Destiny 2 beta will have early access for PS4 gamers; may start in June

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

That'd be sweet. Will definitely play the beta, played the beta for the first.

thejigisup243d ago

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.

blitz0623243d ago

I just hope they don't pull another vanilla Destiny with this one.

Overload244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

The deal for Destiny hasn't changed, if anyone was wondering. PS4 will get everything first and has the marketing rights.

PlayableGamez-244d ago

Yeah only fanboys care about that stuff..

Overload244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

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.

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

Liqu1d244d ago

@Overload You know he was talking from a consumer standpoint. Timed exclusivity doesn't benefit gamers.

Thatguy-310243d ago

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.

Unspoken243d ago

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.

CorndogBurglar243d ago

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.

Benchm4rk243d ago

@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.

AnubisG244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

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.

holdmyown83244d ago

Keep dreaming bout that pc port

Thunder_G0d_Bane244d ago

@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...

Deathdeliverer244d ago

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.

Thunder_G0d_Bane244d ago

@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.

Kokyu244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

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.

AnubisG244d ago

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.

InTheZoneAC243d ago

Play on ps4 or don't buy, how hard is that? Quit crying

Sparta07243d ago

@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.

DashArrivals243d ago

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.

bouzebbal243d ago

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.

game4funz243d ago

@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.

Unspoken243d ago

Like when all the Sony fans cried out when they found out Tomb Raider was exclusive to Xbox initially?

AngelicIceDiamond243d ago (Edited 243d ago )

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.

Sparta07243d ago

@ ang, who are you talking too? You sound like a mad man.

Hopefully it runs at 60fps on PRO and Scorpio.

MasterCornholio244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

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.

peewee11016244d ago

It won't be either lol. Both companybsaif they wanted a fair battlefield online.

BLKxSEPTEMBER244d ago

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.

MasterCornholio244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

"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.

holdmyown83244d ago

battleborn is 60fps on the pro and still 30 on base. So it can happen

ocelot07244d ago

Didn't Battleborn recently get a 60FPS patch for the Pro? Is that not an online shooter?

Kokyu244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

That almost no one plays

ocelot07243d ago (Edited 243d ago )

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.

InTheZoneAC243d ago

I'm pretty sure they we're targeting 60fps on base consoles for D2

corroios244d ago

How can i get into the beta?

Rude-ro244d ago

I am wondering if the age of triumph book will reward a beta access or something like that.

Summons75244d ago

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.

Kokyu244d ago

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

ocelot07244d ago

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?
