Updated: PS4 Will Get First Access to Destiny Beta, With Alpha Entry This Week

PS4 owners will get a first crack at the beta for Bungie's highly-anticipated shooter, with some having the chance to access the Destiny Alpha later this week.

Updated: The PS4 version of Destiny will also include a PS4 exclusive "Strike on Mars" mission and co-op map, available at launch.

Original Story: Sony's press conference started with the announcement that PS4 gamers will get first access to the beta of Destiny, which will take place on July 17.

PS4 gamers will also have the chance to take part in the game's First Look Alpha, which will be available on Thursday, June 12, at noon pacific time and run until Sunday, June 15, at 11:59 p.m. pacific time. Players interested in registering for a chance to enter the alpha can do so here.

The Bungie shooter, the first the Halo creator has made since becoming independent from Microsoft, will be made available in a special Sony bundle which will include a "glacier white" PS4 with a 500 gigabyte hard drive and 30 days of the PlayStation Plus service. Destiny launches September 9.

with "absolutely no plans to charge a subscription fee" and a commitment that will, in all probability see the game supported till the final close of generation 8...if this game is any good...it's potentially a great reason to still own a generation 7 console :P

ps...it's an mmo. you can say "shared world shooter" as much as you want Bungie..it's still an mmo.

Still meh
uninspired and generic looking

Isn't this the thing that the developers claimed would be just as iconic as Star Wars? Because with names like "The Darkness" and "The Traveler" and a little floaty robot guy that looks like one of the things from Portal, there isn't much that really stands out as iconic, or even original.

Anyone else having trouble logging in to sign up for Alpha?

No, I just put in my Psn name twice and everything was fine.

Does anyone know anything about this game other than they like making pre-rendered trailers and there will be some guns in it ?
