Bungie has issued a statement warning fans about using alternative ways to access the online multiplayer beta of the forthcoming multiplatform video game, “Destiny.” According to a report by GameSpot on Oct. 2, the development studio revealed that some suspected individuals are trying to take advantage of the “enthusiasm” from consumers.
Bungie disclosed that a few “bogus websites” have already opened, promising access to the play test. The company warned fans to make sure that the source is trusted when finding codes on the internet. Otherwise, the development studio suggested that you should pre-order “Destiny” at select retailers in order to be guaranteed for a beta access code. You can take a look at some screenshots form the new intellectual property in the slideshow near the top of this article and the full statement from Bungie below (courtesy of GameSpot):
Don't let someone exploit your enthusiasm. The only way to guarantee a Beta code is to acquire one from a participating retailer. Accept no substitutes! Bogus websites are starting to spring up. You might find Beta codes elsewhere on the Internet. Just make sure you're dealing with a trusted source.
The online multiplayer beta for “Destiny” is scheduled to begin early next year on all four of the following platforms: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The only official method to obtain a code revealed so far is by reserving the shared-world first-person shooting video game at select retailers like Amazon and GameStop.
The final version of “Destiny” will be released by Activision for the four aforesaid consoles sometime during the spring season of 2014. The online-only video game does not need a paid subscription. You can pre-order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Destiny,” PS4 and Xbox One
