Assuming you bagged your pre-order at a participating retailer, you're probably now waiting with bated breath for the Destiny beta to commence next week on Xbox, enviously eyeing the PlayStation folks who get to play it later today. While you're waiting, you can download the Destiny companion app.
The Destiny companion app is now available to download for iOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play respectively. The free application enables you to take a closer look at your Guardian, analyse stats and compare Grimoire scores with others.
You can also use the app to message friends via the Bungie Community forums, groups or through private messaging, as well as being able to search for buddies via Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network.
Also, the Destiny beta won't be available on Xbox at 1080p, but Bungie assures that it's aiming to have the game run with full 1080p HD visuals across all platforms upon its full release in September. So there you go.
The Destiny beta will be getting underway on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later today, before temporarily going offline on July 21st and 22nd in preparation for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One beta on July 23rd. The beta ends on July 27th.
Look out for several Destiny videos on the site later today. Destiny is out on September 9th.
