Bungie Details Destiny's Competitive Multiplayer and Clarifies PlayStation Exclusive Content

Bang for your buck

Outside of the alpha and beta, we haven't heard or seen much regarding Destiny's competitive multiplayer offering. Both downloadable sneak peeks only offered one game type — control — so it's about time that we got a better look at the sci-fi shooter's various modes. And this trailer

Five Ways Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Multiplayer Will Pull the Property into the Future

Power changes everything

You could never describe Call of Duty: Ghosts as a bad game. It was predictable without a doubt, but it was an entertaining enough distraction for a few weeks. Of course, Activision sets its standards higher than that, and it wouldn’t be in control of the biggest first-person property on the planet if it didn’t. Call...

You Won't Be Able to Transfer Your Destiny Beta Characters into the Full Game

No surprises here

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.

Loners not allowed

Bungie’s somehow managed to peeve its playerbase for the second time in seven days, announcing that Destiny’s end game raids will not be playable unless you have five available friends. The firm recently irked fans by confirming that there’ll only be four locations in the game, with more to follow as downloadable content...

More People Participated in the Destiny Beta Than You Can Possibly Imagine

Intergalactic anticipation

Bungie made it incredibly easy to participate in the Destiny beta, suggesting that it was perhaps as much a marketing tool as it was a server stress test. A single pre-order netted you three codes to share with friends, while the whole thing opened up to everybody towards the end. Still, if you’re asking people to...

Why Destiny Still Has a Lot to Prove to Me

Sammy Barker takes Bungie's latest to task

I hate being the jaded gamer. Ever since Push Square’s inception, it’s always been my mandate to celebrate the industry from a perspective of positivity rather than cynicism. That negativity seeps into every facet of the medium these days; whether it's obsessing over resolutions and framerates or...

Destiny Will Keep Your PS4 Occupied for Months, Despite Limited Locations

Guardians of the galaxy

To say that Destiny’s beta has been a success would be an understatement – after all, we’ve talked about little else for the past two weeks. However, while much of that discussion has been overwhelmingly positive, developer Bungie has had to move to reassure fans that there’ll be plenty of content in the impending...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Seven: One Last Beta Adventure on the Moon

We'll meet again

What a wild ride the Destiny beta has been. For a long time, Bungie's latest was the 'next big thing' that we knew next to nothing about; a couple of E3 appearances, some concept art here and there, and a single slice of gameplay footage to gawk at – it was only these things that gave us the slightest hint of what the game...

A New Story Mission Is Taking You to the Moon in the Destiny Beta Tomorrow

We would never have guessed

Tomorrow marks the last full day of the Destiny beta, and what a huge success it appears to have been. Writing on its official blog, developer Bungie has confirmed that you'll be heading to the Moon, as the mission that's been sitting on our map screens since the beta began will be unlocked. Unfortunately, the new...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Six: Tackling the Strike's Co-Op Difficulty Spike

Got your back

All the way back in the hazy days of the Destiny alpha, complaints about the download's co-op based Strike mission were rife. Many argued that it was too hard compared to the other co-op activities, while others simply put forward the opinion that the big boss enemies of this hectic challenge were far too beefy, and that their total...

Everyone's invited

Even if you haven’t spent the past week or so playing the Destiny beta, there’s a good chance that you’re probably a little sick of hearing about it. That’s because we’ve been overloading you with diaries, images, and stories from the frontline for the past seven days – and there are still plenty more to come. Still,...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Five: Wasting Inordinate Amounts of Time at the Tower

The good life

When you really stop and think about it, Destiny's hub location dubbed the Tower is a beautiful thing. In a game where essentially all you do is shoot things in the head, the Tower provides a resting place where you can enjoy some downtime between stints of slaughter. You can introduce yourself to other players, buy new equipment,...
