With its seamless blend of single-player, cooperative, and multiplayer action, Bungie’s Destiny is one of the most intriguing Xbox One games of 2014. When we had a chance to check out the game at E3 a few weeks ago, we had an absolute blast with the head-to-head multiplayer mode – known as Crucible in Destiny’s parlance – and couldn’t wait to play more. This made today’s big news that much sweeter, as the folks at Bungie have announced that the Destiny beta will be landing on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in late-July for fans that pre-order the game.
In addition to Crucible, Destiny features a massive open world for players to explore – solo, with friends, or with matchmade players – that’s chock full of dynamic events, intense firefights, and more sweet loot than you’ll know what to do with. Along the way, you’ll create and customize the hero of your choice using the game’s robust character editor, explore the outer reaches of the universe, and, just maybe, take care of those pesky Wizards on the moon.
Although Destiny won’t be released until September 9, you’ll be able to spend lot of quality time with the game beginning in July with the beta for Xbox One and Xbox 360. We’ll be bringing you more details and specifics about the beta soon, but for now you can head over to the official Destiny site for more information.
