Today’s July 7th, better known as Bungie day among the Bungie faithful. Bungie dropped quite a bit of news already today and the day is still young.
First, the big news. The Destiny beta will start on July 17th on Playstation and July 23rd on Xbox One. Want in? You’re going to have to pre-order Destiny. It looks like Playstation users have a six-day head start, but it’s really just four. Maintenance on the Destiny servers will bring the game offline on July 21-22.
Clear your weekend because the Destiny beta will only be online until the end of the day on July 26th.
Check out the Destiny trailer below announcing the beta dates.
