In their latest blog post, Bungie has announced that the second phase of the Destiny Beta will now be open to any who wish to play it. The announcement was accompanied by news of an upcoming event that will take place today at 2 PM PDT.
The story event, which will leads players on a journey to the moon, will be open for two hours. In addition, all those who take part in the special event will be rewarded with a special nameplate to show they took part in the limited-time event.
According to Bungie, the event will serve as a test to see just how many players they can have together in one place at the same time, saying on their blog that, “Every single Guardian that can play is invited to a Public Event. Our shared mission will be to see how many of us can play at the same time. Only through our combined strength can we achieve victory.”
Bungie has done a fantastic job in the past with stress tests, so this event should go very smoothly. While the game is in beta testing now, the full version of Destiny will arrive in stores on September 9th for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels.
When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
