Arguably the most-anticipated game for the new generation of consoles, Destiny aims to be a sci-fi first-person shooter from the same folks who all but created the genre with Halo back in 2001.
Today, Bungie put out the call: pre-order the game now (which is set to launch to retail in September) and get early, exclusive access to the Destiny beta.
PlayStation 4 owners will get to play first, with a July 17th beta launch date, while Xbox One gamers will get to play just a week out on July 23rd. The beta itself will terminate on July 26, with a special event for all gamers who show up on the games servers before the end of the day.
Check out the trailer below for some gorgeous visuals along with a few details.
This week’s must-have games roundup features Gameloft’s latest Block Breaker release — the ultimate ball breaker for iOS — which boasts deeper, more intricate levels that take you far beyond a single screen full of blocks.
The revival of Bungie’s Marathon on the iPad — the first ever Mac FPS — is also on our list, in addition to an impressive 3D combat game from Glu, and more!
Remember Marathon? If you’re a long-time Mac user, sure you do: back in the early 90s, Bungie’s sci-fi FPS series was the one shining light illuminating the Steveless Dark Ages of Macintosh gaming. Even if you’re only a recent convert to Mac, though, you’re probably familiar in a roundabout way with Marathon: it takes place in the same universe and is the direct prequel to Bungie’s bestsellingHalo series for the Xbox 360.
Either way, we’ve got great news for any Apple gamer. Marathon’s coming back… this time for the iPad.
