When does the Destiny Beta Start Again?

If you attempt to play the beta on July 21 or 22 you’ll see a message saying,

“One Moment Please… The Destiny Beta is offline for scheduled maintenance. Visit Bungie.net for the Destiny Beta schedule. Your place in the queue: 1″

This message means you can not play the beta until it returns. So far Bungie has not confirmed the specific time that the PS3 and PS4 Destiny beta is back online. It is confirmed that the Ps3 and PS4 Destiny beta returns on July 23rd, but there is no time listed.

If you see this Destiny beta error message the beta is offline.

If you see this Destiny beta error message the beta is offline.

Given the original start at 10 AM pacific and the Start of the Xbox One Destiny beta at 10 AM Pacific on July 24th, it is a good bet that the PS4 Destiny beta restarts at 10 AM on July 23rd. This is not official, so there is always a chance it will open up as soon as the clock ticks over to July 23rd Pacific, but until Bungie offers final details this is the best guess as to when the beta starts again.

Destiny Beta Maps & Modes

Over the weekend the Destiny beta opened up with Iron Banner matches that added level advantages and delivered access to two new maps. It looks like these will return as part of the re-launched beta, but they may be limited to weekend play again.

Rusted Lands and Blind Watch are both part of the Iron Banner matches in the Crucible. This is the only way to play these matches. We’ll be watching to see if the Iron Banner returns on July 23rd, or if Bungie saves it for the special event planned on July 26th.

Destiny Beta Rewards

Although your progress does not carry over to the final retail release, there are some rewards available to beta players. Bungie already outlined a special emblem for playing the Destiny beta, but that is not all that will carry over from the teaser Bungie shared on Friday.

In the Bungie weekly update, Bnet Tru7h, writes, “You want to be there for that day. Report for Beta testing duty at 2PM Pacific. Your rewards will be handsome and permanent.”

Although an emblem is nice, it sounds like Bungie is cooking up something more for this special day of beta gaming. This is after the Xbox 360 and Xbox One Destiny beta start, which means the new participants have enough time to level up to the Crucible, where beta multiplayer takes place.

Destiny Beta Secrets

There is more to the beta than meets they eye. Destiny teases a plethora of Destiny beta secrets and hidden features.  Bnet Tru7h responds to a question about Destiny beta secrets, telling gamers, “Yes. If we told you about them, they would cease being secrets and you would no longer be challenged to discover them. Go explore!”

    there hasn’t yet been any official say on whether our beta characters carry over yet, so the statement involving that at this moment is incorrect.

    Since I started freelancing over this site, with a little effort I easily bring in around $65 to $95 per/h! This is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. I started 7 months ago, and now my monthly income is around $15k.

    Well i played the beta did a ship ton so far I’ve only discovered 10-11 dead ghost. (pretty sure it 10) which so you know there is one under the steps in the room with the hi lv monsters in the boat. There also 1 in the regaining of the game when you first get ur rifle. You have to run bk and keep ur eyes on the ceiling of the blacked out hall way. (even it being lit up it was very hard to see.)if anybody has got more then that let me know.
