This is part of playing a connected gaming experience, and during the Destiny beta Bungie hopes to find and fix any issues when thousands of players are online. There is an even bigger stress test scheduled for Saturday at 2PM.
Destiny Beta Networking Issues
If you cannot stay connected to the Destiny beta you are experiencing the Destiny beta party stabilization issues that Bungie talked about last night. You will see a variety of error messages directing you to Bungie for more information.
If you encounter the Destiny beta party issues on Xbox One, you should turn the Xbox Off, unplug it from power and then plug it back in and try to play the Destiny beta again.
For users that still experience the issue, or who are playing the Destiny beta on PS3 or PS4, there are a variety of networking steps you can take to try and fix this on your end.
- Switch to a wired connection.
- Don’t use other devices on your network.
- Don’t stream or download files.
- Check your NAT type.
Some Destiny beta problems which tell users to search for bungie.net jackrabbit or baboon are already reported to Bungie, and there is nothing else you can do at this time.
If you experience any networking errors while playing the Destiny beta, you may want to also check your router firmware or simply reboot your router and or cable modem. These basic steps can solve some party issues and NAT problems on other games and may work on Destiny as well.
Xbox One Destiny Beta Problems
If you attempt to start the Xbox One Destiny beta too soon you will get an error message that says,
“The installed game is corrupted. You must delete the installed game and then reinstall it to play this game.”
This does not mean there is something wrong with your Destiny beta download, and you do not need to start over in most cases. All you need to do is wait for the Destiny beta download to complete before opening it.
Open the Games & Apps screen to see the Destiny beta download progress. After the main download completes, start the Destiny beta and the second part of the download, which will also take some time.
