Gamescom 2014 – Destiny is the most pre-ordered game in history.

How big are the pre-orders for Destiny? World-record setting in fact. But there’s more to Destiny than just numbers. There are also matches to be won in the Crucible. Check it out!

Your Destiny Beta character is dead

The Destiny Beta was an awesome experience for most of you - you made your perfect guardian (or three) and go in on all the exploration and destruction. You maybe even bonded with your guardian; you did create him/her after all. Well, it’s time to shed a tear. Your guardian is dead.

Destiny won’t change much post-Beta

Those of you who played the Beta for Destiny know just how slick and polished the game already is. It not only plays well, but it also looks and feels very ready. So, how much will it change before launch? Activision says not a lot.

Destiny Beta players faked moon landings

The Destiny Beta was a big deal. It's gotten tons of attention and helped the developers fix the game in ways they couldn't have anticipated without millions of people pushing capacity to its limits. Now Bungie has rewarded us with an infographic.

Destiny’s unconventional level cap

Destiny's beta restricted players to a rather low level of 8, meaning that you probably maxed out your character just a few hours into playing. That got a lot of people talking, considering the level cap was thought to be only 20. How was Bungie going to keep progression going with such a low cap? Well, because things change completely at that level.

Destiny’s six-player raids get more details

Destiny is going to have several flavours of gameplay modes when it launches. Exploration, story missions, the Crucible and Strike missions to name a few. But it’s the Raid missions that will truly test players out, as these high-level events are crafted for those gamers who can work as an actual team.

Destiny Beta is now code-free

With the amount of hype around this Beta, I can't even imagine how excited people will be when Destiny finally launches. It's a seriously fun game, and we gave away a bunch of codes so people could play. But now, you can get in on the action even without a code. Of course, there are still some "standard requirements".

Destiny’s Ghost Collector’s Edition is in very short supply

Technically, nobody needs a collector’s edition of a game. Double-technically, shut up Darryn these special editions are awesome. Destiny has one such retail version of their game coming up,that along with the usual digital fluff, art book and other steel case, also includes a replica of your trusty in-game Ghost. And according to retailers, this version of Destiny is actually living up the limited collector’s edition moniker.

Destiny Beta is back on, and open on Xbox

We had a bunch of fun with the Destiny Beta over the weekend. We have high hopes for the game - even people who aren't usually into the genre (like me) had a lot of fun with the Beta. Bungie has now given us another reason to like them.

Here’s the first 1080p Destiny footage for Xbox One

PlayStation gamers have been enjoying some Destiny goodness the entire weekend. Xbox fans are still waiting on the sidelines, but tomorrow the beta finally launches for Microsoft’s consoles. The beta runs at its full 1080p on the PS4, but last week Bungie confirmed that it wouldn’t reach that on the Xbox One. Thankfully, that’s only for the beta though.

The Hit List – Five things that impressed us in the Destiny Beta

You’ve already heard what Gavin has had to say regarding the early taste of Destiny. You’ve probably already ignored him, because what do Liverpool supporters know, amirite? I had a blast playing Destiny this weekend, an experience that I documented and went over. Here’s five things from the recent beta that impressed me, because you can totally trust a guy who has no strong feelings one way or the other to your favourite football teams.

Destiny is great, but it is missing some tricks

This weekend was the first time I’ve personally been able to put a good couple of hours into Destiny and the game is truly phenomenal. Bungie has done something incredible here and I truly think this will be the defining game of the next few years.

We played Destiny with the community, and everyone loved it

Why Destiny won’t let you cross play between PS3 and PS4

For those of you in the PlayStation world, this weekend was probably filled with lots of shooting and running around with your friends in Destiny. However, if all your friends aren't on the same platform, you can't play together - even if you're all on PlayStation. Bungie has a reason for this.

Bungie doesn’t want to scare gamers away

Destiny is huge and awesome and getting tons of hype at the moment. I'm downloading the Beta as I type, and I'm really amped to get into the game and see what all the fuss is about. However, Bungie knows that this is sort of like a first date, and they don't want to scare gamers away by being too pushy.
