Destiny is an upcoming online multiplayer action role-playing first-person shooter video game in a "mythic science fiction" open world setting. It is developed by Bungie and published by Activision as part of a ten-year publishing deal. Initially, claims made by Activision's CEO Robert A. Kotick suggested that the development budget of Destiny was around $500 million; however, it was subsequently denied by Bungie's COO Pete Parsons, who stated in an interview that the game's development cost is not even close to the bloated estimate.
The game will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 video game consoles on September 9, 2014, with the live Beta test currently available to users until July 29, 2014.
In April, Bungie announced that PlayStation 4 is going to be Destiny's lead platform, and that the beta would launch first for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, on July 17, 2014. Bungie demoed live gameplay footage of Destiny at Sony's E3 2013 conference.
I have been playing the Beta of this on PS4 all weekend and its absolutely brilliant. The game itself plays like a cross between Borderlands and Halo, its easy to pick up and play, but at the same time the gameplay is challenging whilst being extremely rewarding at the same time as you keep leveling up your character and gaining better guns and equipment. Cant wait for the full version of this to be released, but in the mean time im gonna go back to playing the beta, like now....
