Say Goodbye to Destiny’s Beta With These Enormous Panoramic Screenshots of the Moon Level on PS4

Destiny’s beta was supposed to end a few hours ago, yet the servers are still up at the moment of this writing. Bungie isn’t exactly known for dropping the axe on the cabling as soon as the clock’s arm reaches the twelve. Yet, it's soon going to end, and to help saying goodbye, here are some enormous and rather spectacular panoramic screenshots. (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Dang, I didn't realize the moon was playable yesterday during the event. Although I really didn't have time to play through another SP level, but I did manage to get in one match on the different MP level though (Iron banner event?), and I liked it. The level size is just right, it isn't too open or big and has no vehicles/turrets (like the moon map, which I absolutely HATE) or too confined like the other MP map (great for Titans only).

It seems to me the maps really cater to the different classes. For the small tight confined map, it is prefect for Titans. The moon map was perfect for hunters and their annoying OHK sniper rifles. And the Iron banner map was perfect for Warlocks and AR's.

TLOU and Diablo 3 for me. XXXD
Dynasty2021  +   219d ago
They've said the beta will end when they say it ends, and the 27th was just a target, not set in stone.

Unfortunately, I think most of us will walk away with a sour taste now, what with the recent "one zone per map" news.

Lots of debating and trolling and flaming to come before September.

If Activision has any sense, they'll be putting Bungie on the defence and damage control first thing Monday morning, clarifying the worries we have.

I thought this beta was great! I can't wait for the full game to come out. September will get here soon enough though I'm not rushing it. Hopefully I can play some more of the game today..... Better just login right now :)

I'll miss it. Brokenfield 4 will have to hold me over again till it drops.

I was not super hyped for Destiny and man am I glad I wasnt. What a let down... The people behind the great Halo made one of the most unbalanced competitive shooters I have ever played and the MMORPG elements seem rather lackluster. I primarily want to buy it and see if the full game has anything to wow me because right now I doubt it. Sadly all my friends will still get it so unless I want to be left out of all the supposed fun to be had I have to get it. I know this much I am not getting the limited edition like I planned to. After the beta I don't even really want to spend $60

It seems like it wants to be all these games ME, Halo, CoD, Borderlands, and an MMO yet I would just rather play each of these games more than Destiny.

Translation: "It isn't Halo and I wanted Bungie to just make another Halo (There aren't nearly enough Halos)."

Do tell how this game tried to be like COD and ME. Keep in mind when explaining yourself that ME didn't invent scifi or RPG elements and the fact that anyone can clearly tell that it's nothing like COD.

I would say it's more like borderlands with a little DCUO. Very fluid and responsive like FPSs, CoD/BF, but it looks like borderlands since they have similar gameplay art styles. Destiny lookd better to me though.

It's totally Halo with leveling. I hope someone makes a comparison video showing just how Halo it is.

"It's totally Halo with leveling"

And a currency system. And a completely different mission structure. And classes. And a completely different multiplayer system. And RPG elements. And...

Yeah, no, you're completely off.

It's OK bro. You don't HAVE to play this game. Plenty of other people will gladly play it for you:)

Sounds like you're secret loving the game inside, but hating it outside.
Sevir  +   219d ago
Call of Duty? Lol ok... I can't, I just can't...

This game has far more exploration than Mass Effect. Anyone with sense can see that, this games closest legitimate comparison is BORDERLANDS, and even that is a stretch because the cornerstone and core pillars of Destiny are more socially engaging than Borderlands.

I honestly can't fathom how people can play 10% of the game under controlled instances with low level caps, limited weapon customers.ization and a hand full of missions and one strike and say this is all the game has. The MMO portion of the game is deep in and of itself already, and we don't even know what the end game content is.

And seriously Bungie has been preaching since day one that this game isn't JUST about blasting your friends in the face in PVP, but that the greater goal is the exploration, the looting, the grinding and leveling of your class and gear, and becoming the envy when you find rare legendary gear, weapons and armour. It's not even so much about the story as it's lore is ok but uncovering the unknown.

We STILL haven't explored 100% of earth, 3 areas of earth are completely walled off all presenting higher levels of challenges, we STILL haven't experienced the second and planned 3rd Subclass that will be either added by DLC or discovered in the main story, which are once again locked out of a stress test beta designed to see if servers can handle a large amount of people. We barely got to see the Moon, we haven't even touched Venus, or Mars, and we haven't seen anything of the Rift. And people are complaining about Earth being too small. Lol. We played about 50% of Earth and by design that in its self is LARGE people are still finding places and discovering new areas of the huge map.

Can you naysayers just quit with the trolling, we understand you weren't blown away, that's fair, but the outlandish comparisons to other games which don't have even a fraction of the scope on offer here and are completely different experiences all together just makes your ranting seem deliberate and completely disingenuous. If you want a competitive shooter, you'll find it here, but Thats not the pillars of Destiny, if that's all you're looking for when the game is so much more than that, then you can go right back to the standard affairs, Halo, Killzone, Battlefield, Call of Duty, EVOLVE.

Quit judging it on incomplete, completely walled off and controlled variables. You played 1/10th the content... You've played far less with demos and multiplayer beta that do little in the way of representing the full game.

That's all I'm saying.

averagejoe26  +   219d ago
It's Halo mixed with Borderlands... With an added mmo element... Nothing about mass effect or call of duty in this game... Still trying to figure out if you're trolling or not.

If you don't like the game, that's fine. But your explanation is illogical and unsatisfactory.
P_Bomb  +   218d ago
The 3rd person hub is pure Mass Effect. Its the Citadel 1.5. Even the loading screens with the orbital jump ship are straight up winks to the Normandy loading screens from Mass Effect. I'm sure the planet/space exploring will remind me of ME as well when it opens up.

@LAWSON72

All of that. Annnnnnnd...you're still buying it. Which voids all the negative perception to the game you might have, according to Activision/Bungie's wallets... :-/

You see Xbone lacks MP games I can play with friends other than BF4 which can be a headache at times (TF is not very active amongst my friends and I dont play CoD). And the fact is the game will be just as successful without my purchase and at the end of the day I dont want to give up on Bungie that fast over just a underwhelming beta because I have been a Halo fan for a long time and I have soft spot for Bungie because no online game I have ever played was so alive and engaging as Halo 3. In a way I am buying it out of curiosity to see if Bungie still has any bit of the talent left or if they have became nothing more than a puppet of Activision. What I got from the Crucible in Destiny was a feeling of too much CoD and not enough arena style like Halo, IMO it just felt like that aspect of the game was Bungie tackling a CoD game. This judging from playing it for easily 30hrs on both PS3 and Xbone.

At the least I get a mediocre coop game which are still fun for at least one playthrough and I got to experience the most hyped game of the year to see if it was worth the big deal.

Other than the fact that I need a new controller for my 360, I enjoyed the beta for the two days that I played it. I wasn't gonna download it on either console as I generally don't like to do betas but it was fun. It was a Halo RPG no matter what people say.

Having said all that, it reminded me so much of Global Agenda with planets.

Does anyone know if your character unlocks carry over to the full game?
Stapleface  +   219d ago
It's not likely that they will. This is the case with most betas. Sometimes you get something for being in the beta, but your progress almost never carries over to the full game.
