Do you think that Destiny will have a beta?

A multiplayer beta. That is if it has any multiplayer.

  • I hope we get a beta, it would be nice. But maybe not an open beta where anyone can play it.

  • It most certainly won't be an open beta like Reach. [Edited on 12.22.2012 9:07 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Kivell I thought the Reach Beta was awesome as well. There ARE community members that HAVE already Beta tested a portion of this game.[/quote] I gotta say, I enjoyed the heck out of the Reach Beta. It convinced me to try my hand at multi-player again, when I'd been pretty well sworn off it after crappy experiences with anti-female Halo 3 players. If I hadn't moved out to dial-up rural internet purgatory, I'd be champing at the bit for a similar experience.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] footballkid18 It best have one.... [i]or else...[/i][/quote] I do agree with this. We need a public beta because our hunger for Destiny will never be satisfied until we get to try the game.

  • I don't know if Bungie is going to do a mass public beta like they did with Reach... I think beta's like that have both advantages and disadvantages. But they certainly seem to be doing selective call-outs and such. All this just makes me more excited for Destiny's release.

  • Reach beta - fixed DMR loadout on the first stage of invasion Boneyard. They were incredibly vicious to the poor elites stuck at the bottom.

I'm sure when Bungie does go public with the beta we will gain throngs of new memebers. Good times are in store for all! * A good way to see who has or has not played [i]it[/i] is check out who does or does not reply to threads of certain themes.. [Edited on 12.10.2012 12:41 PM PST]

If not I'm still ok with it.

  • Bungie isn't stupid enough not to do a beta, if there is a large multiplayer element. They aren't 343i.
