Thanks to Bungie giving away a Destiny alpha code on Twitter today, and my happening to F5 just as they tweeted it, I’ve been playing Destiny for most of the day. Above is the latest special 15 Minutes of Game.
The footage is from I believe within my first hour of playing. In the alpha, you start at level three and quickly hit four. The max level cap for the alpha is eight, and I hit that a little while ago.
This gameplay footage just shows off some free roam exploration and side missions (there’s only one story mission in the alpha). There’s no Tower (city hub, basically the MMO flavor) footage included or any PVP (or co-op for that matter, although you can see a couple of folks at one point). Video of all that stuff is coming soon.
I’ve got LOADS more Destiny videos coming; most will just be on our YouTube channel though, so please go subscribe to it. Got a video on the channel now showing off the character creation.
In addition, I’ll also be live streaming the alpha sometime this week (probably tomorrow night).
Destiny releases on September 9th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. My full alpha impressions are coming soon, but suffice to say I am absolutely loving Destiny. Even in its alpha state months away from release, it’s pretty amazing. Beautiful to look at and super fun to play. If you like Halo and/or Borderlands, you should love this.
