With that announcement, Sony’s Andrew House also let’s us know that PlayStation 4 owners will be able to play on the Alpha version of the game starting this Thursday June 12. The Alpha will be running from June 12 to June 15 and you can visit Destiny’s Alpha sign up for more information.
No words just yet on when the Destiny Beta will be coming to other platforms, but Destiny will be launching across PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 9.
Destiny also released on stage a new E3 trailer, which was narrated by Peter Dinklage telling us how astronauts in the present day go to visit Mars in order to find life on Mars, but instead discover the alien being called the Traveler, which results in a golden age.
