UK GAME stores will give those awaiting Destiny the chance to play Bungie’s online multiplayer shooter early.
27 GAME stores will host Destiny lock-ins from today (July 17th) until July 24th, letting players try out the PS4 edition of the title.
Each lock-in store will stay open for two additional hours on a select day during the next week, giving gamers who aren’t part of the Destiny beta, which also starts on the 17th, the chance to play.
