Bungie is going to do “far more” than allow you to live stream Destiny‘s beta this summer.
According to the latest Bungie Weekly Update, the studio “will do far more than allow you to share your glorious war stories from the frontier,” says community manager “Deej”. “We’ll amplify your voices, if they are brave. Some of you will even be selected to play a role in our stories, as we go to war with (and against) our community in the wild for the first time. That will be as glorious a moment for us as it will be for you. Watch this space. We have plans within plans within plans.”
“Destiny, after all, is a thing to be shared.”
It’s not entirely clear what Deej’s rather cryptic words might actually mean, but it sounds like a number of community and live stream events are in the works for Destiny’s beta, announced to come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 first.
Answering more fan question, Deej also made it clear that service years on Bungie.net will be reflected in-game, though no specifics were given.
According to the update, it also sounds like the studio has shifted gears on to a new phase of development and are now working on a brand new build of the game. Game designer Luke Smith said these “next eight weeks are where it all comes together.”
In closing, Deej wrote that this “great time of reckoning will not be the end of our journey.”
“If you’re thinking you’re two months from seeing this game on your shelf, I’m still here to ask you to put on the brakes. The next phase awaits, in which you’ll be invited to launch head-long into the world we’ve constructed, like a test pilot clad in exotic armor,” he wrote, presumably referring to the game’s upcoming beta.
Destinly launches on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 September 9. Keep your sights on MP1st for more on the game!
