One of the questions still unanswered about the Destiny beta starting this Thursday is whether our beta progress will transfer over to the full version of Destiny when it launches on September 9. To try to get an answer from Bungie, Eurogamer spoke with Community Manager David Dague, who stayed vague on the subject:
The beta is a test. It’s extremely unknown as to what the outcome will be. So, it’s certainly not a promise or an announcement that we’re making at this time. It all depends on what we learn and how things shake out. So, we’re certainly not telling players they can carry their progress over, but we haven’t made any announcements either way.
So we reserve the right to talk about that later.
When it comes to questions regarding the level cap, the Crucible gameplay modes, details on Strikes in the beta, and more, Dague said, “In typical Bungie fashion we’re keeping our cards close to our chest because we want players to enjoy the exploration fantasy of Destiny. We want them to enjoy the act of discovering things in a vast landscape.” With the beta only a couple of days away though, it shouldn’t be too long before we learn everything.
Also in the interview, Dague revealed Bungie is “actually pretty satisfied with the balance between the Guardians,” but when it comes to the assault rifle called the Galahad-C, the alpha proved it was too powerful so “it was like, yep, you’re getting nerfed Galahad. Sorry.”
