Destiny beta may include new planets

Mars and Venus will reportedly be playable locations

The upcoming Destiny beta will include access to planets other than Earth, according to reports.

Bungie posted screenshots of new environments set to appear in the beta on its official blog, stating that there were 'hidden clues' tucked away.

According to Dual Shockers, these screens correspond with previously released concept art of Mars and Venus.

The implication, therefore, is that when the beta is released players will be able to travel to multiple planets.

PlayStation owners have already previously had access to an exclusive Destiny alpha, set exclusively on Earth, which began on June 12 and has since ended.

Bungie confirmed last November that the Destiny beta would be available first for PS3 and PS4 owners. It was later confirmed that the PS3 and PS4 beta will launch on July 17.

However, it was then reported that the beta will be available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in late July, meaning the period of exclusivity on PlayStation formats will be no more than two weeks.
