to signify we were in beta. Maybe an exclusive shader or insignia is my guess

    They definitely wipe the characters as I remember reading them saying so. I think it was on twitter they confirmed a delete after both alpha and beta.

    That's too bad. Hope we get some sort of in-game reward to keep when game releases to differentiate beta participants from the others

    There can be times where there are even major reworks of things in Beta stages that can force a wipe. I'm already in that stage and we've had dozens of wipes to fix some issues.

    Dude, I was the same way for a while until recently. I finally deleted it a week ago. Sucks we will have to start all over again when the game officially releases. All that work down the drain. Damn you Bungie!!! Nah, Im kidding. Lol

    I haven't removed the Alpha in case the Alpha client is updated for the Beta.

    This is the main reason why I will only be playing a couple hours of the beta - at most. No need to waste my time leveling one character. Will play with a few classes and see what works best.

    I recall them saying Alpha wouldnt carry over, but dont recall any mention about beta. Hope they do. I wont feel so bad about me dumping in all the hours I plan to be on if it isnt for naught.

    Apologies. You are correct. Here's the tweet I was thinking of

    Alpha characters will not survive the migration to Beta. Tonight's your chance to take that last portrait. Be brave. Thank them for playing.

    Ehh happens to the best of us.

    I kind of have a hunch that they may honestly. Otherwise whats the point of everyone meeting up at the tower on the 26th to receive beta insignias or whatever they are giving to signify those who were in the beta if they just plan to wipe it all? Just a thought.

    oh they'll definitely give us something for our mains when the game releases, but that doesn't necessarily mean they have to keep the characters. But sounds like they are considering it though.
