Bungie has officially made Destiny available to everyone by opening up the Open Beta stage for the title. It is said that everyone on an Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 can download the title on the PS Store or Xbox Live marketplace.
A quick note is that PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 pliers need an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus membership account to be able to download Destiny. PlayStation 3 owners are said to get it for free due to the fact that PS+ is not a requirement for multiplayer on the latter mentioned console.
The announcement is said to have been made on Destiny’s Blog, having Bungie stating that it already received a lot of good feedback from early access gamers. The Open Beta stage however is said to act as a stress test for the servers to make sure they are good to go for the title’s launch.
“Our work is not done. There is more we can learn. To make this happen, we need more Guardians to play. This is, above all else, a test.” the statement tells us. “we’re opening the Destiny Beta to anyone who wants to create a character and walk in their boots. Help us deliver the game you deserve. Before we shut this party down, we’ll welcome everyone who wants a preview of this brave new world.”
The Open Beta is said to now be live and accessible straight away. The download size is said to be 5.5 GB, which is not a lot given the complexity of the game itself.
