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. For those that are unsure what Destiny is, it is Bungie’s sort of shooter/MMO hybrid with the setting of various different planets in our solar system. Yes, you can actually go to the moon.
In celebration of the PlayStation 4 being released on Friday, Bungie announced to their fans that the beta for their upcoming project Destiny will be releasing on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 first. The beta is expected to start some time in early 2014, with the games launch rumored to be in the Spring of 2014 as well.
In order to gain a spot in the beta, just simply pre-order the game from your preferred retailer. You can locate that information on this page. Also as part of this announcement, we received a little trailer featuring footage in-engine on a PlayStation 4.
Let us know what you think about the beta arriving on the PS3 / PS4 first in the comments section!
Yesterday the cover art for Bungie’s new IP Destiny was unveiled for the systems it will be released on. Today we saw the arrival of a new trailer; showcasing one destination that many have been waiting for, the moon.
The countdown to the launch of Crysis 3 has begun! In just 6 days EA and award winning developers Crytek GmbH will release Crysis 3 to gamers worldwide.
Even though EA has yet to officially announce any sequel to the highly popular Battlefield series, Customers who Pre-Order Medal Of Honour: Warfighter, will gain exclusive access to the Battlefield 4 Beta, according to an advertisement on EA’s digital distribution service. This has since been removed by EA. This is interesting because of no official Battlefield 4 announcement from DICE or EA, and because Battlefield 3 DLC’s will continue until March 2013.
Clicking the “Pre-Order” button will not have any more information on Battlefield 4 and neither does the official Battlefield website.
While not being officially announced, another addition to the increasingly popular Battlefield series is hardly surprising, Battlefield 3 is still selling well and more than 800,000 people have signed up for Battlefield Premium.
Rumours of new Battlefield games have been in the air for some time. EA president Frank Gibeau confirmed Battlefield 4 in an off-handed comment last year, and Battlefield Bad Company 3 appeared on an employee resume recently. Also a retailer listed a title called “Battlefield Evolved” back in March.
IGN have questioned EA about Battlefield 4 and they will update with any comment they receive. Until then, we just have to sit here and wonder, “Could it be real?”
Morning fellow Skyrim fans, those of you that signed up should find if your lucky, a redeemable code for the full Dawnguard beta in your inbox, don’t worry if you didn’t get one as apparently a second batch of codes are due to be sent out tomorrow!
Here at IVG we are yet to enter the beta, fingers crossed for us for tomorrow!
The highly anticipated third game in the Far Cry series by Ubisoft is getting a multiplayer beta this summer! Currently there is no set release date for the beta, but it is expected to run for about two weeks on both the Xbox 360 and PS3. Unfortunately, it sounds like PC gamers are going to be left out on this one as Ubisoft have no plans to release a beta for the PC. As it will be a closed beta there are only a few ways to get into it. Your first method to get it in was to pre-order Ghost Recon Future Soldier. If you did and picked it up this past Tuesday, you will be receiving a code closer to the start date of the multiplayer beta. If you are also a GameStop Power-Up Rewards memeber you will be able to net yourself a code to get in.
If you weren’t able to pre-order a copy of Ghost Recon or are not a member the Power-Up Rewards program don’t worry! There are still other ways you can get your hands on a beta code. The Far Cry 3 Facebook page is having a contest you can sign up for where 500 beta keys are up for grabs. If Facebook isn’t your style you can keep an eye on Ubisoft’s official Far Cry 3 Twitter page as well. Ubisoft has also stated that there will be more methods to get access into the beta, more information on these methods will be revealed closer to the starting date of the beta however
When the beta goes live, you’ll be able to play in 16 player matches on several maps accompanied with matching gametypes to try out. Also available, will be six classes to chose from to run around the maps and slay your friends. Lastly, you’ll be able to try out the new feature of customizing your weapons during this time frame.
