The Destiny 2 Beta is on the way. It will give players a chance to try out the shooter while at the same time testing Bungie's network infrastructure.
The more I see about Destiny the less I'm actually interested. Can't wait to see more Anthem though, much more interesting than Destiny ever was because it actually feels like a living world. Bungie promised so much from Destiny and then gave us a handful of planets with boring corridor levels.
Actually the initial reveal of Destiny was quite ambitious like Anthem's. The final product however was quite different from what we were promised. I hope Bioware/EA can deliver on Anthem though, it looks amazing.
I can't wait to see more on Anthem also but no one in their right mind can say that it is more interesting than Destiny after a short game play reveal. Yeah it looked good but don't get your hopes up.
@Shin-Zantetsuken I agree a lot with your comment. There are three things that define Destiny, though: 1. Ultra tight, near perfect shooting mechanics. 2. 100% absurd and voluntary game content starvation to sell DLCs. 3. Skinner box (cassino) cheap addictive mechanics, regardless of actual skill. Anthem needs to replace 1 with near perfect "third person shooting" mechanics to be on par. About 2 and 3... it can be very similar, but there's a chance they are more honest in their design and business plan. So, in comparison with Destiny, Anthem can still lose both the best and the worst Destiny has. Personally, I think they won't have 1, 2 or 3, to be honest, which already makes for a very different experience.
@Shin-Zantetsuken No Anthem is not the same thing as Destiny, just like FIFA is not the same as PES. Same design concepts don't give you the same games if you use them differently. Destiny promised a huge universe with many different planets and in the end we played through a bunch of corridors that could've been almost randomly generated. The only good thing about it was the gunplay but even that couldn't save it because Bungie literally flooded us with microtransactions and DLC.
If you played D1 from the start and paid attention to what was given and supported throughout D1's life you would never question a complaint
I played it for 9 months. Maxed out all 3 classes along with numerous exotic weapons. Ok yes its flawed, but the gunplay was superb and it is really good messing about with friends on D1. Still doesn't answer the question though and isn't an argument..
Boycott? Why would you want to do that?
Have fun twiddling your penis while we're all gamin.
Just preordered on amazon to get the beta (will cancel after though), forgot how soon the beta was. Hopefully unlike Destiny 1 the beta does not showcase the lackluster amount of content the full game had and guarantees so much more.
Will do the same love Amazon lol for that
Bungie said the beta for d1 was 40% of the game
I preordered the PC version but might cancel it because I'm more interested in Anthem
I wouldn't count on Anthem yet. It looks amazing but Destiny is still a fun game.
Or I can just play Destiny 1
Not looking at destiny or anthem. Destiny/Division ruined any shooter/grinder. Anthem will be no different
If the multiplayer is good like the first game(arena MP), then this will possibly be worth it. All the Strike Missions and Single Player was just awful
Not playing this shady ass game.
is this a joke beta test times for xbox 1 for destiny2... good luck with that bungie you slapped xbox fans in the face with your exclusive DLC deals in destiny 1. held all xbox fans hostage with the timed exclusivity of when or if we would ever get that content. but just like all gamers that get screwed over by greedy developers we the xbox gamers remember what you did. your even worse this time around not only are you with holding DLC from us again for the all mighty dollar but now your gimping are new hardware as well... you sure have a big set on you if you think any xbox gamer will support you now. any gamer for that matter. ps if any xbox fans are thinking of purchasing this crap you have no self respect at all.
For Xbox fans: http://www.techtimes.com/am... "content's exclusivity period was extended to "at least Fall of 2017."
Wouldn't it be easier to play on ps4 seeing how they have a ton more exclusives in general? And you're getting mad at bungie for a few things you didn't have that had no effect on your D1 experience? Why don't you get mad at bungie for all their lies and unbalanced weapon metas and any other bs they spew, don't get mad at a few items.
Is this an open beta?
