Beta


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 ...

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 ...


You might want to cancel any plans you may have made to battle the Fallen over the next couple days, as the Destiny beta will be taking a respite until Wednesday.  "We are beginning the process of taking the Destiny beta...


Ubisoft's closed PC beta for The Crew will begin a couple days earlier than previously announced. It's now set to take place from July 21 - 25. What's going to be playable, exactly? A decent amount, considering The Crew's ma...


[Update: Codes all gone!] Our friends at Sony Online Entertainment have given us 10,000 codes for the Landmark closed beta to share with the Dtoid community! Landmark is a free-to-play, next-generation online sandbox game whe...


Oh, that's right -- Ubisoft and Carbon Games are bringing AirMech to Xbox 360 this year with AirMech Arena. The original browser-based release (which has since come to Steam) was good fun. It's real-time strategy, but instead...


[Update: And just like that, the codes are now gone! Huge members, we still have a few of your codes left. The rest of you, I'll update the post if we can get more!] Our friends at Midnight City have hooked us up with 5,000 S...


[Update: Contest over! Check your PMs to see if you won!] We've recently come into a hefty heap of Destiny beta codes, and we're going to hand them out to the Destructoid community! There are three ways to win: Comment in th...


We've known for a long time that there would be a Destiny beta this summer, we just didn't know any specifics about it. Now that information's available, and the dates are rather imminent, with PlayStation owners gettin...


I haven't paid much attention to Transformers Universe after it became something that more closely resembles a multiplayer online battle arena game -- albeit from a third-person perspective, like SMITE -- but looking at it no...


Folks who tried out the Battlefield Hardline beta last month provided Visceral with feedback and the studio has taken that to make 10 fixes/improvements to the game. Notably, player movement speed is now 10 percent faster and...


EA's beta for Battlefield Hardline may have ended, but anyone that missed out has another chance to get in on some early cops and robbers action. In a post on Battlefield's website thanking players for participating...


Our friends at Perfect World have hooked us up with 5,000 keys for the closed beta of their new martial arts MMO Swordsman! And in addition to the closed beta, these codes also unlock a Dtoid and E3-exclusive fluffy little la...


Kingdom Under Fire II, announced six years ago as a 360 game, is still still alive and feeling even more still alive with a proper PlayStation Blog post talking about the PS4 version, and a large scale raid video with scorpions, knights, guns, flamethrowers, and tits with super low nipples (3:15). 


Are you playing the Battlefield Hardline beta? I did, briefly, but I should give it another chance. Especially now that all of the currently implemented weapons and gadgets have been unlocked. (The full game will of course ha...


At this point, I'm pretty much a fan of whatever content Mega64 decides to create. After the Game Gurlz series, I was down for life. And now with the release of this "Beta Man" video, I'm doubled over with laughter ready to ...


Update 2: Codes all gone! If you're a Huge member and didn't get yours, email me and I'll send you one. Everyone else, better luck next time! Update: Damn, those codes went FAST! Luckily, we've just received another batch of ...


EA and Visceral Games have opened up beta access for Battlefield Hardline on PC. If you aren't already participating, you can now get in immediately by signing up here. Having only played a tiny bit of Hardline so far, I get ...


Last week, fans had the chance to sign up and play the Battlefield Hardline beta on the PC and PS4 -- which leaves one odd console out -- the Xbox One. Naturally everyone was wondering why the beta wasn't available on th...


Folks who pre-order Halo: The Master Chief Collection will gain entry to the multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians this December, as announced during Microsoft's E3 media briefing. A short CG trailer was shown which promise...


When you purchase a game from Steam Early Access, there's always a risk you take that the game you put down that hard-earned money on may not actually release in full. Sure, that doesn't always happen, but often enough that V...


Word has it that folks who watch Sony's E3 2014 press conference at a participating movie theater will be treated to Battlefield Hardline beta access on PS4. Some people who RSVP'd to the event have received emails welcoming ...


I am not into MOBAs, but I have had a blast every time I've played Magicka: Wizard Wars. Probably because you could murder sheep into a blood cloud and people didn't yell obscenities at me. And because Magicka is fun and sur...


Sony's streaming game service PlayStation Now isn't the type of thing I'd like to experience in a pre-release capacity but you can register here for a chance at entering the private beta. While it's currently accessible on PS...


[Update: Codes all gone! Hope you got yours!] Our friends at Paradox Interactive have hooked us up with a bunch of Early Access Steam keys for their upcoming MOBA Magicka: Wizard Wars, and we're handing them out to the Dtoid ...


It's crazy what can be considered a "beta" these days. Often times, betas are nothing but glorified demos, providing very little in terms of actual stress testing and used as more of a marketing tool. Sometimes I really miss ...


In 2010, Anthony Burch explained why SpyParty, though "two years away from release," was pretty rad. Four years later and a lot of that prototype art is still in SpyParty's first trailer, though it also shows one of the fina...


Two new screens for Deep Down are out in the wild, compliments of producer Kazunori Sugiura's Twitter account. But Sugiura also had a few updates for the game, noting that Capcom is currently being "intensively developed...
