In practice, writing a “review” of a beta is not the wisest thing to do. With that said, try not to think of this as a “review” of the Destiny beta but merely my thoughts on it as a Guardian within The Last City.

After many months of what has been called “the darkness”, Bungie has been letting the information on their new IP Destiny trickle out to fans at a slow rate. The last large amount of information we knew about was the announcement of a beta that will be arriving in 2014; today we received a definitive date as to when we get our hands on this new title.
September 9th, 2014 the world will finally get its hands on the first installment of this new journey. Also unveiled is that the beta will arrive in the Summer of 2014 instead of the Spring of next year as earlier reported. The PlayStation 3 and 4 will still receive access to the beta earlier than the Xbox One and 360. At this point it is still unknown how early it will be available and when it will launch on the Xbox systems.
