Do you have to pre-order to get a beta key?

 

If so, I may have to miss out on the beta because I'll be buying it digitally on launch day. I can already tell that this game is going to be right up my alley so might be fun to get to experience it all fresh at launch.

It might be worth hitting them up. Bungie very irregularly give away codes on their facebook and twitter accounts but yea, Destiny beta is by preordering.

 

They might give you one if you contacted them explaining that you'll be buying digitally on launch, or maybe you could ask NZGamer nicely to see if they could get some codes to give away. Not sure who you'd ask though.

Yup, I've pre-ordered, entered my beta key and will be playing it on my XB One.

Rumour on the Bungie forums is Xbox might be getting the beta 4 days after PS.

Oh nice! I can handle that! Do they say how long the beta will go for?

Sweet, that's cool, at least there will be a few of us.

 

I'll chuck everyone's gamertags in the OP for ease of use.

 

Edit: And I'll change the OP after the beta so it's just a list of those of us playing Destiny so it's easy for us to find and add each other.

Just chucked an email to MA to see if they can get me a code.

 

I'm pretty sure the beta is Open though isn't? the code just gives early access?

Either way I'll be on at some point hha.

Cool, that's a good idea. They might be willing to give away a code or two. I'm not 100% how it works on their end.

 

I know the alpha was open but I'm pretty sure the whole idea about giving beta codes for preorders was so they could get lots of preorders. People will be up in arms if everyone just gets codes all of a sudden. Lol.

I've preordered from Eb but have only put $10 down so that I could get the code. I'll most probably cancel the preorder after the beta (just in case they can disable the code or something) and then will buy from NZGS or MightyApe depending on how desperate I am to play it on launch day.

As far as I understood EB were the only ones in NZ to be handing out Beta codes.

But it's so much more than an rpg! Do what I did. Put $10 down on a preorder, get your code and get a refund if you don't like the beta.

Yea I get that. I'll be using the beta to help me decide if I want to buy the full game or not. It's $10 for a demo and if you don't like that demo you can get your money back. Pretty sweet if you ask me.

Yea thats what I did... I'm still 50/50 on it.. Beta is a great way to test it out before you plonk the remaining cash on it.
