Bungie has just opened the Destiny beta to everyone

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...

If you missed it, Hamza went up to Bungie's offices to play Destiny, and he wrote a bunch of words and stuff about it. I didn't actually feel like reading his articles, so I demanded he describe his time with the game out loud, and I wanted to make him uncomfortable, so I filmed the whole ordeal.

During their Q4 2013 financial results, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick proclaimed that Bungie's Destiny will be the "next billion dollar franchise" for the company.

While the initial reveal left a bad taste in my mouth, I'd be insane to say I wasn't looking forward at all to Destiny. It's easily one of my most anticipated games of 2014 in fact, I just hope Bungie can deliver on their vision. In the mean time, enjoy some new screens from Destiny. It's probably stupid that I'm overly excited on discovering new cloaks to wear in the game, huh?
