Beta


Anyone who's planning to play The Elder Scrolls Online on consoles likely knows what they're getting into. The series is known for its scale, and MMOs are massive by definition. Those two together make for a game that wo...


The Halo: Master Chief Collection saga has been a tumultuous one. It was released back in November, and we're still hearing about fixes and updates. But there's a team hard at work on delivering a smooth experience for player...


I'm not hip on police vernacular. Like, "donuts spotted!" for instance. That probably either means they found donuts, or "spotted" is a cheeky word for sprinkles. Whatever the case, these Battlefield Hardline cops are stoked that there are some frosted confectioneries around. Typical.


Given the adjustments to the long-running Halo formula present in Halo 5: Guardians, players were bound to be vocal about what they did and didn't like in the multiplayer beta. 343 Industries is incorporating that feedback in...




It's not too often we see a major publisher humbled. With the announcement of Battlefield Hardline last year, EA and Visceral Games were ready to release another entry in the epic and grandiose Battlefield series. But soon af...


Out There: Omega Edition by Mi-Clos Studio is certainly a pretty little thing. Don't let its eye-catching pulp-comic appearance fool you, though. It's a difficult game. Think Oregon Trail meets FTL and you'll have a goo...


Today, EA announced that the Battlefield Hardline open beta will begin February 3 and end on February 8. If you haven't had a chance to play EA's version of cops and robbers, now is this time. Well, technically February is t...


343 Industries has had enough issues with Halo: The Master Chief Collection that, two months after release, it's come to this: public beta testing for an impending large-scale content update. Testers will be chosen from a poo...


Having any luck getting into the closed beta for Blizzard Entertainment's new MOBA Heroes of the Storm? If the answer's no, and you've got a little spare cash burning a hole in your pocket, then...


Destructoid has partnered with our friends at Blue Mammoth Games to give away a TON of closed beta keys for their upcoming brawler Brawlhalla! Brawlhalla is a super fun, fast-paced, 2D platform brawler for the PC where champ...


You can now sign up for the Xbox One beta test of Smite, Hi-Rez Studios' third-person, mythological MOBA. I'd recommend it to anyone who's curious about the genre but can't seem to get into Dota 2 or League of Legends. Be su...


There's a certain allure behind mystery boxes. What's in them? It could be anything. It could even be a boat; you know how much we've always wanted one of those. Well, Microsoft's offering a mystery box of its own today for p...


When we reviewed Halo 4, we really liked it. If you were to ask me personally, I was not enthusiastic about the game at all. Campaign aside, the multiplayer clearly lost sight of what made Halo multiplayer so damn fun in the ...


The Halo 5 beta is out for Xbox One preview accounts and select members of the press, and will be coming your way soon on December 29 if you are qualified. I...don't know how I feel about it yet, as my experience has bee...


Destructoid is giving away a bunch of Nosgoth closed beta keys! Nosgoth is a free-to-play multiplayer experience set in the Legacy of Kain universe, involving humans and vampires locked in a bloody struggle against one anothe...


We never got a chance to see if there was more than meets the eye with Transformers Universe; Jagex and Hasbro shut down the free-to-play MMO today while it was still in beta. The move isn't entirely unexpected, as it may hav...


Halo 5 looks damn good visually, but I'm a bit concerned in terms of the gameplay based on what I've heard so far. Thankfully I'll get a chance to try it out for myself later this month. Yep, the Halo 5 beta is inde...


Black Desert may never see a release in the West, but that's not going to stop me from geeking out over its extensive character creator, perhaps the best I've ever encountered. Actually, scratch that qualifier. Now that I've...


I am not opposed to change. While certain circles of Halo fans find it popular to hate Halo 4, I've always appreciated what 343 Industries did with that game. Sprint was a logical next step to character movement, while loadou...

To claim your key, just click the big button below! Then just head on over to this page and redeem it there for your console of choice (PS4 or Xbox One). The beta runs until next Monday. Have fun!


