That's a no.
Big news to some, nothing to others, Bungie has laid bare its intentions for all those Guardians built up over the course of the 'Destiny' beta last month. To put it kindly, they've been disposed of. They're gone. Dead. Not even a lifeless body to remember them by. No matter your progress in the beta, you will begin at level one with a new character come the game's final release on Sept. 9.
Here's the official word from Bungie's Tyson Green, the apparent steward of Guardian ownership and disposal:
"Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game. The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst."
Also happily forgotten are the contents of your vault, which means any weapons and gear collected over your temporary tenture are gone as well. Oh, you weren't saving that, were you?
