In unsurprising, but still slightly disappointing news, Bungie has revealed that you won't be able to transfer your Destiny beta character into the full game. Speaking on the title's official website, the daring developer stated that your avatar "won’t transfer to the final version of Destiny", while also noting that "the vaults have been cleaned out, too”.
Designer Tyson Green confirmed that the wipe is mostly thanks to changes that have been made since the test finished last month. "The way that you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled," he said. "Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the beta build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, [and] broken at worst.”
While this isn't at all unexpected, we're still a little miffed, as we grew to love our astral avatars over the course of the beta. In fact, our very own Ben Potter was so enamoured with his charming creation that he constructed a three minute video showing off his avatar's impeccable dancing skills. If you've got entirely too much spare time on your hands, you can watch that clip through here.
