Destiny Alpha

Destiny Public Alpha Logo
Destiny Alpha was an Alpha build of Destiny that had limited public availability, lasting from June 12 - 15, 2014 with an extended day of testing to introduce some "dangerous new experiments." During the week of the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2014, Playstation 4 players with a Playstation Plus subscription were able to apply before June 11 for the chance to play the alpha at GreatnessAwaits.com. The users that were accepted into the testing phase were sent the codes the next day after the deadline via an on-console message and an email address they had registered with at 12 noon. Bungie confirmed that the alpha would be open to everyone who registered. Players who had played an earlier version of the alpha did not have to wait for the confirmation email as their access was carried over from the last testing phase.

[edit] Overview

The alpha allowed players to explore three main areas of the game, Old Russia on Earth, The Tower and the Crucible. The players were able to create their own characters via the character creation menu, choosing from one of the three classes, Titan, Warlock and Hunter and then from the three playable races, Human, Awoken and Exo. There also a variety of aesthetic alterations players could make to their characters such as tattoos (known as marks), facial hair, hair color, etc. Once inside the alpha players had full explorability of the areas available and could even undertake story and side missions on Earth, either by themselves or cooperatively with friends or random strangers.

The characters created during this phase of testing will not be able to pass to the Beta phase of testing.
