Those wishing they had the chance to try out Destiny's beta but were having trouble securing a code need not worry, as developer Bungie has today revealed that the entire beta is now open to all those aspiring to be a Guardian.

A new blog post notes that the servers should now be open to anyone with a PlayStation or Xbox console, however, you'll require at the very least a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live subscription to participate. The beta has been running since late last week, where initially PlayStation platforms were able to access the testing grounds before the beta was opened up to Xbox platforms earlier this week.

The beta allows testers the chance to taste the sci-fi universe that Bungie is creating, but only up until level eight (though you can roll three classes) so savour every moment. Players can access a variety of story missions, the very first strike mission (think dungeons in MMOs) and The Crucible, a PvP-centered zone for those who want to flex their competitive muscles. You'll find all required information directly through your console.

Bungie has sent word that the previously presumed two day maintenance for their sci-fi FPS MMO Destiny has resolved ahead of schedule, bringing the beta back online a day earlier than expected.

With the beta now back online, both PlayStation and Xbox platform owners can now access the testing grounds, previously only available exclusively to PlayStation consoles. The beta offers up a more polished look at the first few hours of Destiny, including Old Russia and The Crucible PvP zone. Earth's Moon is hinted at once reaching level 6 (the beta is capped at level 8), however sadly Bungie is keeping that one locked away until launch.

Destiny will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come September 9th. How are you fairing in the beta? Found any epic loot worth sharing? Let us know in the comments!

Bungie has sent word to remind players that their Destiny beta will be offline for the next two days as the developer works on a maintenance period, with the beta phase to re-open on Thursday.

Thursday will not only mark the return of the beta, but will also allow those on the Xbox platforms the chance to jump into the world of Destiny. Originally launching last Thursday, Sony fans have been able to access the beta exclusively until now, with the beta opening to Xbox One and Xbox 360 come Thursday, 3:00AM AEST. The beta will remain open for all platforms until 4:59pm AEST on July 28th.

While developer Bungie is working hard on the maintenance periods, it hasn't stopped the studio from revealing just what pre-ordering the game will get you, besides the game of course. Those eager to throw their cash down ahead of the game's release will be able to gain exclusive access to the Vanguard Armoury pack, which gives you early access to several weapons and helmets. These include three helmets and one weapon in each category, along with an exclusive player emblem.

Destiny will be launching on September 9th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Bungie has sent word that their beta phase for sci-fi shooter Destiny has now gone live, bringing the action to the big screens of those on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

Players will be able to compete in a wide range of content including the ability to level up to the respectable level 8, though we are told that this can take a fair few hours. Players will also get access to the PvP battlegrounds, the community-hub Tower and of course Destiny's infamous hovering bikes. More on what the beta has to offer can be found at the official website.

Destiny's beta will continue exclusively on the PlayStation consoles until July 23rd, with Xbox One and Xbox 360 players gaining access then. Maintenance is planned for July 21st and July 23rd, with the beta finishing on July 27th. Destiny will then launch on September 9th, so the wait won't be entirely long.

Get into the Destiny Beta? Don't be shy and share all your details in the comments below on how you are enjoying the fight for Earth, and show us how your Guardian looks in-game!

Hallmark developer Bungie has today confirmed that the Xbox One version of their sci-fi MMO shooter Destiny will be running at the fabled 1080p resolution, though it won't be doing so during the beta starting next week.

The news was confirmed in a recent IGN Live segment, which the (unofficial) Destiny Blog was nice enough to spot. Bungie community manager David Daguee (Deej) confirmed the Xbox One news, noting that the 1080p visual upgrade will only be available on the launch of the game. Sadly this means that those joining in on the beta come next week will have to endure a lower res until its launch. PlayStation 4 will be running at 1080p in both beta and launch.

Destiny will begin its beta tomorrow morning at 3AM AEST for PlayStation players, with Xbox fans will have to wait until next week for their turn.

Destiny will be available come September 9th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Ahead of the upcoming beta test, Bungie has offered up a look at one of the maps that will be on show, with Lead Designer Lars Bakken taking IGN on a walking tour of "Blind Watch", an abandoned human civilization on Mars.

Blind Watch is reportedly a player versus player environment that will make up part of Destiny's Crucible mode, and as you'd expect from a Mars base, it's very orange. Check it out below.

The Destiny Beta is due to kick off on PlayStation 3 and 4 on July 18th, followed by Xbox One and 360 on July 24th, ahead of the game's full launch on September 9th.

Publisher Activision has today revealed new details on when we can expect Bungie's online sci-fi FPS Destiny to hit the beta stages, with PlayStation platforms gaining access first come July 18th at 3:00 AM AEST.

Following the launch on PlayStation, a brief two-day downtime is expected on July 22nd to July 23rd, and once finished Xbox One and Xbox 360 players will be able to gain access to the beta. Sadly that means that Xbox players will only get access to the beta servers for maximum four days, compared to PlayStation's nearly week-long access.

Alongside the beta dates, Bungie and Activision also revealed three "epic" collector's edition versions of the game. The Destiny Ghost Edition and the Destiny Limited Edition both include a copy of the game in a limited edition SteelBook, an assortment of physical collections in the Guardian Folio (Arms & Armament Field Guide, Postcards from the Golden Age and Antique Star Chart), plus the usual assortment of Collector's Edition DLC that will no doubt be sold separately at a later date. A season pass is also included, which is detailed below on what to expect:
Destiny Expansion Pass – expands the Destiny adventure post-launch with the following two expansions, which will include brand new story missions, cooperative activities and competitive multiplayer arenas, and a wealth of all new weapons, armour and gear to earn:
  • Expansion I: The Dark Below – Set deep beneath the surface of the Moon, fans will discover an ancient tomb that has been unsealed, and a dark god who has risen an evil army in the depths of the Hellmouth, the home of the Hive enemy race
  • Expansion II: House of Wolves – Details will be revealed later
  • PlayStation platforms will also include additional exclusive content with each expansion
  • A Destiny Ghost Edition will also be available for purchase, though scouring the web it looks like most retailers have sold out on this edition so far. The edition includes a replica of the Ghost companion that lights up and makes sounds, plus a Letter of Introduction and Golden Age Relics, which include a Photo, Patch, Sticker and two Chrome slides of the Traveler.

    Destiny will be launching come September 9th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360

    Originally spotted by VideoGamer, a new trailer for Bungie's upcoming multiplayer shooter Destiny has revealed that Xbox One and Xbox 360 fans will be gaining access to the upcoming beta in late July.

    The trailer is currently being played through Xbox One's dashboard, with the date featured towards the end of the video. Xbox Live Gold is mentioned as a requirement, though not much of a surprise considering PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 users require PlayStation Plus for online activity. Access to the beta requires a pre-order.

    Sony's consoles have already been confirmed to have beta access on July 17th, so we expect that exclusivity to last only a week or two before Xbox fans can jump in on the action. A number of exclusive content deals have also been taking form for PlayStation console players, though rumours have begun creeping out that this content may only be exclusive until late 2015.
