While the PS4 beta for Bungie’s upcoming multiplayer shooter is currently running in full 1080p, next week’s Xbox One beta test for Destiny unfortunately will only support a lower resolution setting. It is unclear at the moment what resolution will be available to Xbox One owners, but Bungie’s community manager David Dague assured gamers that this is only a temporary set for the beta as he confirmed that the game will run in 1080p resolution across both platforms when it officially launches according to a report by Joystiq on July 17.

Dague reminded fans that the point of the beta is to improve Destiny and make sure that the title is ready for its September release date. The beta build of the game is obviously a different version than what players will see at launch so the limited resolution that will be seen on this month’s Xbox One beta is just one stage of development as Bungie finalizes the title.

The developer is committed to making sure that Destiny provides fans with the same experience regardless of what platform they are playing the game on. As a result, Bungie has revealed to gamers that the upcoming shared-world shooter will include 1080p resolution running at 30 frames per second on both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 alike.

Destiny launches on Sept 9 on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. Those who pre-order the title will gain access to this month’s beta test for an early look at the game. The Playstation beta has now begun and Xbox owners will have their change to participate in the test staring July 23. The beta will give players a sampling of the full game including open environments to explore as well as co-op dungeon and competitive matchmaking which they may participate in.
