We’ve been waiting over a decade for Halo developer Bungie to plot its return to PlayStation platforms, so we can understand your impatience when it comes to upcoming first-person shooter Destiny. Fortunately, it looks like the game will be one of the first releases to take advantage of Sony’s new PlayStation 4 pre-load functionality, as players that pre-ordered the game on the North American PlayStation Store overnight spotted a new icon showing a countdown clock.

While you won’t be able to actually start your download until a few days before the title’s official release on 9th September, that additional time should allow you to have the game installed and ready for when the clock strikes midnight. It’s worth noting, too, that purchasing the release through the Japanese giant’s digital plaza will also provide you with access to the expensive escapade’s beta when it becomes available. Have you added the release to your basket? Buddy up in the comments section below.
