Destiny beta is now open to all!

Bungie opens the flood gates for a weekend of stress-testing carnage

Bungie has announced that they have thrown open the Destiny beta for all to play.

There are a few restrictions on who can play it. PlayStation gamers will need a PS Plus subscription, especially the PS4 gamers who need it to participate in the Crucible PvP. Xbox One and 360 gamers will need to be fully subscribed to Xbox Live Gold (no trial vouchers are supported). Also, due to the hard disc space required the Destiny beta will not work on any Xbox 360 without a hard drive (that's the Core, Arcade and 4GB machines) or the PS3 12GB system.

Other than that everyone will be able to play the Destiny beta until Bungie takes the servers offline on July 28th (that's Monday). Destiny beta is now open to all!

Bungie wrote on their official blog, “The Beta has been eye-opening so far. We’ve watched the world of Destiny come to life. Guardians from every platform have arrived at the Tower from their battles in the wild. We have watched your adventures with great interest, and listened to your feedback. Your missions have provided us with volumes of discoveries we can use to prepare for the launch of Destiny in September.”

”Our work is not done,” they added. “There is more we can learn. To make this happen, we need more Guardians to play. This is, above all else, a test.”

If you can't get in on the beta our editor will be streaming some gameplay on Sunday over on his personal Twitch channel.

Destiny will will be released on September the 9th on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
