Destiny beta details, trailer revealed

We're just about two months away from the release of Bungie's sci-fi saga Destiny. Today, Activision revealed information on the forthcoming beta, along with a new trailer that's certainly eye catching.

The beta will begin on July 17th on the PlayStation 4, and then on July 23rd for Xbox One. It'll run through July 27th, but there will be a "beta rally" on the 26th, where those who stand up "to be counted" will receive a special reward…if they manage to make it to the tower, that is.

Now, the beta will be undergoing maintenance on the 21st and 22nd, probably to prepare for the incoming Xbox audience, so you were warned. Outside of that, blast aliens to your heart's content!

Those who pre-order the game (even today, if you haven't already) will be guaranteed beta access, so you might want to jump on that sooner rather than later. Destiny releases on September 9th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
