Destiny’s beta is drawing near, and Bungie has been dropping a few hints on the content we’ll be able to enjoy starting on July 17th. In the latest blog update they posted two screenshots that included “carefully hidden” hints.
Those screenshots are aptly named “beta screenshot” in their file names, and Bungie confirmed on Twitter that they’re locations we’ll be able to visit in the beta.
What they didn’t explicitly tell us is which locations those screenshots actually represent. Observation of older concept artwork reveals that detail. The first screenshots is set on Mars, probably in the location named Buried City, infested by the Cabal. The second location should be set on Venus, around the Academy on the Devastated Coast.
The blog post itself mentions that “most of the big rocks are in place,” and “big rocks” can easily be interpreted as “planets,” meaning that most of the planets are indeed playable.
Looks like on July 17th we’ll finally be able to travel into space and past the limits of old Earth.
You can check out the two screenshot and a couple pieces of concept artwork showcasing the locations just below.
