The beta will only run until 11:59 pm PDT, July 27. Moreover, the game will be offline on July 21 and July 22, for some maintenance purposes.
The companies said that beta will include “a diverse sampling of major activities featured in the full game.” Although the game is open for someone who pre-orders it, yet the website of Destiny notifies that the access of beta will only be available “while beta codes last.” So, it is probably good to save the code at the earliest. Moreover, the code should also be printed on the receipt, or on a flyer given at the purchase time, or otherwise, in the email sent via a retail rewards program.
Destiny has been scheduled for a release on September 9. Describing further, Bungie and Activision, said, “players are cast as Guardians of the last city on Earth, who will explore the ancient ruins of our solar system from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus.”
Furthermore, the companies are reportedly paying USD 500 million to ensure that the game proves to be a success. They said, “Gamers must battle humanity’s enemies and reclaim all that was lost during the collapse of mankind’s Golden Age.”
The normal edition of this game will be set at USD 60 for all platforms. However, Activision and Bungie revealed that there are three more collectors’ editions; the Destiny Digital Guardian Edition (USD 89.99), the Destiny Limited Edition (USD 99.99) and The Destiny Ghost Edition (USD 149.99).
Both Limited Edition and Destiny Ghost include a Guardian Folio, a limited-edition SteelBook Case and a Game Disc, Destiny Expansion Pass, as well as a Collector’s Edition Digital Content Pack.
Moreover, the Ghost Edition features a Ghost replica having motion-activated lights as well as actor Peter Dinklage’s voice recordings, the voice of the character in Ghost, which is actually the personal companion of the player in the game. Also, there is a Letter of Introduction and Golden Age Relics, which includes a Patch, Sticker, Photo and 2 Chrome slides of Traveler.
In addition to these, Destiny Digital Guardian Edition also includes a digital downloaded copy of the game, Collector’s Edition Digital Content Pack and Destiny Expansion Pass, which can now be pre-ordered independently for USD 34.99.
