E3 attendees will experience competitive multiplayer in “intense, skill-based arenas”.
Destiny alpha testers have been spotted in the wild, which has led to speculation as to whether an alpha for the upcoming online shooter could be on the way before the beta. Developer Bungie clarified that this wasn’t the case and that the alpha is currently only for employees. The good news, it means that the game is making great progress for the upcoming beta.
“Last night, we noticed you noticing us internally testing the Destiny Alpha. Here’s what that means for you: The Destiny Alpha has only been made available to Bungie employees. What this means for you is that we’re making great headway. At E3, attendees will be able to play our competitive multiplayer, putting their skills to the test in intense, skill-based arenas.
“For fans, the Destiny Beta will be the big, pre-launch hands-on experience. You can secure a spot by pre-ordering Destiny at participating retailers.”
Destiny releases on September 9th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC4.
