Much like the game's post-alien invasion Earth, Bungie's depiction of Venus looks quite a bit different than if you were to visit there today, terraformed vegetation and all. A brief description explains that in the game's lore, the planet was "once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost".

What little we know of Mars may as well be a myth. We built a massive metropolis in the red dust. No one knows what remains of our lost age, now buried beneath the dunes.Destiny is due to launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on September 9th 2014.

Today at Gamescom Bungie and Activision pulled the curtain back a bit on the competitive multiplayer side of things, revealing a few new locations as well as new game modes, and didn't once mention the Traveler or the encroaching Darkness. Chatoic and lush, explosive and with vehicles, this trailer shows just a glimpse of what the competitive MP side of the game is going to look like. Watch it embedded below.

Alongside the player count, it also seems Destiny's beta players couldn't quite figure out which class to play, with 6.5 million Guardians created over the two-week period. The community's kill-to-death ratio in the cooperative story, strike and exploration missions was 22.53, thanks to a grand total of 3.7 billion kills during those quests. What's more, Bungie's Saturday field trip to the moon resulted in 853,235 concurrent players.
You can check out the entirety of the infographic over here. Destiny will be launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 come September 9th. While you wait, why not check out the beta's streamable soundtrack below to relive the testing phase.

The exact figure came in at 4,638,937, which is pretty astonishing considering how short a period it was available for. The beta kicked off on Sony platforms on July 17, before coming to Xbox owners the following week.
Bungie COO Pete Parsons said, "We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we’ll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch.”

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
