Destiny Beta Underway for All Supported Platforms:
The destiny Beta is now well underway for Xbox360, XboxOne, Playstation 3, and Playstation 4.
Wednesday Evening, saw a Live Stream event from San Diego Comic Con 2014, with Xbox. Bungie were present in the form of remote communication with the host Larry “majornelson” Hryb, and were able to answer a few questions about the upcoming game.The questions that Bungie were able to respond to were very limited, but some questions that did get answered were the following:
Q: Can a the “Sparrow” (vehicle) shoot at all?
A: No, and it cannot be shot at either.
Q: Will trading items with friends be possible?
A: This is not planned for launch, but certainly something they can look at adding later on.
Q: Are levels going to be reset prior to launch?
A: Yes, stay tuned to Bungie.net for details.
Q: Can you play anywhere besides Russia?
A: There are several other locations, not announced yet.
Bungie: When you get in the beta, make sure you check out all of the caves, as there tends to be goodies in the caves.
Don’t forget, there will be a special event happening tomorrow at 2pm-4pm PDT for all Beta testers. To participate, just make sure you are present in game during those hours.
“1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We’re going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.
2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we’re spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper “crime revenge” story experience.
3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we’re going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4, are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.”
We will be following this game very closely as launch approaches early next year, and look forward to seeing how the game develops with the now extended time frame.
