Destiny was announced last February and was unveiled as a sci-fi first-person shooter with social and online elements. The game was also confirmed to be released on the upcoming Sony console, the PS4. There is no release date for the game as of yet.

I've been signed up as one of their testers. It would be awesome to get a alpha/beta for Destiny.

@Mr_BillGates What about console hackers?, you moron

BTW, PC would allow this game too look and play far more then even the new consoles would.

Really? They are looking for ALPHA testers? So they are looking for their own employees? Did they lose their developers and they are looking for them?


GS please Alpha testing is done by people who was involved in the development of a piece of software.

some games have non-company alpha testers. the difference between this and beta is that usually the alpha is sent to very few people and there is a Non Disclosure Agreement (they cant film their gameplay and post it on the internet)

@jfontalba I'm just glad that for once they aren't selling Alpha/Beta access with pre-orders. Fucking sick of this trend of companies getting people to PAY THEM to test their game.

@jfontalba It is very odd for them to do alpha tests, especially since it would seem that the game is in the beta stage.

@TheAlmightyCow @Printul_Noptii They have said that it is a "console shooter only"...sorry. They are probably gonna beta test it on the PS3 and 360 since it's coming out for those as well.

I'll save you guys some time and by letting you know that I'm going to win, so don't even try to fill out an application because I already have it in the bag.
