Early Access via digital Pre Load BUNGIE PLEASE READ

Dear Bungie, First off, thanks for all of your hard work; all of us (trolls and non trolls alike) are truly excited to get our hands on Destiny come 9/9. But, I do have one humble request. You made it clear, "As soon as it's 9/9 somewhere in the world, the servers will be online. When you play is between you and your retailer." My request, though I understand it is highly unlikely I will get an answer, does this mean those of us who digitally pre loaded (via xbox live or psn) will be able to play starting 9/8 at approximately 8am EST? Now, before you say yes or no or say nothing lol, the reason I ask this information is because the lack of a definitive answer is causing a whole lot of speculation. Hope you can give us all a yes or no or wink or something. Respectfully, Cooteraveli Edit: the 8am EST based on the fact that it turns 1201 in New Zealand around that time

    You must construct additional pylons - old

    The game can't be accessed early (even those doing Destiny reviews will have a [url=http://www.polygon.com/forums/destiny/2014/9/2/6097679/a-note-from-the-reviews-editor-no-release-day-destiny-review]difficult time getting in[/url]). Destiny releases on 9/9. Even if you get the physical disc early (9/8), you cannot play, servers won't work. When it hits New Zealand midnight for you on 9/9, it will work - if you have a physical disc. The rest of the world has to wait until it's midnight their own time to play. If you're going digital, you must wait until midnight PST as announced by Microsoft and Sony.

That is determined by your console manufacturer. Luckily, the console manufacturers have given us definitive answers: The digital editions unlock in the US at 12:01 AM PDT 9/9. If you're on the east coast, that's 3:01 AM. Presumably, that means if you want to it to unlock early, you'll have to travel to Alaska or Hawaii.

    • Digital downloads will be set to midnight in each region. Early play may be possible with Xbox One as region switching can give people access early. So far it hasn't been talked about if it is possible on PS4.
