A very interesting link has been posted on Reddit’s DestinyTheGame subreddit which seems to strongly suggest that there is a beta test on the way for Bungie’s Destiny.
This message was found in the source code at a link that has now been removed:
“Pre-order Destiny at select retailers and receive admission to the Destiny Beta. Play it first. Become Legend.”
This would be no surprise as Bungie have been soliciting for gamers to help with their new games as “Bungie Beta Tester “ for a while now – I think I signed up on 3/9/11 – so just over two years ago.
I, and everyone else (I assume) have not heard a peep from Bungie about doing anything in that time. The suggestion that those who pre-order Destiny have some kind of way in to the game seems like a cash grab at best…. And as a way to create publicity for the release of the game. And of course to help with beta testing….
