This alpha is happening now through the weekend.
Update: Once again, all codes have been given out.
Coming straight to you from E3. I got to play 'Destiny' yesterday, and looking past the slick sound and visuals, the competitive nature really grabbed me. I just wanted to double jump over domination points, unless my special, and nail a double kill. And I did that, but it wasn't enough. My random press team versus an organized Sony team was doomed from the start. The upside is: my failure can be your opportunity.
Here's the deal, as we've reported, there is a public 'Destiny' Alpha going on this weekend on the PS4 but access is limited. (Here's the FAQ on that Alpha.) We want to give away multiple codes that we've been promised, but right now what I can guarantee is one 'Destiny' Alpha Token.
To be eligible to win this code, all you need to do is check out our Game Reviews and share three lines from your favorite three reviews. (One line from each review.) Share them in the forums, (specifically here), and I'll pick a winner later today. I'm at the show, so be patient. (I'll PM the code by this evening.) If you can show in your forum post that you've worked your entry into social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), that could be a big factor.
So I've played 'Destiny,' funnily enough on the same day I got briefed on 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection,' but I barely scratched the surface of the Alpha, both in terms of weapons and abilities (damn that shotgun). Who's going to be next? If you play the Alpha, share your impressions (like how best to tackle the big guns of vehicles and artillery). I look forward to seeing the entries, and I'll try to get some more codes from Activision. Maybe I can work in some small amount of Bungie swag.
