Just watched the Playstation Access gameplay of the Alpha, totally on board for this. Looks awesome.

Is this Beta pre-load only for EU? I pre-ordered digitally and never had anything related to the Beta show up anywhere, and I never got anything from Sony about it either.

What was your sensitivity at in the alpha? Default was pretty sluggish for me, had to crank it up to 7.
I think it was a level above default. I usually play with my sensitivity about half way up. I just can't play with it high. I know it probably costs me but I'd rather my game play be smooth and my aim be better while still having fun. When it's cranked I overshoot everything like all hell and then it seems juddery to me like in that video.

Hm. I'm kind of bored, so here's what I think the Beta will contain, in order from most likely to least likely.

Confirmed: Four multiplayer maps, as revealed through IGN's First for this week.

All but assured (the way I see it): The Tower, Old Russia exploration.
Most likely: Sepiks Prime, the one story mission in the Alpha.
Likely: Level cap increase, new Strike mission and/or story mission.
Less likely: new area to explore, though a possibility given the size of the Beta download.
All but impossible: A personal message from Peter Dinklage wherein he tells the grand history of wizards, space magic, and Pet Sounds.

The size of the Beta has me real curious; maybe we're getting more than I'm expecting.

My prediction: Level cap of 7, but we'll start at level 1 instead of almost 4 like in the Alpha. At least 1 more story mission - the one from the E3 2013 video that starts at the abandoned cars outside the wall. You can see it in the leaked Xbone footage. It's the tunnels under the wall that were empty on the Alpha. It has level 1 enemies and tutorial prompts ("Press RB to Melee").

One explore map (Old Russia), One strike (Sepkis Prime) and two extra Crucible maps (Mars and Venus)

I'd say you're close.

Here is my bet based off rumblings.

4 mutltiplayer maps
Campaign up through level 8
Player starting from beginning unlike alpha which plopped us in at almost 4 This would explain more compaign missions.
Sepiks Strike
maybe 1 other strike but I'm highly doubtful of that.
exploration like in alpha

That to me would be my educated guess based off rumblings etc.

How do you check the post count in each thread?
Go to the forum main page and click the number of replies. It's a link.

I didn't see the Xbox footage, but what you describe was in the Alpha. Or rather, you could go to that area and fight the same boss as seen in the E3 footage.

Can't play the beta, but just preordered the PS4 Destiny bundle. Really excited! Sorry if this has been answered before, but for anyone that has played the competitive multiplayer is there much unbalance from people having different gear?

Is this pre loading business only in EU or NA too?
Only for EU atm.

Like we said in the previous page, and the page before, and the page before

We all have the same stats during PvP.

I'm jealous of your future sexy White PS4. Maybe you should play the beta on your hypothetical PS3/360, no ?

Thinking about it, I think doublesith and Psychoraven are on to something when expecting not a level cap increase, but a level readjustment from 1 - 7 after being 4 - 8. Fits with Bungie's obsession with the number 7.
