Destiny will remain largely unchanged from beta to launch


By on August 7, 2014 at 11:13 am

During Activision’s financial conference call, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg discussed the successful Destiny beta, noted that we shouldn’t expect to see many changes at launch.

Hirshberg said that the beta was a success “both creatively and technologically, the biggest beta for this generation of consoles and the biggest beta ever for a new IP,” backing up last week’s press release.

He went on to say that players shouldn’t expect major gameplay or mechanical changes to Destiny at launch, primarily due to the success of the beta, “I would describe this as tweaks and not major changes, as we saw the fundamentals of the game to be very strong. And the good news is because we got 4.6 million players into the beta we were able to test the back-end in scale and it performed really well and stably.”

Destiny launches on September 9 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

Can’t wait to start equipping blue and better gear and see the other enemy factions in-game and play more of the story and…

September yet?



32 days, my body is ready.


Hurry up dammit! lol I haven’t been this excited for a game in a long long time.

Might have to fill the gap with the last of us remastered. Nothing much else going on at the minute.
