Activision narrows down date for testing to begin

Destiny's beta test will start in July, Activision announced Tuesday.

The publisher revealed the date during a presentation on its first-quarter 2014 financial results. The studio previously announced that it would open up the beta for its multiplayer shooter in summer.


The Destiny beta will be available first to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners, Bungie confirmed in November 2013.

CVG recently published a hands-on Destiny preview , along with a lengthy preview video featuring gameplay details and impressions.

Bungie has also released a new 7-minute gameplay video of the game in action, showcasing a Strike mission, which sees three players co-operate to complete a designated task.

The publisher announced on Tuesday that it had invested $500 million into the Destiny franchise, saying that "the stakes for us are getting bigger."

Destiny will release for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9.
