Giveaways Destiny beta key giveaway

The Destiny beta is officially live now, and thanks to publisher Activision and developer Bungie, we have 500 keys to give away!

Each of the 500 codes is actually good for three keys to access the beta on the format of your choice: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One. So if you get a key, you can share your good fortune with two of your friends and team up in-game.

This weekend's initial phase of the beta is exclusive to PlayStation, while Xbox owners have access from 6pm on Wednesday 23rd July. PS3 and PS4 owners can access the beta from now until its close on Sunday 27th July, but note that the beta will be offline on Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd July.

If you miss out on this giveaway, preordering the game at participating UK retailers will also grant you a Destiny beta key.

So what's Destiny all about? Here's the official blurb: "From Bungie, the creators of Halo, and the company who brought you Call of Duty, in Destiny, you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system, from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Defeat Earth’s enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost. Become legend."

Sounds like fun. And those of us who've played it say it very much is. The beta consists of a selection of key modes and locations from the finished game; for a run-down of what's in it, check out our guide to what's in the Destiny beta.
