Bungie’s famed beta for its upcoming super-budget shooter Destiny is now available to anyone who has a subscription to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service.
In a turn of events that may very well peeve gamers who thought it necessary to pre-order Bungie’s upcoming sci-fi shooter in order to gain elusive access to its celebrated Beta, the Halo developers had a change of heart, instead allowing for virtually any PlayStation 4 gamer to have a shot in the beta version of the game.
‘’Today, at 4:00 PM PDT, we’re opening the Destiny Beta to anyone who wants to create a character and walk in their boots. There are, of course, some requirements. You’ll need to have a compatible console equipped with PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold. You’ll need to be brave,’’ reads a statement on the developer’s official website.
It continues: ‘’Help us deliver the game you deserve. Before we shut this party down, we’ll welcome everyone who wants a preview of this brave new world. If you have yet to play Destiny, look for offers to download the Beta directly from your console later on this afternoon.’’
For anyone wondering, the Destiny beta weighs in at over 10GB and runs until the end of the weekend, with a host of changes and surprises lined up for the weekend.
