I’m ready when you are.
Yup, having spent the past three days playing it, I can easily say there’s a lot of promise around it and justifiably so. Bungie’s next big thing is seemingly going to be one hell of a game. And this is only the Alpha version that’s been played. Just imagine what it’ll be like next month when the beta goes live ahead of the full game’s release in September.
For the past few days, I’ve been recording videos of the game in action: nine competitive Control matches as all three classes, a look at the character creation (main class is a Warlock, but as you’ll see below, I also made a female Titan), a brief exploration of the Tower – the player’s hub in the game – plus two recordings of the Cullen Plays LIVE streams from Thursday and Sunday and one final look at the taster. Find the videos in one playlist below.
(watch to the end of the Tower video – I’m sure YouTube is going to yank it once it goes live, but watch anyways)
Destiny releases September 9 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A beta will begin first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on July 17 and subsequently afterwards on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
