I played some of this last night after the second time I reinstall the beta. To me it feels like Defiance, Borderlands and Halo in one.

BETA was available from 23:00 last night. I updated main post and title. I couldn't sleep knowing it was there so spent about 2 hours downloading it and then played through the first little bit which is a solo tutorial level of awesomeness. Hopefully I'll get to spend some decent time on it over the next few days though got a new clutch install for my girlfriend half finished on my driveway Shocked

Also got a code for the 360 so I'm going to load it onto there later too, so I can see what the difference is between them.

Playing as a warlock if felt more like Mass Effect and Halo combined with new freshness added. I hope it continues to feel like this, as Defiance is TOO Multiplayer Evil or Very Mad and Borderlands is TOO Loot heavy Evil or Very Mad which makes me not want to compare it to them. I want it to be just right Very Happy

Ain't you a picky sod :p just kidding bud. The impression I am getting is so far. I think anybody can go to any planets or moon( still stuck on earth at the mo). But doing the actual mission in that planet or moon. Only you or your co-op buddies only can do that particular mission. I could be wrong on this I don't know much about the game.
In the citadel does remind me like Defiance cause you do see loads of people.

Guys just a quick one with downloading the beta for destiny, apparently it can come up with the following and looking into this there is a note from bungie.

The game says ready to launch at 2%

Do NOT launch it, wait for it to finish.

Yeah causing issue for some people. I did launch it last night. Basically you just get a title screen with nice music might as well just wait for it to download in you apps section though. Didn't cause me any issues as far as I could tell. The million Americans downloading it was probably more of an problem.

Thanks Fatboy Geezer. That's why I have to reinstall the beta Rolling Eyes oh well I know it took ages for some people but I thought it wasn't that bad to download. It took me about a hour and a half, that's including the second time I had to reinstall.

Yeah seems to be a social hub.

Problem for me is I can't help but think of the negatives when I hear comparison to those games and I want to keep a positive vibe in my head for Destiny and hope it lives up to it I love you

I felt Defiance gameplay was a bit shallow and the graphics were bland due to the sheer volume of everyone on the server. Also in shared public events (which there are in Destiny) Defiance would have about 100 people standing around shooting some big random thing. That sucked I thought, as there wasn't any overarching strategy and it was just a chaos of characters everywhere. I hope they keep the public events in Destiny low key with a only few fire teams present that can actually have a bit of to and fro with whatever you are fighting and make you feel like you are part of a larger battlefield style team than the ant like feeling I got when playing in Defiance.

It's looking good so far though. Graphics are amazing in solo bit at the start. Explored the tower a little an it's pretty impressive too so far so good. Just soooooo nervous, as I really want this to be my new Mass Effect/Halo universe, so will be really more than disappointed if I start finding things that bother me pale

Fair enough I can see where your coming from. No other games I can think of that is similar to be honest . No I have not tried the Warlock yet. I just quickly pick a random player on the Titan class late last night. But then again my character does remind me of Mordin(I think that was his name) the green guy from Mass Effect.

Yes your right Citadel is the central hub. I do like how you can store your equipment and armour in the citadel too.
Some of the guns I have used remind me a bit like Halo. One gun I have got remind me a bit like the dmr from Halo.
I am really enjoying it so far. Going to pre order this game this weekend.

And that's the main reason for the BETA like you said game is hard to describe, as while it has things similar to other games it's not really a direct copy of any one game. More like good bits from a load of games mashed together. So they're really depending on people just trying it so they can win them over and get them to buy it. More like an Advert Demo than a BETA I think.

Clever them giving everyone three codes, as that way when one person already excited about it since they likely pre-order to get the frist code plays it they will spread the word and get two of their friend to play it too pulling in more fans.

Yeah your right. I only just found out there are three sub classes for each class. Goes to show how much knowledge I got for the game lol. I am finding more new things on this beta. I don't want to say any more to spoil it. Also I haven't had one lag so far or any glitches, apart from people saying the the Xboxone chat not working. I haven't tried the multiplayer yet.

Yeah seems to be a Chat issue. If you snap the party you can talk to people or like the old Battlefield chat issue from when that launch if you go into a party then launch the game it works fine. Crazy that chat works so smoothly on the 360 all these years but seems so buggy on the ONE.

On another topic seriously impressed with the BETA so far. Got my first character to LVL8 last night and finished the last of the available single player missions, which was an amazing fight.

I used a second BETA code to get it on the 360 too and loaded it up last night to create a character there after being playing on the Xbox ONE all evening only to find all my Characters and Progress up to that point from the Xbox ONE were instantly available on the 360! Cross platform awesomeness!

Will have a proper go of the 360 version later but kinda seems similar to the way I heard someone describe the Titanfall 360 version. It's like the Xbox ONE version expect someone's smeared the screen with some Vaseline. Loading of areas running around the tower seemed a little jerky too compared to the smoothness of the Xbox ONE version.

That is cool about the crossover from xbox360 to xboxone. So people still play this and then get it on the xboxone without worrying they have to do it all again. I guess this works for the ps3 and ps4 too.
I thought the chat app was not working cause everybody was moaning about it on Facebook. I don't use it I was enjoying the single player and radom people for the co op. That co op mission is good too.
Glad you are liking the game Gabhlan. I thought yesterday when I was playing it you might find there was too much looty booty :p
I wasn't keen on the multiplayer side of it yet. I found it was a bit of a shotgun showdown. I have to try it again later on.
I wonder if the experience you gain on the beta carry to the full game?

Nah like loot hunting loot but in something like borderlands it's taken to the extreme and there's just so much and you have to look at 90% crap before you find something worth picking up for more than its sale value at the next vending machine. It's fun for a while but gets tedious as time goes on.

Only played one Multiplayer match myself was a bit using all the powers and heavy weapons against people. We kicked the other teams butt, think I prefer the single player part of the game though. I'm saving for a fancy BETA ship Very Happy

Bungie have said it'll be slower ranking in the main game so doubt very much progression will transfer. They reset all the multiplayer stuff in the Reach BETA so would expect the same here. Also fact they are giving a gift in full game for playing BETA after 21:00 on Saturday points to a wipe too.

I was really impressed by the cross platform transfer, even more so as it was from the ONE to the 360 and it was instant no importing this or that just popped up. I actually had to check I hadn't actually accidentally changed channel or something when I seen it Laughing usually with these things you can only transfer from old platform to new and even then it's usual a "big deal" once of rubbish thing. Does seem like good news if this holds true for the main game and anyone were to pick it up on the 360 and then move to the ONE later.
