Xbox One Destiny beta will not render at 1080p

Xbox One owners have been dealt another blow as developer Bungie confirms the upcoming Destiny beta will not render at 1080p on the Microsoft console.

As if it wasn’t bad enough being forced to wait a week longer than PS4 gamers to be offered an early look at the eagerly awaited first-person shooter, the Destiny beta will now not render at 1080p on the Xbox either.

With the Destiny beta set to launch for PS4 gamers this evening, July 17, Xbox One owners looking to get some game time with the Bungie title will have to wait until next Wednesday, July 23. The beta will then remain open for all gamers until July 27.

Speaking during an IGN live stream, Bungie’s Community Manager David Dague has confirmed that Destiny beta will only render at 1080p on the PS4.

Despite Xbox One owners missing out on a 1080p beta experience, Dague has reassured gamers that come the game’s full release later this year, the Xbox One will render Destiny in 1080p at 30 frames-per-second.

The Destiny beta will allow registered gamers to invite two friends so they can enjoy not only elements of the single-player campaign mode, but the game’s co-op credentials too.

A final Destiny release date has been confirmed for September 9. The game will launch for Xbox One and PS4, as well as PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Sony has already confirmed that PS4 gamers will be offered exclusive content, with a new, white PS4 to be launched to celebrate the game’s release.
