Everyone wants to play Destiny already, especially considering it was one of the first next-gen games revealed that truly blew people's minds. A 2014 release date stamped out a bit of the early anticipation, but with each passing month it's easier to get excited. It helps that Bungie has just announced that a public beta of the game will begin "early 2014" and access is available with preorder. Early 2014 is much sooner than other times in 2014!
To celebrate the announcement of the game's beta, Bungie has also released a new trailer featuring content from their Moon setting. The trailer, aptly titled "The Moon," runs rather like an MMO dungeon trailer by introducing the setting and then providing a flyby look at the path we'll explore and the enemies we'll encounter. It should come as no surprise, but the content in the trailer is visually stunning. I can't wait to create my own Master Chief and explore the Moon.
Destiny is currently planned for release in 2014 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though the public beta is confirmed for early 2014. Guess that means a full release mid-2014? Expect more information on the game in the months to come, but for now -- take a trip to the MOOOOOOON. At least it isn't more of Old Russia.
