I just preordered because it wouldn't even charge my card/wallet yet, what a trap.

I assume they'll email through beta codes soon after purchase?


If you used PSN it does it straight away.

Ok cool, did buy it from the PSN store in a browser.

Seems to have added the Beta to the download queue (with 6 weird N/A Games before it) so should be all good.

On the bungie site when you hit the BETA button at the top it still says "enter your code" not "beta activated", even after logging out and in which was a bit concerning.

Yeah that concerned me a bit initially, but any PSN purchases don't need a code.

Cheers for confirming.

In my Download Queue the 12.3gb Destiny Beta now says "Playable" but it couldn't have already downloaded.. odd.

There's also "Destiny" and "PRE ORDER OFFER" that are "Waiting" with the 8/9/14 release date.

Guess i'll see what's happening when I get home.

It is, I sort all my downloads out at work =)

And fine, you fucks. I'm a bit poor, but I'll buy this for some Saturday shooting.

And now I'm playing for a couple of hours (hopefully).

Edit: YOU LIED TO ME DESTINY. So I downloaded the beta file from the store, went pretty quick for almost 13gig, then open it up to start playing; "TRANSFERRING GAME CONTENT". In other words, the installer/update file is 3gig and the game is 10.

On the plus side, the artwork in the loading screen is pretty as fuck and the music rather pleasant.

So the max level for the beta is 8, and it seems like a large portion of the game is locked off.

So far I've really enjoyed it. Feels like a cross between Borderlands, WoW and CoD.

If you preorder on PSN, you don't pay til the pre-download stage and get the beta client. You can also cancel the pre-order if you want to afterwards.

I'm on today, just hit level 5. I like the better storyline so far.

Yeah I really enjoyed it too. It's really well put together, is crazy polished and a shit load of fun.

I think the boss fights could use a bit of tweaking and it would be nice if loot stood out a bit more, but I can definitely see this being a big thing and lasting a while.

The act of being in a fireteam that goes everywhere (missions, pvp, back to the tower, etc) together is great and makes you feel like a real squad that's making a difference, as weird as that sounds.

Great shots there, Forkeh. I really like the screenshot with all of the space fighters.

I also understand why the characters all wear masks, the faces look like absolute shit. Kiral's dude is the only one amongst you three that actually looks cool.

Edit: Mystery Stairs Man has a cool mask, you should kill him and take it imo.
Fun
Good lord that looks spectacular graphically, so much Mass Effect nostalgia right now. Might have to actually buy a fucking PS4 now.

Well, I played for most of today and still enjoyed it even though I was Nigel No Mates. Having randoms wandering around the zones is good, and can make questing that little bit easier. I did the side mission in a fire team; same one that I did with Clown in the alpha, and it was a bit better, but there needs to be ammo caches or something. The fucking spider tank and it's stupid legs...

I used the same hax method on the roof though, only died when I went to revive a team mate and scrounge for ammo.

Definitely good potential still.