Digital Confectioners' gruesome shark-'em-up Depth has been high up on my list of most-anticipated multiplayer games for a while now. I mean, who doesn't want to assume the role of a great white shark and reduce their friend...


Rockstar thinks that maybe you shouldn't believe everything you read on the Internet. In fact, it's so steadfast in that mindset that it added a page to its site disclosing that those GTA V betas that people are signing ...


Don't Starve Together is a multiplayer expansion that's set to come to the base game in the future. In anticipation for the release, developer Klei Entertainment has generated two million beta keys. First up for the beta...


Did you spend any time using PlayStation Now on PS4? Too pricey? More of us will have the opportunity to test out the open beta for the streaming service now that it's available for PS3 "in mainland U.S. and parts of Canada."...


Seattle-based independent games studio Refract's experimental survival racer Distance will be coming to Steam Early Access this fall as an open beta. Until now, access to the futuristic arcade racer has been limited to a pri...


While there's no firm release date, you can pre-purchase a copy of Elite: Dangerous from Frontier Developments. To sweeten the deal, if you order now you'll get some digital goodies like an extra Eagle Fighter ship which sou...


As previously covered, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is a real game. It's not out yet, but it will be out on Steam soon enough -- an open beta is scheduled to go live on September 23. I was already toying around with the idea...


Mr Destructoid has gotten his greedy little hands on some codes for the Spacecom beta, and he's decided to hand them out to the Dtoid community! (This is actually quite generous of our robot overlord. He normally eats things ...


Austin-based studio Edge of Reality has just recently announced that a new four-player PvE Campaign beta will be available prior to releasing update 5.0 for its twerktastic free-to-play competitive shooter Loadout....


Remember kids, crime doesn't pay. That is unless you find illicit liquor floating in space and decided to slowly sneak into a space station without the cops seeing you. In which case, it very much pays. YouTube user Isinona ...


Almost Human games has recently announced that the sequel to its popular old-school dungeon crawler the Legend of Grimrock 2 is now officially in beta. Staying true to its word, LoG2 will be skipping Steam Early Access ...


If you ponied up the money necessary for the Pillars of Eternity Collector's Edition, then Obsidian Entertainment has great news for you! Available now, through Steam, these select few can download the "Backer Beta" for the W...


Over the past few days or so numerous PSN users have been reporting that they have been granted access to a special private beta for LittleBigPlanet 3. The invites seem to be rolling out for "creative" people who have previou...


Bungie has made the not-entirely-unexpected announcement that Destiny characters created in the game's beta will not carry over to the final version releasing on September 9, 2014. Here's designer Tyson Green explaining why t...


Where do you hide your pile of shame? If you're anything like me it's probably along some dusty, untraveled road on a moonless night, a quart of Evan Williams in your coat pocket, your trusty shovel in one hand and a newly-pu...


Rise of Incarnates is that Bandai Namco fighting game that's supposed to be like the Gundam Vs. series but sadly, unfortunately, without any Gundams. If Steven hadn't previewed it, I likely wouldn't be aware it exists, but I ...


Did you get in on the Destiny beta? I did, but only after access was opened to all. Managed to play for about an hour which, after the cut scenes and loading, wasn't enough time for me to get a true sense of how I feel about ...


The Destiny beta was extinguished late last night, leaving us with six long weeks to carry a torch for the shooter until Bungie rekindles the affair this September. "Your mission in the Destiny beta is complete," Bungie ...


So far, the Destiny beta's been gated off from the public-at-large. Well, sort of. A pre-order would grant you access, and registering your code would get you even more codes, so it wasn't too difficult to find a way in. As o...


Destiny's beta went down for maintenance yesterday. It was meant to come back on July 23, but it's back up right now, giving you something to do tonight. Me, I'm making ramen. Like, actual ramen, not an instant, 10 cent salt ...
