The new Destiny beta game play testing launched yesterday for the PlayStation 4 console and now Digital Foundry has released the first footage of their framerate testing and gameplay you can expect to enjoy.
The PlayStation 4 Destiny beta game is 13.2Gb in size and includes a tutorial section during which you are tasked with creating a new guardian to help you on your adventures.
Destiny beta also includes four competitive multiplayer maps, a cooperative Strike, and a huge open world environment for players to explore accompanied by their own unique Guardian. The initial gameplay builds on the alpha build’s Devil Within mission now with new cut-scenes and previously unseen bosses. Eurogamer explains more about the frame rates issues apart whilst playing:
“Unfortunately, the beta version of Destiny continues to show signs of an uneven spread of frames, which while averaging out at the promised 30fps, produces a judder sensation to lateral camera movement.
As a shooter played largely from the first-person view, the camera pivots more aggressively than most games, making this issue easier to pick out. It’s very much playable, but we feel Bungie is doing itself a disservice given its in-house engine is clearly capable of pushing out a rock-solid frame-rate.”
Yesterday we also learnt that the resolution within the Destiny beta game will be locked down to 720p for the Xbox 360, but will be available as 1080p in the final release of the game.
Destiny will be officially launching on September 9th, 2014 and will be available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
