On Monday Bungie revealed the box art for their sci-fi role playing first person shooter Destiny and teased that there was more news to come the following day. Well Tuesday rolled around and the company revealed that they’ll be offering players to become the first to play the game before anyone else in the Destiny Beta.
The Destiny Beta will begin in early 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4; the Xbox One, and the Xbox 360 exclusively to those who pre-order the title at participating retailers. To celebrate the announcement, Activision and Bungie have released a new trailer entitled “The Moon,” featuring a highlighted destination in the game and the Hive, one of the four enemy races featured in Destiny.
“We have no doubt Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “That means we’re putting all our creative support and all our expertise in creating blockbuster franchises into a colossal Destiny Beta that we believe will set a new bar for the next generation of games. Fans have a lot to look forward to in 2014.”
