The Destiny 2 beta has been outed, and it looks like Bungie is giving PS4 gamers early access. We're also given an indication of when we can expect the beta to drop.
That'd be sweet. Will definitely play the beta, played the beta for the first.
I've played through alpha and beta and hundreds of hours between all the builds. I can't really to see how bungie improves the game. There's a whole lot of opportunity here and it'd definitely be a shame if some of the glaring issues from the first game are not addressed. There are too many games that have been raising the bar in their genres and in gaming in general. I have to be honest that have stopped playing as of the past six months or so but I'll definitely pick up the original and get my sharpen my skills once again on this game, I can't wait.
I just hope they don't pull another vanilla Destiny with this one.
The deal for Destiny hasn't changed, if anyone was wondering. PS4 will get everything first and has the marketing rights.
Yeah only fanboys care about that stuff..
Activision and Bungie must be huge fanboys then... The PS4 Destiny bundle selling half a million in a month in the US might have something to do with it. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Actually, I believe business man care a lot about that stuff because deals like this involve a ton of money. So much in fact, that we may not make as much in our entire lives working a 9 to 5 job. Just saying....
Hawkmoon says hi
@Overload You know he was talking from a consumer standpoint. Timed exclusivity doesn't benefit gamers.
As a ps4 owner I care because if I was an Xbox owner I would have to be waiting for stuff. Ps4 will offer the best destiny experience. Whether it's fair well that's a different conversation.
Timed exclusives ruin the industry. Sony, Activision and Bungie and shove it.
I'm not so sure about that. PS4 had many special weapons at least a whole YEAR before xbox did. PLUS we got to use and experience them before certain NERFS. Playstation was the only place to play Destiny as far as I'm concerned.
I definitely care. It took over a year for Xbox to get some of the weapons like Hawkmoon after PS4 had them. Not to mention all the updates and DLC released early. I want that stuff as soon as possible. Has nothing to do with what system I have.
@Corndog No updates or DLC released earlier on PS compared to Xbox. All Updates and DLC dropped at the same time. Only some weapons armor and strikes were exclusive to PS
It's not gonna be nice if PS4 gets the exclusive content again cause this time i'm going for the PC version but if I see exclusive content locked to PS4 I just might not buy the game at all. I loved Destiny on my PS4 but I didnt like the idea that they locked content behind a platform.
But you would have no problem if it was for the PC, right? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you don't even own a PS4.
Keep dreaming bout that pc port
@AnubisG, Don't make stupid assumptions. Don't want exclusive content on any content, why can't we all play the game on whatever platform? lool get your mind out of the gutter. I don't have a PS4? cause why a PS4 is so expensive? My PSN tag is Thunder_God_Bane. Got an Xbox One too and a Nintendo Switch. Sorry i'm not restricted to a single platform like you...
So you have a PS4, played on a PS4, but will not play part 2 on PS4 because you don't like that PS4 had exclusive content that you had access to? You would rather play on PC and not access any extra content even though you admitted that you loved it on PS4? Can't blame anyone for thinking that you having a PS4 at all should be filed under rumor.
@Death, Wrong, you've gotten me all wrong. I enjoyed Destiny on my PS4, obviously couldnt get it on PC as it doesnt exist on PC..... If I could have i would have got it on PC as i do with all my third party games. I get 1080p 60fps on PC why would I get a third party game on my console when its going to be 30fps? Destiny is 30fps on Ps4/xbox one. Destiny 2 most likely will continue to be 30fps on ps4/xbox one cause Im not buying a PS4 pro dont need it.
Apprently people just dont get it. Activision, Bungie and Sony signed a contract before Destiny even released. Ps4 gets exclusive timed content and marketing rights to Destiny for the duration of the franchise. So guess your not getting Destiny 2.
If you do own a PS4 than I don't get you. Just buy D2 on PS4 as well. It's that simple. If you don't understand why there are exclusives than you don't understand business. If you would be able to play every game on every platform than we would only need 1 platform. There would be no competition and gaming would stagnate. But who cares right? Also, yes I only game on PS4. Why? Because I have a business to run, mortgage to pay and my wife and 2 year old to take care of as well and don't have time for multiple consoles. Even 1 console seams too much sometimes because I just don't have the time.
Play on ps4 or don't buy, how hard is that? Quit crying
@thunder, Who cares where you going to play? Don't buy. There your problem is solved. 🤗. Looks like you not going to play a lot of games cause a lot have exclusive content on PS4 or Xbox.
SEEYA. BEEN NICE KNOWING YA. With the monstrous success on Destiny, why would they change anything going into Destiny 2? PS4 is getting all the good stuff at least 12 months before any other platform.
To make people but the version on their platform. And if you really had ps4 then why do you complain ???
Nobody cares. Except those with stock in the companies affiliated and fanboys.
Sure..... Xbox Owners Feel Betrayed Over Destiny Playstation Exclusivity http://www.hardcoregamer.co... Bungie Acknowledges Fan Uproar Over ‘Preferential Treatment to PlayStation’ http://gamingbolt.com/bungi...
