Good news, everybody! The Destiny beta test is back, and it’s back ahead of schedule. Originally the plan was for the maintenance to extend into Wednesday, and then likely not return until early evening for Europeans, what with Bungie running on PDT. However, as some were lucky enough to discover just before bed time in the EU, Bungie got the game up and running again just a little bit early.
We finished our maintenance early to get you in the game! Check your email or your http://t.co/S2tfRP3mNB profile page for your codes.

That’s had a knock on effect of allowing them to chuck out Xbox One and Xbox 360 codes left, right and centre, as the team in green get to join in on the action. If you’re after a code on either Xbox, the process is the same as it was for PlayStation gamers last week, of feverishly refreshing the codes tab under you Bungie.net profile. This will similarly give you an initial smaller download followed by a larger one. PlayStation players, meanwhile, have a small patch to version 1.02 to enjoy.
Quite tantalisingly, for those who have already seen much of what the beta has to offer, Bungie wrote on their news page:
If you’ve already played, you haven’t seen everything yet. We’ve got some surprises in store, and if you play on Saturday, July 26th beginning at 2pm PDT, we’ve got a permanent reward on reserve that will commemorate the experience.
While we already knew about the permanent rewards for playing on Saturday, the promise of further surprises is something to look forward to, potentially similar to the Iron Banner competitive play or opening up new co-op missions.
