The Destiny beta is about to get under way in an hour, at 6PM in the UK, and it’s a release which is high on many people’s lists of things to play this week. With that in mind, we’ve two small initiatives to help TSA members scratch other TSA members’ backs over the coming days of gaming.
Beta Code Sharing
First up, with each beta code that was given out as part of a pre-order at participating retailers, you actually unlock three codes for your platform and region of choice – for more on redeeming your Destiny beta code, head over here. It’s a very cunning move by Bungie and Activision, to allow people to give their friends a taster of the game and help further stress test the servers. However, while many of you will have already promised your extra codes to friends and family, I’m pretty certain that there will be others who have two or more codes going spare.
As these PS4/PS3 codes are handed out on the Bungie site today, spare a thought for your fellow TSA members and consider giving your extra codes a friendly, warm and loving environment to spend its short time on this planet. Rather than saying you’ve got spare codes on Twitter or Facebook, and being bombarded with requests from total strangers, why not pop it down in the comments below or head into our forums and share your codes around?
Oh, and if you’re on the receiving end of this generosity, make sure to say thanks, so that others know that a key has been taken.
TheSixthAxis Destiny Clan
Helping to grease the wheels online, so that people can always find themselves a three-man fireteam to play in, we’ve set up a TheSixthAxis clan for the Destiny beta. It’s a fairly simple affair, with a front-facing message wall for little notes and a forum behind it, and the purpose isn’t entirely transparent to me at this time, but it should be a great way to get like-minded individuals into the game together.
So, just hop over to our clan’s page, log in with your PSN, Xbox Live, Facebook or Google account and apply to be a member. I’ll be checking in regularly to approve your requests. You can also join up via the Destiny Companion app – just bring up the menu from the top left corner and search via the magnifying glass – and I’d expect there to be similar functionality built into the game itself.
With that, it’s time to feverishly refresh the Bungie codes page and bring the servers to their knees in excitement. May all your code sharing be fruitful and your time in Destiny be full of joy and wonder. Catch you on Mars.