@Overload That first link is an article. Can you point me to the actual feelings of betrayal? Cuz I dont see any actual citations. The second one seems to mention some forums but we know how that works. It could be 1 person who posts 1 comment and then suddenly its an article. You haven't given any actual sources to either the betrayal or the uproar. Good job with the links though. I stand corrected though. Certain gamers should care. Those that dont like exclusive content locked away on a particular platform by multiplats. So I do care but not with Destiny since, after the first, probably wont buy the second.
Like when all the Sony fans cried out when they found out Tomb Raider was exclusive to Xbox initially?
I forgot Its only bad and evil when other companies do it that's right but its hurray when Sony does it. Thought it was bad all around? If this was anyone else you would go on a hate campaign about it.
@ ang, who are you talking too? You sound like a mad man.
Hopefully it runs at 60fps on PRO and Scorpio.
60FPS on Pro/Scorpio 30FPS on PS4/XB1 That's not going to happen for a multiplayer only shooter. @Peewee Yeah both Sony and Microsoft said that. It will be 30FPS on both or 60FPS on both.
It won't be either lol. Both companybsaif they wanted a fair battlefield online.
Yeah chances are it will run at 30fps but on can hope. I don't really see the point in these upgraded consoles if we can never see what they are truly capable of. MS and Sony should have "Pro,Scorpio " servers for people with those consoles. I don't see why people who support these upgrades should be punished. Destiny is the one game that I think would benefit the most if it was 60fps at least during campaign play.
"MS and Sony should have "Pro,Scorpio " servers for people with those consoles." To avoid repeating myself twice let's just focus on PS4 since the same thing* can be applied to Xbox One. By doing that you are excluding 55 million players that Pro owners can game with. I don't think it's a good idea to do something like that with a multiplayer only shooter since it's imperative that each player have access to a huge pool of players to make match making easier and faster. *With different numbers of course.
battleborn is 60fps on the pro and still 30 on base. So it can happen
Didn't Battleborn recently get a 60FPS patch for the Pro? Is that not an online shooter?
That almost no one plays
You know this by experience @Kokyu? I have the game here for PS4. Not tried it yet but am willing to bet there will be a decent amount playing considering the game can be had for less then £5.
I'm pretty sure they we're targeting 60fps on base consoles for D2
I would settle for 30fps pve, and 60 fps pvp
How can i get into the beta?
I am wondering if the age of triumph book will reward a beta access or something like that.
Most likely it's an open beta. That will start either the day of or a few days/next week after it's announced officially at E3.
As this say its start in June you can pretty much beat during or right after E3 is when they will begin. I beat Eurogamer just outed their big E3 reveal
I remember at E3 2014 I think. Sony announced you could sign up to Destiny alpha right now. Maybe they will do the same at E3 this year?
Please let this be true for goodness sake.
Yeaaaah! Probably day one buy for me... Hope they improve on story a little
You mean alot.
Don't buy a game like Destiny for story. Its a multiplayer focused game. I'm a Destiny fan so take it from me. These kinds of games are not focused on singleplayer experiences.
@Thunder_G0d_Bane Take it from me, without a good story to indulge in, Destiny 2 will not gain new players, not very many, there must be a good plot. Mindless shooting and grinding w/o a interesting story/plot is what killed Destiny 1.
Can we get a story in this one please?
a sequel. to a mediocre game. thanks, pass. gladly.
Thanks for taking the time out of your day to click on this article and help support the Destiny 2 hype. Sincerely, Bungie and Destiny fans
Nice but this time i'll wait for the complete edition.
So you'll wait 2-3 years and then complain everyone has more experience and gear which isn't fair? May I remind you it's an ever changing game. No actual complete edition unless you mean just in terms of paid exp
There's so much potential here. The first while fun was way too repetitive and small in scope. This is a space game.. make it feel vast. Add spaceships, etc. Warframe has a few things Destiny could use and vice versa. I just need a fantastic space game to get my sci-fi jimmies riled.
Here goes the predictions that said MS changed to smaller booth at E3 to be near 3rd parties to show "The Power of the Scorpio "
Probably will be garbage like the first one and get slightly better with expansion of 19.99 or sale u Destiny 2 game that includes both new expansion like previously done . I will pass
That's the spirit!! XD
Just preparing myself for another hype storm before release only to be disappointed after release.
It shouldn't really matter but I guess it does in the gaming streets.
I'm simply hoping they make it more like they said it would be. Destiny changed a lot from its reveal to the full release. It was supposed to have fully customizable weapons made from hundreds of parts of various rarity. It was supposed to feel a lot more open world and free.
Hate exclusive content on what ever platform. Even though I play mostly on PS4. It's rubbish that Xbox fans pay the same price but get less content. Same thing happens on FIFA every year. I play FIFA on PS4 I pay the same price as the Xbox guys do but I don't get access to legends simply because I bought the game on PlayStation.
I agree 100%. I own a PS4 and bought Destiny on PS4. I felt bad for all the Xbox fans that got the shaft. I dont plan on supporting it this time around. Also got burned out on the repetitiveness from the first.
A story and less greed would be nice, although this is Activision so greed is guaranteed.
