All Destiny Beta characters being deleted before official release


Bad luck if you spent hours in July building and training your character in the beta release of forthcoming RPG Shooter Destiny: Developer Bungie has announced that you’ll have to start all over again when the game is officially released on September 9th.


A post on the company blog quotes designer Tyson Green’s explanation for the decision:

“Since the Beta, we’ve continued to tune and adjust the game. The way you earn experience has been adjusted up and down a bunch of times. Items have been added and removed. New features toggled. Although there’s no single monumental change, the sum of the tweaks leaves characters from the Beta Build in strange shape that would be confusing at best, broken at worst.”

…Which actually sounds rather sensible to us. Though it would have been nice to have got a heads up before spending all of that time on the game, eh Bungie?

The game is set to launch on September 9th – so not long to go now.
