Destiny Beta Trailer

Bungie and Activision have released a Destiny Beta trailer to remind us the beta window is just around the corner. PS4 and PS3 users get first crack at the Beta beginning on July 17 at 10AM PDT. According to the Press Release, PS Plus will be required for some special features. Those of you playing on an Xbox One or Xbox 360 will have to wait until July 23 at 10AM PDT to partake in the festivities and must have an active Gold subscription. It’s worth nothing the Beta will be offline for scheduled maintenance on July 21 – July 22 and will return across all platforms until 11:59pm PDT on July 27.
