As expected, beta for Bungie's highly anticipated MMO shooter Destiny will begin in early 2014. The beta was already outed by online retailer Amazon, but Bungie followed up today with an official press release confirming the promotion that will grant fans who pre-order the game access to the beta for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, or PS4.

And to celebrate the news, a new gameplay trailer for Destiny was released. Titled "The Moon," the video features a highlighed destination in the game, and the Hive, one of four enemy races featured in Destiny.

"We have no doubt Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.  "That means we're putting all our creative support, and all our expertise in creating blockbuster franchises, into a colossal Destiny Beta that we believe will set a new bar for the next generation of games.  Fans have a lot to look forward to in 2014."

"Destiny is the most ambitious game we have ever made, and it's our chance to transform the way you experience a new Bungie universe," said Harold Ryan, Bungie president, added.  "From day one Destiny has been an incredibly bold vision that Activision shares with Bungie.  Destiny is a massive universe that is populated by the players, and for that reason we need fans to get their hands on the game, fans all around the world.  We can't wait!"

Destiny beta redemption codes will only be available at participating retailers while supplies last. Instructions can be found on Bungie's official website for how to redeem them.
