Destiny Beta Now Live on PS4 and PS3; Watch Our Livestream Here

Now is your chance to check out Bungie's next game ahead of its launch in September.

The Destiny beta is now officially live on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and we'll be playing it live starting at 11AM PST (barring any technical difficulties) here on GameSpot.

Provided you've gotten yourself a beta code--the easiest way is to preorder the game--you can redeem it on Bungie's website. Assuming you select either the PS4 or PS3 version as your platform of choice (your beta code gets you access on only one system), you should now have access to three download codes through Bungie's website (and by email) so that you and your friends can dive right in.

Bungie's website is currently experiencing technical issues. Likewise, Sony's support website currently lists the PlayStation Network's status as "intermittently available"--likely as a result of the Destiny beta's launch. "The PlayStation Network is currently experiencing high volume and users may experience issues when connecting to the service," the page states. "We will update you with any changes that may occur in regards to this issue. Thank you for your patience." We've contacted Sony regarding the issues and will report back with anything we learn.

Bungie has not yet decided if progress from the beta will carry over to the final game. However, if you play the beta after 8PM Pacific on Saturday, July 26, you will receive an exclusive emblem for use in Destiny when it's released on September 9.

The beta runs from now until July 27 at 11:59PM Pacific, though it will be offline on July 21 and 22. Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners will be able to join the beta on July 23 at 10AM Pacific.

If you're taking part in the Destiny beta, what platform will you be playing on? Let us know in the comments below.

Btw, I have two destiny Beta Codes which I am not using, so mail reply me with a good reason why you should get one of those two codes :)


Requirements:

- Lots and lots of online time, so no people who want to play it for 1 hour and then find out they hate the game..... -_-"   Online dedicated Bungie Fans :D

- People who wanna team up with me. I want to find some fun people who speak english and wanna talk via headset and join my party. Playing together is always better. It rhymes, so it's true. 

- And last but not least; no people below the age of 17 or older than 30. Sorry

I gave my two remaining codes to my best friends ( ps4) and we have been ripping it up co-op. I have not had this much fun on a fps in a long time. We have been playing mmorpgs together for about 7 years now ( ffxi and ffxiv ) and this game feels right.Can't wait for the full game in sept.

I'm not sure if I should get this game. I like it, but I would like to try it out first... That is why I want a beta code for Destiny.

I would love a Destiny code for my Xbox 360. I haven't used my 360 in so long (been playing my Wii U) and would really like to get into another good FPS. If the game is good enough, it might convince me to purchase an Xbox One, along with the Halo MCC. I'm hoping this game is as good as Halo 3!

The universe reminds me a bit of Titan AE, but, despite it being futuristic, I get this 'dark ages' vibe off it too. Groovey.

Played it for about 20+ minuits last night. So far I am highly impressed. Love the universe. The lighting and sound are incredible and the guns feel apropriatly savage -anything in CoD now will feel like a silenced pistol by comparison.
