Halo creator Bungie has released the free companion app for its upcoming shooter Destiny, which will be playable for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners tomorrow in beta form. The Destiny app, as previously detailed, is free.
You can download it today from either iTunes or Google Play. The app, which Bungie hopes is a helpful option for players, shows a 3D version of your character and you can change armor and have the game respond instantly.
The app also lets you monitor your inventory and check out the loot you've acquired on missions. It also serves as a compendium of Destiny's lore, allowing you to read about the game's characters, locations, and events as you trek through the world.
On top of that, the Destiny companion app lets you access forums, groups, and private messaging so you can stay in touch with your comrades. Lastly, the app will contain the latest news and updates about Destiny.
The Destiny beta begins tomorrow, July 17, for PS3 and PS4, before coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One on July 23. The beta ends on July 27. To guarantee yourself a spot in the beta, you'll need to preorder a copy of the game.
Just a day before the beta's arrival tomorrow, Bungie has not yet said what Destiny players can expect from it. However, it is rumored to contain four story missions, four multiplayer maps, a cooperative Strike, and more. Bungie also recently revealed that it has not yet decided if the progress you make in the beta will carry forward to the full game when it arrives on September 9.
