In not so shocking news, Bungie has confirmed that the characters players created during the Destiny beta will not transfer over to the final game; meaning that players will have to recreate their character from scratch. This also includes players game stats.
Bungie designer Tyson Green explained,
Beta characters won’t transfer to the final version of Destiny. The vaults have been cleaned out, too. Step away from this update and take a walk. Have a good cry, or howl at the Moon. We’ll be here when you’re done.
The other changes made to the game is that new items have been added and some have been removed. Earned experience have been adjusted several times and there’s a new features toggled. However Bungie states the tweaks weren’t that monumental. Hopefully the same love for the beta will transfer to the final game.
Destiny will release on September 9th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
