The Destiny beta won’t go live until early next year, but those fortunate enough to snag an access code off the game’s social media sites will be able to join those who pre-ordered the game on the test beta.
Early this month Bungie community manager Eric Osborne said the developer would be treating the game like a full-fledged title launch.
“We can’t just carve out three competitive multiplayer maps this time around. We’d only be gathering data on one facet of the overall experience –– one that is arguably the least resource intensive and most well understood by our team,” Osborne said. “Destiny demands more.”
Osborne said Bungie will be fortunate to have gamers help collect “millions of data points” during the beta, as the developer has a ambitious undertaking on its hands with Destiny.
Destiny should hit shelve sometime early in 2014 for the PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
